Christmas Math & Reading Activities

The month of December is always crazy busy, and I’m totally one to just embrace the chaos! Students are excited. The holidays are almost here (not to mention a two-week winter break)! That’s why I love integrating Christmas math & reading activities in the classroom.

My Favorite Christmas Math & Reading Activities

Today I’m sharing with you some of my favorite Christmas math & reading activities that I love using in the classroom! You’ll even find some of them that are completely FREE!!

Christmas Main Idea & Details

I review main idea and details ALL THE TIME in the classroom, so I love adding these holiday activities to reinforce the skill.

In this Build a Paragraph activity, there are 4 sentences mixed up (1 main idea/topic sentence & 3 supporting detail sentences). Students work together to build a paragraph with the main idea sentence coming first.

I have a whole pack filled with Christmas main idea activities that you can find here! Did you know I also have a whole blog post about teaching main idea? Head here to read it!

Christmas Math Puzzles

Students love, love, LOVE these fun math puzzles, and they’re perfect to add to your holiday math centers! Plus, they include a ton of different skills!

To complete these puzzles, students solve various problems on the puzzle mat. When they know the answer, they find the matching puzzle piece and place it on the mat. Teachers can print extra puzzle mats to use as recording sheets for students to show their work!

Plus, they are perfect for reviewing math and reading skills including: addition, subtraction, synonyms, B-M-E, and more.
