Are your students excited about Christmas?  My kids can hardly wait!  It has been all about reindeer, snow, and Christmas trees since Halloween.  So, I created these 3 Christmas Tree Roll & Cover Christmas Math Games to tie in our holiday conversations and excitement in our learning activities and math centers.  Roll and Cover Games are a fun, hands-on way to practice and reinforce basic math concepts.

You can use the colored versions of these fun, holiday games to differentiate your math centers or create activities for early finishers.  The black and white, reproducible versions can be used for morning work or homework.

Your students can play these 3 Christmas Tree Roll & Cover Games by themselves or with a partner.  To play with a partner, have each player use a different colored marker or crayon.  When the entire board is colored or covered, the person who colored or covered the most ornaments on the Christmas tree wins the game.

Have Fun and Happy Holidays!
