Pumpkins Five Game


We have been working on adding and subtracting fluently to 5.  I designed this game for my math workstations. The game boards have five pumpkins and there's a set of several sets of cards from 0-5. I placed the cards in the jack-o-lantern box.You will also need a set of two color counters. Choose a card, place that number of red counters on the board. Then place the remainder of the counters yellow side up. Record them on the pumpkin response sheet and write the equation.

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from. 
5. Fluently add and subtract within 5.
