Are your kiddos bananas over Pete the Cat? Then I think they'll like this puzzle game which comes in black and white so students can make their own, as well as one in color to use as an independent math center.
Students can simply color, cut and put their puzzle together, or they can pick a partner and take turns rolling a dice.
Whatever number they roll, they place that numbered piece on the matching numbered square on their puzzle grid. The first one to complete their puzzle is the winner.
Besides the black and white pattern for your students, I’ve also included a colorful template that you can use for an independent math center.
My students absolutely love the puzzle games, so if you're looking for a "sanity saver" before the holiday break, these provide a quick, easy, and educationally fun activity, which can be used as a sweet Thanksgiving card for parents too.
To extend the activity, have students glue their pieces to the puzzle grid as they play the game, then when done, write about the things that they are thankful for, or a note to parents of why they are thankful for them on the back of their completed puzzle.
This FREEBIE is part of my big Pete The Cat's Thanksgiving Packet. For your convenience, I've included a PREVIEW along with the free puzzle game.
