Tree Trimming{Free Printable!}

I cannot tell y’all how excited I am about all of the fun & engaging printables I have coming your way over the next couple of weeks!  No lie, I am sitting here smiling about all of the fun that I’m anticipating! I spent the summer making some really fun activities that I can’t wait to use with my kids, and I hope that you are able to use them for some fun learning this Christmas season with your kiddos too.  To kick off the season, let’s trim the tree!Roll Write Count- Tree Trimming- Life with the HawleysHawley Homeschool
I am a big fan of having one activity that can be used to teach multiple objectives. It’s a big perk, if that activity will grow with my child & I can use it at multiple stages of cognitive development. And if it is seasonally exciting, well then I. Am. Sold. This is one of those activities, and I have it for you today FREE!  Let me share with you all of the ways we use this in our home.DSC_0142DSC_0145
First get the FREE download, print, & laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use Christmas light erasers, but you should use buttons, pom poms, beads, snowflakes, cotton balls, mittens, jingle bells, etc.

Roll. Use foam dice to roll a number in the top 2 boxes. If your child is not counting above 6 yet, you can use a single dice.
Add. Ask your child to count up the dots, or to add them together for a sum. If you’re past addition, try subtraction. Comparisons also work great here (write greater than or less than on the sheet, or “write the number of the dice with more dots”).
Write. Your child could write the sum as a digit or a word, both numbers presented on each dice, or trace the digit or word. We use dry erase markers since they erase well on the laminated material.
Count. Using manipulatives, get your child to count out the number that was presented on the dice.
Fun. Enjoy!!!!DSC_0139
If you think your little one would enjoy learning with this, get your copy here for free!
