These cute activities all created by Kristen Walsky go along with Unit 6 in a festive way! The peppermints "measure-mints" can also go along with the activity. Have students take turns tracing themselves on brown paper ( can design as gingerbread boys or girls) and then estimating and measuring their height with the peppermints. You can also enlarge or reduce the size of the mints to further extend the activity. I am thinking of even giving each group different size mints and then discussing the results.

This next activity is a holiday activity that practices math facts. You can never practice math facts enough in first grade.

Here is a skip counting/number pattern practice sheet: These would go with unit 7 (patterns), but I wanted to get them to you earlier since the month of December goes by so fast.
