Math Centers for Christmas!
Students match the correct number of candies as the number on Santa’s beard. You could also use real peppermint candies.
As a small or whole group or with cooperative pairs, give the students sentences. Ex: Santa has 3 cookies. The students put three cookies on their mat. Santa ate two of them,(students take two off) how many cookies does he have left?
Students make their own patterns. Use sentence strips for students to paste patterns and for you to display.
