Looking Ahead to December ( A Freebie for You)!

I am not usually one to rush the holidays, but I have seen, bought and downloaded so many wonderful Thanksgiving activities that I decided to look around Target and Dollar Tree to see if they had put out any neat Christmas things that I could use to make Christmas workstations. So far, the pickings are slim but I found some cute mini bows and I made a Presents game. I love these games, they can be used to add or subtract.  Each student will have 20 bows and a gameboard. To subtract place a bow on each present and roll to remove. For adding, place the bows on after a roll of the die.   Just download the gameboards, laminate them, use mini bows or you can even dye some bow tie macaroni to use as bows.  The students really love these games.

Common  Core Standards Correlation
K.OA.1/ 1.OA.1 Operations; Algebraic Thinking
Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understand subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
