Christmas music is playing all around, Thanksgiving break is coming to a close, and you know what that means – winter break is almost here! Typically, we head back to school for just a few weeks in December before we have a break for Christmas and New Year’s. So now is the time I usually get out my fun and festive holiday learning activities (and hope the kids aren’t too distracted, wild, and crazy as Christmas gets ever closer!) These Christmas Math and Literacy Centers for pre-k and kindergarten students are an awesome way to work on letters, sounds, sight words, number order, addition, subtraction, and more in those weeks leading up to Christmas!
(Need something “non-Santa” for the holidays in your school? We’ve got you covered with our fun and festive Gingerbread Activities and Centers Here.)
