If you like my Addition & Subtraction Math Story Mats, you will LOVE these SEASONAL Math Mats! They make integrating holiday fun with math instruction so easy!

Introduce addition and subtraction to your early learners using these math story mats during small group instruction, and then have students use them for independent practice as a math center. Either way, math story mats are the perfect resource for fostering creative and critical problem solving skills as well as developing language skills.

This product includes:
• 14 engaging scenes that set the context for a math story (beginning word problem)
• 14 scenes including a ten frame.
• 16 sets of 20 coordinating counters (two types of objects, 10 each)
• 11 word problem structures per mat for a total of 154 word problem scenarios! (includes join, separate, compare as well as various unknowns)
• 8 choices of recording sheets (for addition and subtraction, using the terms “equation” or “number sentence”)
• 6 choices of number bond work mats (different positions to avoid students over-generalizing) with a number line at the top for reference.
• Teacher rubric for formative assessment to inform instruction
• Student rubric for self-assessment, and to help students reflect on math goals

Includes 14 seasonal, holiday and thematic scenes:
