This activity makes a great math center or workstation. Students can complete the activity independently, in partner pairs or in small groups. This activity also works well as a guided math activity or as a take home activity. This game gives students an opportunity to practice early numeracy and number sense concepts. Students will get the opportunity to sort Christmas ornaments with a variety of number representations on them. They will sort ornaments that represent the numbers 1-10 using dice, tally marks, number words, dominoes, ten frames and base ten units.
To play, students place the Christmas tree sorting mats onto their work surface. They then sort each of the number representation ornaments onto the correct Christmas tree mat.
