Ho, Ho, Ho! Decomposing Santa is perfect for December in any primary classroom! Santa comes with a plate for cookies, a big mug of milk, and an assortment of colorful holiday cookies. You can "dip some cookies in milk" and "put some cookies on the plate" to make the perfect treat for Santa! I use him as part of my morning number routine, but he is also perfect for small group instruction and centers!
You will get 2 Santas and 2 sets of colorful cookies--one for basic operations and one for place value. This set also includes 27 printables to practice decomposing numbers, addition, subtraction, fact families through 10, and place value to 100. There are pages with given whole numbers and blank pages for students to build their own numbers. I like to slide these printables into a dry erase sleeve so little ones can build numbers again and again at math centers.
You will also receive a black and white version of both Santas and both sets of cookies. Your learners can decorate their Santa and cookies to build numbers at school or at home. You can also assemble the Santa and printable to make the perfect craftivity. This interactive activity is a perfect way to add some Christmas fun to your math plans!
