Differentiated Pumpkin Spin and Cover Math and Literacy Activities



These differentiated pumpkin theme spin and cover games are no-prep math and literacy centers that are perfect for kids at many different levels of ability.

Pumpkin Theme Spin and Cover Games

I am so excited about these new math and literacy games! I think they are going to save you so much time while also making it even easier to differentiate for all of the different needs of your students. I know, it sounds crazy. Save time and differentiate?! But it’s true!

Not only are the games highly differentiated, but they are also print and play. No cutting required! And if you put them in write and wipe pockets, you won’t need to laminate them either. So easy!

There are two design choices for each game. One option has pumpkins as the frame for each choice and one that uses simple circles instead of pumpkins. This circle option is perfect for kids who are distracted by too many design elements on the page.

How to Differentiate the Spin and Cover Activities

There are two pumpkin theme spin and cover sets. One focuses on math skills and the other focuses on literacy skills. Each set includes several different levels. Not only that, there are a large variety of recording sheets available to further differentiate the activities.

The literacy set covers:

  • Beginning sounds
  • Ending sounds
  • Middle vowel sounds
  • Beginning and ending digraphs

The vowel sounds and digraphs spin and cover games include words so that students are able to be more independent with the activity.

The recording sheets have variety of options which include multiple choice, tracing letters (both uppercase and lowercase) and blank so that you can choose the option that works best for each student.

The middle vowel recording sheets have options that include using a word bank and or doing it without.

The math set covers:

  • Numbers 1-10 (ten frames and counting pictures)
  • Numbers 11-20 (twenty frames and base ten blocks)
  • Addition facts to 10

The recording sheets also include a multiple choice option, a number tracing option and a blank option. This way you can further differentiate the activity for each student’s particular needs.
