TRICK your kids into LOVING Math with our spooky Halloween Printable Number Games These Halloween printables make Learning & Teaching Number Recognition a TREAT!
It’s time to STOP hating on the Halloween hype and use it to YOUR advantage! You won’t regret it, I promise. Until recently I never ‘did’ Halloween topics or Halloween activities with my kids; in fact none of the teachers in my school ‘did’ a Halloween theme!
But the kids had other ideas about this. My reluctance to recognise Halloween didn’t stop the kids from being distracted by all things slimy, creepy and crawly, they absolutely LOVE Halloween so why not take that excitement and turn it into engagement and motivation especially when teaching number recognition?
