Now cut the pies out. Then cut each pumpkin pie into four slices by cutting along the solid orange lines. Store them in a ziplock bag or file folder to have a fun math supplement, extra practice, or math center ready to go when you need. it.

## Pumpkin Counting

Students will pick a number slice and then find other slices that represent the same number. Each pie consists of the numeral number, pumpkins to count, a dot representation of numbers (looks like a domino), and a tall mark representation of the number.

For example, there are 5 tally marks on the slice above which means the same as a number 5.

HINT: This activity is easier if you only give your students two pies to put together at a time. Make it more difficult by giving them up to 10 pumpkin pies to complete at one time.
