Ghost Blaster II: making 10

Ghost Blaster II would make a fantastic game for any 1st Class pupil to play over Mid-term. It would also be a great warm-up game on the first day back after Mid-term. Ghost Blaster allows you to revise adding numbers 0-10 which was covered in Senior Infants. The curriculum links are shown here:

Strand: Analysis of Number              Units:  Combining & Numeration

  • explore the components of number, 1-10
  • solve simple oral and pictorial problems, 0-10

I love maths games that allow the teacher/parent to select exactly what numbers are being explored. It is great to be in control and know that children are exploring exactly what they need to explore. No sums that are outside of the curriculum remit will appear. Ghost Blaster ll does not disappoint in this regard. You are in complete control.

Simply type in your selected number in the “practice the sums of…” box. I selected 10 but you could choose any number family you want from 0-10.

You can select either 1 or 2 players. Imagine the fun of 2 children or two teams playing against each other in a classroom! It would be tonnes of fun!

A pair of ghosts will briefly flash up on the screen. You need to be fast to play Ghost Blaster II !!! Click “z” on your keyboard if the sum of the two ghosts makes your choosen number. It’s a simple as that 😉
