Holiday Math Centers

We have been working hard our Holiday Math Centers.  My students love these centers.  I think it is mainly because they are holiday themed.  I mean who doesn't love a little Santa mixed in with their learning?  I know I do!

Here are some of the centers we have been mastering:


We are doing a little non-standard unit measuring with teddy bear counters.


We are working hard on counting to 100 by 10's.  I think Heidisongs counting by 10's has helped tremendously!

 The always popular count and write the room.  My students love any center that involves a clipboard and getting out of their seat.  I try to do some sort of activity like this for both literacy and math.


I know that patterning isn't technically a common core standard, but it is a measure on our KIDS assessment that I am piloting so we make sure to cover patterning.  :)

Students love the roll and color games.  I love it too.  In this game they are using two dice.  Basically they are started addition, but they don't even realize it.  They just think they are playing a super fun game.

All of these centers came from my Holiday Math Centers Pack.  Click on the image to check it out on TpT.



It is also available in a bundle with my Holiday Literacy Centers.

  16. Amanda you are so clever! I never thought of a math write the room activity... I absolutely love it!!! My kiddos also love those type of roll the dice and color the number. I have been trying to brainstorm fun math activities and games that are independent since I no longer have my educational assistant during their math centers. Have anymore fabulous ideas feel free to throw them my way :)
