‘Tis the season for Santa Claus, jingle bells and sweet treats. I love it! This go-to Christmas Activity Pack includes 23 elf-approved math and literacy activities bundled together in one easy instant download. It’s perfect for Pre-K and Kindergarten Christmas centers.
Literacy Christmas Centers
To start, kids work on upper and lowercase letter recognition by coloring each letter on their record sheet to match the Christmas light.
Next, students practice writing the letters C, E, O, R, S and T with a Christmas version of our popular Handwriting Activity Sheets.
Kids have fun playing Bingo (a Christmas-must) with a class set of 28 game boards. Such a motivating way to work on recognizing Christmas words.
Next up in the Christmas centers, readers use the little reader book to work on prints of concept including reading left to right, pointing underneath each word as they go along, using picture clues to figure out the words on a page and more.
And speaking of new readers, children work on rhyming with a festive batch of clip cards. Star-car. It’s a rhyme!
Then they focus on one sight word at a time with an editable maze. You can type in one word for your struggling readers and a completely different word for kiddos who are ready for more challenge!
Math Christmas Centers
On the math side of things, kiddos practice AB, ABC and ABB patterns with some colorful candy canes.
Then they work on number recognition and counting with festive counting cards. (How cute are those reindeer?!)
Little elves practice ten frames, adding on and counting as they race to 20.
Then they strengthen their number recognition, number concept and counting with some fun gingerbread ten frames.
Students develop shape recognition and graphing skills with a simple spin and graph game.
And finally, they roll their way to a Christmas tree – practicing addition, number recognition and shapes along they way.
