Lights, camera, action! Read the backstory that tells about the elves' strange behavior. It turns out that elves aren't perfect, and they have a tendency to be very playful and mischieveous. Students/children have an opportunity to "act" as an elf or Santa's helper for each word problem.
Minimal props are suggested. These items can usually be found around the house. No worries if you don't have access to all of the props you need-we have provided paper substitutes in the product.
I have bundled 2 of my prior products, Santa's Helpers Are Acting Out in Numbers Vol I Addition and Santa's Helpers Are Acting Out in Numbers Vol II Subtraction. They have been revised and added to as well.
All problems in this product involve basic addition and subtraction facts.
