What educators are saying

This was a great resource for my Math Enrichment students to review important math skills at Christmas time.
Super agradecida del recurso para el desarrollo del estándar de numeración y operación, así como las destrezas motoras y la apreciación del arte.


Create your own CHRISTMAS TREE ACTIVITIES with this great tree shaped puzzle. This EDITABLE resource allows you to cover ANY topic you'd like. Students will then have to put the 16 piece tree together by matching your 22 different problems and solutions.

You get one puzzle in this download. It is an editable puzzle with 16 pieces. You will make the 22 problems to fit the skill/s your students need to focus on. You can keep changing the problems to use this puzzle over and over again.

You also get a NO PREP puzzle option. I use the Find/Replace function and change them from 1 A, 1 Q, 2 A, 2 Q, 3 A, 3 Q, etc. 

There is a puzzle template with the actual puzzle pieces so students can put their pieces over the top OR a blank outline as a guide, but not direct help. Use these for students who need a bit more support with the puzzle shape.

Use these puzzles anytime you need a fun activity - particularly for Christmas or anytime you want some Christmas tree fun.

Students with special needs also do well with these once they understand the concept. With this fun game format your students will stay engaged while practicing necessary addition skills!

These puzzles are meant to be somewhat of a challenge - which is perfect to promote a growth mindset. Students will have to keep in mind the shape of the Christmas tree and persevere if the task seems challenging. Tell students to rotate the pieces around and analyze what they can do differently until they fit. This is where their critical thinking and 21st Century skills will come into play!

Just print and quickly cut on the lines and you have an instant Christmas tree activity that makes skill practice fun and engaging. If you have some extra time, let your students decorate the finished tree. These colored masterpieces can then be used as artwork for the classroom, to help decorate a bulletin board, or be hung in the hallway to add some festive art flair. (And no administrator complaints since it's an academic activity!) Give them a try with your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade students.

Homeschool Families: You're going to love these puzzles as a last minute resource! The next time you have a crazy hectic home school day - grab, download, type, and go! You'll get your sanity back, fit in some academic work, AND have fun at the same time.

The answer key is made by YOU! Print two copies of your final puzzle - one for your student to cut up and put together and another one to keep in its full shape to use as an answer key. This way you can ensure all the numbers, words, or letters are in the correct order and that the shape is fully formed. HOJOCHRISTMAS
