Be-Leaf Me! Fall is Great! Using Leaves in Science Investigations

FREE MATH LESSON – “Count the Spiders! A Halloween Math Game Freebie”

by Exceptional Kinders

Pre-Kindergarten – 1st Grade

Count the Spiders! Math Game Freebie

This is a 2 player game. Each player takes a game board (a spider web). 1, 2, or 3 dice are needed for this game. For younger students, roll one die and place the correct number of spiders on their game board. Counters for counting my 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s are included.
Older students can roll 2 or 3 die and add the numbers together to get the number of spiders they should take. When all of the spiders are gone, the students count the spiders on their game board. The player with the most spiders wins. Directions for a subtraction game are also included.

Common Core Standards:
K.CC.1 Count to 100 by ones and tens.
K.CC.4 Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.5 Count to answer “how many?” questions about as many as 20 things arranged in a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered configuration; given a number from 1-20, count out that many objects.
K.CC.6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, e.g./ by using matching and counting strategies. (Include groups with up to 10 objects.)
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.
1.OA.5 Relate counting to addition and subtraction
1.OA.6 Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10.
