Christmas Roll, Say, Keep
This is a number recognition (0 – 20) and a number word (zero – ten) game. It can be used in small groups, math stations, guided math group, or math centers. Use the set of numbers or the set of number word cards. You can also use both sets together. You can also just use numbers 0 – 10 or cards 11 – 20. It is great for differentiation. I print 3 of each page if I am just using 1 set of cards so that the children see the number or word 3 times. I also put each special card in at least 2 times. My kids love these cards.
Oh My! No toys! Give a card to all girls and boys!
Santa is STUCK! Miss a turn. Bad Luck!
Santa has toys! Take a card from all girls and boys!
Roll twice! Santa says you have been nice!
Place an equal amount of cards in each section. I usually put 6 cards in each section. Mix the special cards in with the number cards or word cards. The children take turns rolling a dice to determine which pile they should take the card from. They will say the number or read the word and keep it. If they can’t, they leave it in the pile. If they draw a special card, they do as it says. The child with the most cards after all the cards are taken is the winner.
