Halloween Math Fun!

Halloween is a great topic to use to motivate kids in math!
Adding a little bit of Halloween to your math means adding loads and loads of fun too!

Halloween Fractions

Here is a really simple way to have some fun with fractions at Halloween.
Brainstorm a list of Halloween words then calculate the fraction of consonants and vowels.
This is a great activity for developing the concept of fractions.
Playing games is also a great way to incorporate Halloween into Math time. That's why I have created 4 new sets of Halloween Math Games for grades 1 to 4.

Halloween Math Games Grade by Grade

These sets allow students to practise and review basic math concepts for their grade while they have so much fun that they don't even realize that they are actually learning!
Each set contains 14 printable Halloween Games. The games are a mix of board games and No Prep game sheets for 2 players. These games are ideal for Halloween math centers, fast finishers or even Halloween homework. Let me show you a few games from each set.

 
These games are from Halloween Math Games First Grade.
The Count Dracula Board Game has children count their way around the board.
In Halloween Spooky Pairs Add to 10, the players take turns to color a pair of adjoining numbers that add to 10. The last player to color a pair is the winner.
