Polar Express Hot Cocoa Activity {Free Printable}

Life is captivating me so much right now.  I had all of these great plans for December around here but I have not been able to really sit down and write them all out. Life is just calling so loudly to me.  But I really wanted to get this last printable for the year out to you.  I made this activity to go alongside The Polar Express and all of the hot cocoa of the season.

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_0157
First get the FREE download, print, & laminate (or put into a page protector). We like to use white pom poms for marshmallows, actual mini marshmallows, & chocolate chips!

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_0159
If you think that your little one would enjoy learning with this, get your copy here for FREE!
