Subtracting With Santa
Are you looking for a stocking or Santa-themed activity that involves math skills? 5 Little Stockings, may be just what you're searching for.
Children will enjoy improving their cutting skills by "...hanging their stocking on the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon will be there!"
This creative booklet is an opportunity to combine math skills with an artistic flair. The fireplace "craftivity" that they create involves the different math shapes for a quick and easy review.
Children trace and write the numbers as they solve the simple equations and help Santa fill the stockings.
You can also review ordinal numbers as well. This is a terrific listening and following direction activity, or makes a nice whole-group or independent math center.
When everyone is done, read the booklet as a whole group and review concepts of print.
