Santa's Reindeer Frames Math Center Activities Numbers 1 to 20

Just in time for your kiddos! Using Ten Frame sets are a great way to develop your students' number sense. They can also be used to develop students’ subitizing skills, the ability to “see how many instantly”. Santa's Reindeer Frames allows them to use '10' as a visual guide for greater numbers. It also helps them to engage with base ten and other number and operations skills (addition and subtraction) either independently or as a group. This set contains three Math center activities for your kid’s Christmas enjoyment"

Reindeer Ten Frames - Use these reindeer ten frames for matching up with the corresponding Santa Cards.

Reindeer cut-outs for building frames along with Santa Cards

Rudolph’s Shiny Red Nose Matching Cards also for building values for between 10 and 20.

A recording sheet is also included.

This set is available for purchase at my TPT and TN stores.

Homographs, Spelling and Meanings

Homographs are all about meanings! It is all about using the same word in different contexts. The picture above gives a great example of words and pictures used to convey messages in different contexts! The 'rock' has two meanings. Firstly, it is used to refer to the solid mass of minerals and secondly, it is an expression used to show admiration, gratitude or affection. In a similar manner the word 'rule' is used to mean to govern or have control over someone and  a strip of wood or metal that is used to measure lengths. So you see, it all depends on what you're talking about!

I created a set of dual picture cards that depict words that can be used in different contexts. Many of the 135 words that I chose can be used in more than two contexts, however, I only depicted two contexts per word. Your kids can use these picture cards to spark their writing both in vocabulary units and in creative writing. I also included two graphic organizers for extended practice.
