Halloween Counting and Subitizing Freebie

 Today I wanted to stop by and share with you this subitizing freebie game that's perfect for Halloween. If you're not familiar with subitizing, it's a fancy name for quickly being able to recognize "how many" without actually counting. It's an important skill that, once mastered, will help students become successful mini mathematicians. 

Here's a fun little Halloween freebie to teach counting and subsitizing to your Kindergarten students. Just print and add dot cubes {dice}. This activity can be played independently or with a partner. Two versions are included with numbers to 6 and numbers to 12.

One of the first ways you can introduce subitizing to your students is through the use of dot cubes {aka dice}. For this activity students roll the dot cube and identify the number they rolled. They find a matching candy corn on their game board and cover it. They continue rolling and covering the pictures until all of the spaces have been covered. 

Of course if your student(s) or child is just learning to count, this is a great game to simply introduce counting and one-to-one correspondence. By all means, allow your little one to point and count as they identify the numbers.

If you're wanting to use this activity during your Halloween party, you could have students play with a partner. Supply each student with a different set of manipulatives to cover their answers. If a student rolls a number and all of the corresponding candy corns have been covered that player loses a turn. Once all of the candies have been covered, the player with the most spaces covered wins the game.

I've also included a version using two dot cubes. This one encourages students to add the numbers together. This version would be great for your little mathematicians that are ready for higher numbers, or for first grade math stars!
