Holiday Math Activities Your Students Will Love

Are you feeling the stress yet? This time of year can be crazy, to say the least. It's hard to prepare meaningful lessons and then actually get to teach them in between all of the holiday festivities and interruptions. It's always best to have a plan but remember, it's also good to be flexible. Bring a little holiday cheer to your math lessons with holiday math resources your students will love.  

These holiday math resources are effective and engaging, so the kids always love them. I like to take my "regular" lessons and add a little bit of holiday fun to them. This helps to tap into my kiddo's excitement and keep them focused during those last few crazy weeks of school before the holidays begin.  We need all the help we can get this time of year, so here's my gift to you... holiday math resources that will make your December math practice fun and exciting for your students. 

Number of the Day

If you've been around for a little while you have probably noticed my love for Number of the Day activities. These holiday math activities featuring the number of the day are the perfect way to develop and reinforce number sense in your classroom. 

Students are provided opportunities to recognize numbers, write numbers, and apply numbers with holiday-themed worksheets they love to complete. You can also be sure all of your math standards are being met with these holiday math activities. 

You can incorporate number of the day activities into your daily routine in several different ways. 

One of my favorite ways to do this is with morning work. At the beginning of the year, I establish a routine with my students. They come in, unpack, and immediately get out their Number of the Day folder and get busy.  

We start our morning by completing the worksheet together as a class. I like to ask for student volunteers to help solve the problems or write the numbers on the whiteboard. 

Because we are reviewing information, this is a great opportunity for me to do a quick informal assessment of my students. This helps me know which skills I need to reteach and when it's time to move on to a new skill. I can also use the information to set up small group practice for students if I need to. 

If you are excited to try out some amazing December Number of the Day activities, be sure to visit my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You will love the ease of these no-prep printable worksheets that are also available in digital form! They are great for morning work or math centers. Your kiddos will love the holiday themes sprinkled throughout the activities.
