Christmas Math Work Stations

I've had some requests for a post about my Christmas math work stations.  I started introducing them to the students today and let me tell you they are some EXCITED!!
Included are 10 ready to use stations.  Each station includes an I can... card which makes it easy for students to get started when they get to their station.  Some activities have recording sheets and include two I can... cards so you can choose to use the recording sheet or not.  I am on a photocopy 'budget' so need to be careful how many copies I make.
Here's a peek at what's included:
 There are a variety of skills covered including:
1. Base 10 Match
2. Light Bulb Spin and Graph
3. Greatest / Least Number
4. Ten Frame plus 10
5. 3 Dice Cover Up
6. Number words to 20
7. Tens and Ones
8. Skip Counting by 2's, 5's and 10's
9. Greatest Number Game
10. Light Bulb Patterns
Here's a few pictures from today:

You can find this holiday unit at my TPT store by clicking here.   As you know I LOVE giving copies of my products away. I am heading out for a few hours. When I return I will randomly choose 2 followers who leave a comment on this post to receive a copy.
I am currently working on my math stations for January.  Are there any special skills that you would like to see covered?  If so, I'd love to hear your ideas :)


  1. Your December Math stations look awesome! I love that you cover such a variety of skills. For January, maybe you could do some Ten Frame addition with penguins or snowflakes or some ordering/comparing numbers with some snowmen or polar bear clip art. :)

    1. Thanks for the great ideas :) Check your inbox :-)

    2. OOOOOHHHH...thank you so much! It's even better than I imagined! I can't wait to print & laminate so I can start using them right after the Thanksgiving break. Thank you, Thank you! :)

  2. I am loving this unit:) you r so creative! I have become quite addicted to your blog and find myself checking several times a day to see what new unit you have come up with:) I teach special education to k-2 and need lots of hands on manipulatives:) I am having a bit if trouble signing on with my own blog but my email is dcollins@ if I am so lucky to be picked:) thanks again!

    1. You're too sweet! Please check your inbox for a message I just sent you. It explains trouble I had sending this unit to you. Let me know if the second attempt was successful :)

    2. it worked great! Thanks soooo much:)

  3. Wow, your math stations are very well done. I love the way you present the ten more. I've seen that become so procedural, and your activity is just was I was looking for. Love it!!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by ladies! I'm back and decided that rolling a dice would be a fair way to choose tonight. I rolled a 2 then a 1. So, I'll be sending a copy along shortly to the first 2 commenters.
    Keep stopping by ladies - I'll be posting about (and giving away) other units soon :)
