New Pages and a Free Santa Game


They are calling for snow tonight! We don't get a lot of that here in Georgia. It sure makes it feel like Christmas when we do get some. Even without the snow, I've been thinking about all things Christmas.

I made another Christmas freebie to share with ya'll. Santa Cover Up is played just like the Gingerbread Cover Up I shared the other day. In case you missed that post, you can find  Gingerbread Cover Up here.

Click the picture to get it.

You will need to provide the kids with something to cover up the reindeer on the board. It could be just about anything. You could use colored math counters or mini-erasers. The players take turns rolling the dice and adding them up. The player covers up the sum with his or her chip and records the problem on the recording sheet (if you want). When all sums are covered up, the player with the most chips on the board wins.The board game, dice templates, and recording sheet are included. I hope your students enjoy it.

Also, I wanted to point out that I am working on organizing all of the printables I make on pages organized by subject area. The pages have pictures of each printable and links to find them. My goal is to make it easier for you to find printables you might want to use.

Some of my printables are on Google Docs, but most of my printables are listed on Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook. Both sites require you to create a log in, but it is free to create a log in. Most of my printables are free and any that are not are clearly marked. Please check out the pages. You can find them at the top of the blog below the header.

I hope you enjoy Santa Cover Up and the other freebies on this blog. If you enjoy please leave a comment and consider following the blog if you don't already. I LOVE comments and followers. Thanks!

North Pole Breakfast & a Freebie

Yesterday was a great day. Our elves returned from the North Pole and we had our North Pole breakfast. Of course when my mom and I were setting up for the breakfast we could not find the elf from last year. So a late night trip to Target was required. In the morning my daughter saw her stocking in the ornament box and said maybe Santa left something for me in my stocking too. Guess what? The missing elf was there. We told her the elfs must have been playing hide and seek when she woke up and were frozen that way. She was thrilled that Santa sent two elves.

It was wonderful to see my little girl smile and her enthusiasm was contagious. We also got her pictures with Santa done yesterday. My mom was a great help in making it possible to find some time to enjoy the season and make some memories. Moms rock!

Here are the pictures of our special breakfast.

        

    

I also had a request for another version of the Sleigh Race game. You can find the original post, game, and directions here. This version could be played in any subject. If you have an idea for how you are going to use it I would love for you to leave a comment sharing your idea. I always love reading your comments. Just click on the picture to grab the game.

Sleigh Race


As always life is keeping me busy. So, today's post will be short and sweet. I created a game to practice addition. In order to play it each player needs two dice and something to color with. It is a partner game and each pair of partners will need a copy of the game. The directions are on the game. It is in black and white for easy copying. The only thing I ask is that if you download it please leave a comment and consider following the blog if you don't already. I LOVE comments & followers. Thanks!


One of the comments asked for a version of this game with no directions and four sleighs. I have created that version and shared it in my next post. Click here for it.
