Let's talk about your classroom in December. Are you ready? Trying to keep your students learning and focused with the craziness and anticipation of Christmas and vacation. It is hard to do. I've got a few products to make your life a little easier...Christmas themed educational activities so that they are learning but can still be excited about Christmas.
First up, task cards! These are easy to use and have so many possibilities. You can tape them up (with fun washi tape of course) around the room and have students work their way around the room solving the problems and writing their answers on the recording sheet provided. You could also set them out at a math (or literacy) center and have small groups work on them a few at a time.
My Christmas math task cards are designed for second grade and focus on: Expanded form, word form, place value, skip counting, addition and subtraction story problems, even & odd numbers, mental math with addition and subtraction up to 20, double digit addition and subtraction (no regrouping), time, and money.
Next up is Christmas Bingo. This is perfect for a holiday party or to use on the last day before break. It is also a great way to practice Christmas vocabulary words. This comes in color and in black and white and includes 30 different game boards so you can just print and use and it will naturally stagger the winners. You can use anything from math manipulatives, to Christmas erasers to scraps of paper to cover each square.
I also have a Christmas Spin and Add Bump. You play the exact same way, but students practice adding instead of multiplying.
You can click any of the pictures to get more information about each of these products or click HERE to find all of my Christmas products. Hopefully, they will save you some time and some sanity this December.
