The week or days before Christmas break can be hectic in the classroom. Between school events and the students’ excitement, it is difficult to teach new skills during this time. For this reason, I choose to use this week to review all (or most) of the skills that we have learned so far in the year. To make things more interesting, the review has a holiday theme. This post will share the printables I use for one of my math review activities: a Christmas math review for 5th grade.
About the Christmas Math Review:
To be honest, we don’t always have a lot of time for cute interactive notebook templates and we definitely don’t have time to color them in. But the days leading up to Christmas break is a great excuse to slow down and let the students have a little break.
For this Christmas math review, I have interactive notebook templates with problems for the students to solve. After they have solved the problems and gotten them checked off (by me or using the included answer key), they can have a few minutes to color them in.
Here are some of the Christmas math review templates included:
This is a great review activity while you pull a small group of students to work through the same problems. This also makes a good activity to leave a substitute because it is a bit more time-consuming with the cutting and gluing.
What To Do With the Christmas Math Review Templates:
The students can glue the templates into their notebooks OR you can mix it up a bit more and have them glue them on to construction paper like the example shown from a previous review lesson. These make great interactive hallway displays!
