Google Slide, PDF | 1 page | Grades: 1

Model and compare numbers to twenty using ten frames with a fun and engaging Halloween math worksheet.

Halloween Math with Ten and Twenty Frames

Ten-frame activities are a great way to help students see, visualize, and represent numbers in multiple ways. They’re also important for learning how to use and apply numbers. Incorporating ten-frame activities into your number sense lesson plans is a great way to help students learn this important skill.

After introducing ten frames and familiarizing your students with this tool, you can use ten frames and twenty frames to have all sorts of fun in the classroom!

This Halloween worksheet puts their comparison skills to the test. Students are provided two twenty-frames and must color each frame to represent the number given. Then students will be asked to compare the two numbers using <, >, or =. 

Through this activity, students will show they can count objects up to twenty, and compare two-digit numbers using <, >, and =.
