Young learners will spin, identify a number and place that amount of items on their sheets. As children pick up and place each item, encourage them to say its number name (one, two, etc.). Older children may fill all three lines, while younger ones may only complete the first or second. Once finished, have students count all of the items on their sheets.

CHRISTMAS ROLL AND COVER SHEETS (COLOR 4/B&W 4)

Christmas Roll & Cover

Supply a small manipulative such as mini erasers for students to use as markers. For individual use, have the child roll the die, count the dots (or recognize the “set” of dots), and find and cover the corresponding number on the sheet. Repeat until all of the numerals are covered. In small group, give each child a sheet and have them take turns rolling the die. The first person to cover all of their numbers wins. Trade cards and play again!


CHRISTMAS TREE NUMBER QUANTITY TASK CARDS (COLOR 10/B&W 10)

Older children can use this activity to practice set recognition.

To extend this activity, ask your learners to examine and compare the number sets of trees. Ask, “Which set has more ornaments? Which set has less?” when showing 2 sets. Remind children that the world less means not as many.
