Boo! Ghostly Math Fun for Making Ten

Written by Donna Boucher

Donna has been a teacher, math instructional coach, interventionist, and curriculum coordinator. A frequent speaker at state and national conferences, she shares her love for math with a worldwide audience through her website, Math Coach’s Corner. Donna is also the co-author of Guided Math Workshop.

The talented folks at Graphics From the Pond had a fabulous holiday idea! They made the cutest little ghosts and offered them to TpT friends to use for making activities. My offering is Ghostly Make Ten, and it’s a freebie!

The board has ten friendly ghosts and numbered ghost cards. You will also need ten two-color counters. Kiddos practice their combinations by turning over a card, putting that many of one color of counter on the board, and then adding counters of the other color to the remaining spaces. They just keep repeating it! You can have them write the equations to go with each combination if you’d like.

Grab your freebie at my TpT store.  Looking for more making ten resources?  Check out my Make a Ten Bingo game!

    I am in awe of all the great things you offer. These will work nicely as we study 10 frames! We need more fun in school-it has been almost entirely squeezed out! THANKS!

      I’m thankful to be able to combine two of my passions–math and playing around on the computer–into something that is useful!! 🙂

    This is great! I used it with my kindergartener today – and my preschooler joined in with the counting – a perfect fit for both their levels! Thanks!:)
