Halloween is a special day in elementary school. Between lots of costumes, our school wide dance party to Thriller, and the looming five day (yes, 5 day) weekend for students, there wasn't a lot of focusing on work from my students.
Instead of fighting for their focus, I did math games. They were aligned to the standards and students were working on math, but in a fun way.
Game 1: Decimal Place Value Spooky Sort, created by Jennifer Findley
We have been working on rounding and decimals, so this was perfect for them to round to the specified place value!
Game 2: Adding and Subtracting Decimals, created by Jane Feener
This was perfect for my students! I'd just explicitly taught adding and subtracting the week before so it was a great spiral review.
Game 3: Sweet Rounding Decimals, created by Fun in Fifth Grade
Again, another awesome center to review math concepts!
Oh, did I mention all these fabulous games were free? Be sure to leave their creators some love on TpT!
