So blessed to part of this helpful linky for busy holiday teachers, as well as often busy, excited students.
Here is my best resource for this time of year, hands-down; it’s engaging, real, incorporates math and did I say it’s engaging, it’s super engaging!
This resource is completing ready to go (color or black & white). It comes with a Holiday Party Planning Catalog, for decorations, food, and party favors.
It’s also differentiated for different levels and interest. Students can make a shopping list and choose the items the class needs for a party, while making sure they get enough for everyone. Or, the catalog includes prices so others can be working on the budget. For your early finishers or advanced learners, they can create their own budget and party.
Give it a try, and you will have a solid week of math time holiday fun! Also be sure to check out these other awesome ideas!
