Make Math FUN this Christmas!

The winter holiday season can be a special time of year, but also a busy time for many students and teachers.  

If you are like me, sometimes this comes at the heart of the year and with some students absent or distracted by the upcoming holiday, a fun activity is welcome in the classroom.  Reviewing previous topics or practicing current skills with these riddles can be helpful in your classroom at this busy time. (And sneak a little fun into the classroom)

Enjoy riddles like these...
What weighs two tons and pulls Santa's sleigh?
What did the Christmas tree say to the ornament?
Which elf was the best singer?
What is a reindeer's favorite instrument?
What does a gingerbread man put on his bed?
What do elves learn in school?
What do monkeys sing at Christmas?
And many more...

Engage your students with these Christmas Math riddles worksheets! I began creating math riddles to make math more fun in my own classroom. 

I love hearing my students giggle as they solve the riddle at the end of the worksheet. Students solve  problems, each problem has a letter assigned to it and the letters help to solve the riddle. It is a great way to combine fun and learning!
