Today I am bringing you a super simple and fun Gingerbread Man Kindergarten Math Facts activity. I created a four page printable that you can use and print for your home or classroom.
I created this activity to be used with multiple ages and math skills. I created a page with 0+0 to 0+11 math facts. I also created a 1+1 to 1+12 math facts page. Then for the answers I created two pages of gingerbread men with just numbers on their bellies. These pages can be printed on cardstock and laminated or used for the younger children to practice number recognition.
Lil’ Red helped me with this activity while Big Red was still asleep! We tried a variety of manipulatives on the pages. I grabbed a bag of small foam numbers but we didn’t have all of the numbers on the page which frustrated Lil’ Red.
I went back into my numbers box and grabbed out some plastic poker chips I had purchased a decade ago while I worked in a daycare. I was able to quickly write the numbers needed on the chips with a sharpie marker!
Lastly I grabbed our magnetic gingerbread men that I found last year on clearance at Dollar General. I am hoping to find another 2-3 packs for a more complete set of math facts activities since these little guys are so cute and fun to use.

These are cute! I like the idea of having a manipulative to use with them.

This is precious. I am going to give it a try with my littles. I saw this at the Welcome Home Wednesday. I would love for you to show off here as well http://faithfilledparenting.com/2015/12/faith-filled-parenting-linkup-party-4/

As a retired teacher and now a private tutor, this idea is great as so many kids need a manipulative. I have a second grader at the moment who may benefit from this for for learning the larger facts and eventually multiplication later in this school year.
May your Christmas be filled with the joys of our Lord, ~ linda
This is so cute. It’s fun to mix up their math manipulatives to make it fun!
Yes, and both my 2 year old and 5 year old can use the same Math packet!
