As I know how much you loved the Apple pack, I’m thrilled to release the Christmas preschool printable pack for you! It is packed full of more than 15 activities to support your preschooler or even kindergartener for several levels of learning. There are many ways that you can differentiate to fit the needs of your kids.
Here’s a quick look at the table of contents so that you can see what is included.
Pages 81-85: Tracing Cards
See, I told you it has a ton of stuff!!
Without further ado, let’s take a closer look!
First off, is the Christmas play dough scenery that I shared with you yesterday. You can get the scenery for free here, I have simply included it in this pack for convenience.
You can use the play dough set to work on language skills, counting, positional words and the very important, pretend play.
Clothespin cards for matching Christmas pictures
Matching is very important skill to learn. It seems simple on the surface, but noticing details in objects will actually help kids become better at math later on when they notice inconsistencies in patterns or errors in figuring a problem.
Clothespin cards for counting to 10
Christmas Tree Ornament counting activity
Finding the largest and the smallest
After you laminate these, you can put them on book rings to keep them contained. Then, the students can use a dry-erase crayon or marker to indicate which is largest/smallest as the cards indicate.
Puzzles for matching
2 Match It! games: Numbers 1-6 and picture matching
You can increase or decrease the level of difficulty of the games by changing the amount of cards you are finding matches for.
Line-up puzzles for counting to 5 and 10
To make it easy for beginners, give them one puzzle at a time. You can even print an extra copy, slide it into a page protector and have the students match the pieces to that. For more skilled kids, you can mix the puzzles together.
Students can find the missing numbers from 1-10 with these fun Christmas lights.
More than just a fun game, this helps students to build reasoning skills without even feeling like they are working.
I’ve included 3 variations to make differentiation easy. You can choose from tracing, writing or stamping. I like to place the pictures close to the floor, so that the kids have to stand up, bend down, sit down, lean over, etc. In other words, lots of good movement.
I’ve included 4 different types of patterns and follow-up pages for each one. AB, ABC, AABB, ABBA
