What a perfect way to celebrate the Christmas holiday! This activity packet is full of interactive games your students will love playing, and not even know they are practicing critical skills when becoming successful mathematicians!
Included in this unit are 15 games that are all interactive. There are both dice and spinner games included, as well as one mental math game. More specifically, this unit included the following games:
~Elf Add 10; There's a playing mat with numbers. Students must roll one dice, add 10, and look for that sum on their mats. They cover the numbers and the first to cover their boards is the winner.
~Sittin' by the Fireplace; This games asks the kids to fill in a table with a "rule", such as add 5 or add 7. Students roll a dice and then use that number with the given rules.
~Dice in the Middle; Students are to roll two dice and make a two digit number with what they rolled. They then have to write the numbers before and after their rolled two-digit number.
~Roll to Make 20; Students have a twenty frame and a blank number sentence that equals twenty. They roll one dice, write that number in the equation, and then have to determine the missing addend. They also have to fill in the twenty frame to show their work.
~Here Comes Santa Claus; Students roll two dice and add 2. They look for their new sum on the board and cross off the number if they have it. The first player to cover all their numbers is the winner.
~Even or Odd? Students roll two dice and add to find the sum. They look on their board to see if they have the number. If so, they can take a even/odd card if it is applicable to their number. The student with the most cards at the end is the winner. This game features a real photo of Santa and his reindeer that the students will just LOVE!
~Sweet Dreams; Students roll two dice and add one to find the sum. If the number is on their boards they can cover it or cross it off. The first person to cover their board is the winner.
~Just Elfin' Around; Students have an elf number line and presents to go under each number. They roll two dice and take away the present with the number they rolled. The winner is the first person to remove all their present cards.
~I Have It! Students roll one dice and look through the missing addend cards. If their rolled number makes one of the number sentences correct, they may have the card. The winner is the person with the most cards at the end.
~Ho, Ho, Ho Wheel; Students have a hundreds or hundred and twenty chart. They spin the spinners and it will give them a number and place value to color in on their board. The first person to color in their chart is the winner.
~Santa Time; Students spin the time wheel and if they have that card with a matching clock, they keep the card. Both digital and analog clocks are featured in this game and only to the hour times are included.
~Santa's Race to a Hundred; Students spin the wheel and color in that number of spaces on their chart. The first person to color in all their spaces is the winner.
~Reindeer Games; This game features real photos of reindeer! Students spin three spinners which will create a number sentence. If they have the answer on their reindeer board they may cover it. The first person to cover all their numbers is the winner.
~Greater or Less Than; Students roll the spinners and create two 2-digit numbers. They then have to determine if the number sentence is greater or less than and write that symbol on their recording sheet.
As you can see, there are a multitude of games and activities to keep your kiddos busy and engaged this Christmas season. All the games include a follow up enrichment or recording sheet! I made the games in different levels so if you have Kinders they can still play at their levels, as well as Firsties.
Skills practiced in this activity packet include place value, time, greater/less than, hundred chart work, addition, subtraction, missing addends, and so much more! I urge you to download the preview to get a glimpse at every page in this fun packet that you'll receive.
Merry Xmas to You and Yours,
