by Exceptional Kinders
Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade

Decorate the Christmas Tree! Math Game Freebie

This is a 2 player game. Each player takes a game board (a Christmas Tree). 1, 2, or 3 dice are needed for this game. For younger students, roll one die and place the correct number of ornaments on their game board. Counters for counting my 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s are included.
Older students can roll 2 or 3 die and add the numbers together to get the number of ornaments they should take. When all of the ornaments are gone, the students count the ones on their game board. The player with the most ornaments wins. Directions for a subtraction game are also included.
