# Boo! Ghostly Math Fun for Making 10

Knowing the combinations for making 10 is an important early childhood math skill. Ideally, we want our students to leave Kindergarten with automaticity for the combinations of the numbers to ten. With Halloween just around the corner, your students can use this boo-tiful little freebie for practicing their combinations for ten!

The board has ten friendly ghosts and numbered ghost cards. You will also need ten two-color counters. Students 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! There’s also a little recording sheet students can use to record all the combinations for ten.
