Christmas Math Centers Part 2



I am finally finished with my Christmas centers part 2 unit..

I really wanted to be finished with this weeks ago-but life got a little busy. But, if you still need some fun activities to do with your students- these are great!

They are on sale in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. You can click below to go see and also you can download the recording sheets I made to go along with them below too. The recording sheets are free.

So, let’s talk about what is included…

First is an activity that I had in my Thanksgiving Unit that got a lot of feedback. Students will cut and glue the letters out to spell the word Christmas.. then they will follow written directions to color using ordinal words.


The letters fit nicely on a sentence strip. I print off multiple copies of the coloring directions so each student in this center has their own copy.


Telling time match

I use a pocket chart with this activity but it can still be done on the floor or at a table.

Students match all three sets of cards..

Santa cards have the clock faces.

Rudolph cards have the analog times.

Elf cards have the word times.

Then my students will write the times that are on the Santa cards on their recording sheets.


Math Fact Families

When I was cutting these cards- I realized that 12 of these cards might be too much for my little ones to finish during our center time. I will have to see- so I might only use half or even 8 of the cards instead of the whole set.

Students have to write two addition and two subtraction facts using the numbers that are on the cards.


Greatest & Least Numbers

These numbers are a little tricky..

Students have to write the greatest and least number from each card. Or, you could have your students write all four numbers in order from least to greatest… Or, pick just the odd or even numbers and write them. The list is endless- but the recording sheet I made is for the least/greatest numbers.


This is an activity we have been practicing a lot lately.. where I ask my students “How much is….” and I give them a number of coin. Like.. How much is five dimes? They are getting pretty good at it. I will put the bucket of “play money” with this center if they need it to visualize the coins when counting. But, most of my kids can do them in their heads. These cards are dimes, nickels, and pennies!

  1. That CHRISTMAS with the ordinal numbers. Is that in a TpT packet?? Sorry...I wasn't sure what you were saying about that. But I love it!

  2. So cute! It's been added to my TPT Wishlist :)

    Two questions though...
    1. On the recording sheets for the fact families, it says to write 2 addition and 2 subtraction sentences... but there is only space for 4 addition sentences on the sheet.

    2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE your calendar card sets! I've downloaded them all for use in my future classroom. If you have a chance, could you make an "October" card to go along with the numbers?

    Love your blog!!
