PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These Christmas Math Centers Subtraction Tree Puzzles make it quick and easy for teachers to provide hands on activities that meet the needs of all students! All three puzzles are engaging and fun!

Want to save some money AND have subtraction math center puzzles for the entire school year? Check out this bundle!

Let your students practice their subbtraction facts with these fun Tree Shaped Puzzles. They are perfect for winter and Christmas math centers! Each of the three puzzles will have students match 22 different subtraction problems within 20.

Want even more puzzles like these? Check out this addition set, this division set, or this multiplication set!

This will help address Common Core State Standards 1.OA.C.6 and 2.OA.B.2.

These puzzles are meant to be somewhat of a challenge. Students will have to keep in mind the shape of the tree. The four inside pieces will be the most challenging. Tell students to rotate them around until they fit. This is where their critical thinking skills will come into play!

Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the number of copies you need. (I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them.) I have used these as individual work, partner work, and small group work. They also work well for students who finish early or for use during center time. Cut the puzzles out and put them into plastic baggies for students’ use. I put each set in its own plastic baggie. Then I put all of these baggies and one original sheet in a manila envelope with the name of the activity on the front. This way I have the answer key and all materials readily available.
 
Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up puzzle sheet. Tell them they need to put the tree puzzle back together. The first time you have the students complete one of these. You can also give them the hint (because I have found some do not figure this out!) that the tree needs to be fully formed when they are done.
 
Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student’s completed work, keep an original copy of the puzzle sheet they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the shape is correct and that all the center pieces are in the correct order.

These Christmas Math Centers Subtraction Tree Puzzles are great for math centers, review, early and fast finishers, enrichment, GATE (gifted and talented education), and critical thinking skills. Students with special needs also do well with these once they understand the concept. Any student that needs a lesson in perseverance will benefit from these puzzles. With this fun game format your students will stay engaged while practicing necessary skills!

Just print and quickly cut on the lines and you have instant Christmas math centers that make skill practice fun and engaging. HoJoTree
