This Christmas Lights Addition Printable Math Worksheets set will most definitely be a hit with your students too! They will be so excited to do any kind of Christmas themed learning – it will be great!
Christmas Lights Addition comes with twenty addition mats, covering numbers 0-20, 4 light counter sheets, and an addition sentence recording sheet. It is recommended that you print the mats and counters on cardstock and laminate so you can truly make this an interactive center and also so it can last for years to come. Using printable math worksheets like these in your classroom is a fun way to include the holiday theme in learning.
Printable Math Worksheets: Using Christmas Lights Addition
Students will pick a mat of their choice. Using the counters they will figure out what the answer to the addition sentence is.
When students have figured out the answer, they will use a vis-a-vie marker to write the answer in the blank light. This is an excellent way for your students to also practice writing their numbers. Since these markers erase so easily, they can keep practicing until they get it correct.
Once students have finished their addition sentence, they will then write their sentence on the recording sheet as shown below. With this recording sheet, you can help them go back and fix any errors they made and easily show them mistakes. Having printable math worksheets to laminite will make it easy to review over and over again until the concepts are grasped.
If you have younger students that are not able to write their own sentences you can still have them complete the activity. I did the mats with my three year old and she had a blast.
She counted out Christmas lights for each number first and then went back and counted the numbers to get the total number. If she knew how to write the number, she wrote it on the light and if not, I wrote it. At the end of the day, you just want to be introducing them to the concept of addition even if they cannot complete the activity quite like a kindergarten or first-grade student.
