Bring new life to multiplication and division word problems with this Common Core Christmas-Themed "Math-tivity" set. If your students are new to this standard, this packet will be a great introduction for them. If they have been studying the standard (like my students) throughout the year, these activities will reinforce their understanding.
This Christmas-themed packet includes:
1. The standard, along with original “I Can” statements. Note that this standard includes a lot of complex information. I have worded the statements to include strategies your students can use to truly comprehend all aspects of the standard. Strategies include Christmas-themed examples. Ask children to glue these in their math notebooks, or work together to generate a similar version based on strategies your students have studied.
2. Three Christmas ornament story problem flap-tivities with blanks for answers. One is includes multiplication problems, one focuses on division problems, and one includes a mixture.
3. Three identical ornaments that include answer keys. Direct children to cut the flaps in the blank versions and glue them on top of the answer keys. Next, choose to glue the entire creations into interactive notebooks, or use them during center time.
4. A "Think Sheet" (including a sample) that guides children to write down the problem, draw a diagram, write down the equation including a letter or symbol for the unknown number, and write the answer in a complete sentence.
5. Christmas-themed manipulatives to help make multiplication problems comprehensible for all students (choose from full-color or black-and-white).
