JACK-O’-LANTERN Math

We’ve been working on shapes over here the last couple of weeks. I’ll be sharing more of our activities over the coming weeks!

In honor of Halloween, I made 4 pumpkins with pre-drawn faces (shapes) on the front and asked my child to match them with black shapes that I cut out.  As she matched them, we named the shapes together.

The back of the pumpkins are blank so it was her canvas to create whatever faces she wanted!  Again, we named all the shapes.

Lastly, we counted out how many of each shape that we had and graphed it on paper together. We talked about which shape had the most, which the least, and which the same amount or equal number of shapes.

Let me know if you do this activity and what you think!
