Where to use These Christmas Color by Number Worksheets

Clearly, color by number worksheets are easy to prep, too. So, where can you use the "easy prep" Christmas color by number worksheets? Well, to each their own, but I will provide a few ideas. 

  • Math Centers

  • Practice
  • Early Finishers
  • Homework
  • Rewards (trust me kiddos love them)
  • Intervention
  • Make-Up Work

Without a doubt, these worksheets work well in math centers and math rotations. The prep level is low and students can check them their selves with an answer key. 

In addition to math centers, these worksheets are GREAT for sub tubs. Each worksheet offers an engaging and exciting opportunity for students to enjoy themselves while their teacher is gone.

When students are good or they finish early, the winter multiplication color by number worksheets offer an incentive or reward for their AMAZING behavior.

Last, the Christmas multiplication color by number worksheets work great for practice and homework. Multiplication fluency is important and homework does not have to be monotonous and boring!

Version 1 includes:

  • Christmas Ornament

  • Presents for Christmas
  • Poinsettia
  • Snowman
  • Bell
  • Snowflake
  • Mistletoe

Version 2 includes:

  • Santa Claus (skin tone left blank for students)
  • Mrs. Claus (skin tone left blank for students)
  • Elf (skin tone left blank for students)

The difference between both... version 2 has more problems and less colors. Version 2 is also more bubbly and colorful. Your choice truly depends on the need for your classroom and personal preference.

United States with Capitals Task Cards

I remember when I was required to memorize the 50 U.S. states. I was in sixth grade. Our class did boring worksheets and had to practice memorizing the locations and capitals of each state. It was SO boring! Plus, I don't remember anything that I learned. 


The 50 US states task cards with QR codes.

Engage with QR Codes

Well, the fact that you are reading this article means you care enough not to inflict your students with the boredom I suffered. So if you are you searching for a fun and engaging United States Geography lesson for you class or homeschool, you came to the right post.

To make your students' learning more engaging and fun I have created fun task cards to help you students and children learn about the 50 U.S. States. The task cards have a significant QR code on each sending your student to an interactive website to learn more about each state. They can even check most of their answers on that site.

I don't think I need to stress how important it is not to bore your students. What are you waiting for? Grab these cards and add them to your curriculum today!

Task cards are a great way to reinforce and assess your students. With the addition of the QR codes, these task cards add an interactive quality to further engage your students. As teachers and homeschoolers we all know that interactive and engaging lessons are a must-have in our teaching. Students easily get bored, as did I like I mentioned before so we have to strive as teachers to find something that is interactive and engaging
