Solving Addition Problems
For a fun way to practice addition to 10, students will look at the picture of the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch. They will count the pumpkins in each wagon.
Next, they will look at the 4 numbers on the side of the screen and drag the appropriate numbers into the boxes to make the pumpkin number sentence true. Students will use their problem-solving skills to figure out which numbers will create a real pumpkin addition sentence. There will be one number that they do not use.
Differentiating The Pumpkin Addition Activity
This activity includes 20 different addition problems. You can differentiate this digital math activity in many ways. One way to differentiate is to assign students only certain slides to make it easier or more challenging. If students need more practice and assistance, you may assign 10 problems. If they are ready for more, they can do all 20.
Additionally, you can reorder the slides to have students focus on addition facts to 5 if they are not ready for addition facts to 10.
For students who may need a hands-on element to solve the problems, they could use ten frames and manipulatives to help them solve the problem.
For advanced learners, they could create a number bond after solving the addition equation to match the addition sentence.
This pumpkin addition game would be useful for:
- whole group math instruction
- math centers
- small groups
- digital stations
- distance learning
- addition fact assessment
- equation building assessment
- pumpkin or Halloween-themed activities
