These number sense puzzles are a great way for students to practice identifying numbers in both numeral and word form within 20 in math. There are 10 puzzles included and every puzzle is in the shape of something Christmas related!
The cool thing about these puzzles is that I have included three versions of each puzzle. The first two puzzles for each item are already made for you. One puzzle will have students identify numbers and the other puzzle has students match the number to the word form for each Christmas item to help you differentiate in your classroom. Just print, cut, and you're ready to go!
The third puzzle is blank. Students are able to add their own numbers to each puzzle piece and then cut it out to play with. So really, you're getting 30 activities instead of ten!
Differentiate and give your students the puzzle that's appropriate for them. You can tell when you download the preview that some of these puzzles are easier than others--making it easy to fit everyone's needs in your classroom.
I have used these whole group, in small groups, with a partner, independently, have sent them home, and during math centers. My students LOVE these!
