Holiday Math Stations

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving break! I have so much to be thankful for- a fantastic family, good health, a great job, and awesome friends. It IS a wonderful life! I've been getting my holiday math stations up and running. Here is a peek at what we'll be doing for the next 3 weeks.

 This is an ordinal number matching activity. You can grab a copy by clicking on the picture above.
 Click HERE for the recording sheet for the ordinal numbers activity.

 This is the story mats I blogged about earlier. You can grab a copy and read all about them HERE.

 This is a form of the game BUMP by Shari Sloane. My kiddos need lots of practice with subtraction so I made it for subtraction. You use a wooden cubed marked 7-12 and a dot die 1-6. Subtract the smaller number from the bigger. Place your cube on the answer. If your partner's cube is already there you get to 'bump' them off. If your cube is already there, you place your cube on top and 'lock' that space in so no one else can bump you off. Play continues until all the spaces have been locked in. Winner is the player with the most spaces. My kids LOVE this game! Click on the picture below to grab a copy.

 This is Christmas graphing mats. The firsties count and graph all the reindeer. There are several different cards they can work on too.
 This one is called Christmas counting mats. I just copied and pasted the same clipart over and over onto a card. The kiddos count how many objects are on the card and record it. Some use chips to cover the picture to keep track of their counting.
This is a very simple game called Roll a Christmas Tree. It's an addition practice game. Each student has their own tree. They take turns rolling 2 dice, adding, and then covering the answer on their own tree. The first player to cover his tree WINS! Click on the picture below to grab a copy. 
I hope you have found something you can use! Have a great weekend.
