Belated Freebie Friday: Holiday Magic Square

Sweet juniper!  I fell asleep at 8:30 last night and slept like a log.  Until 2:30 in the morning.  That's right, my body is used to a certain amount of sleep, so apparently that's all I get.  You can imagine how tired I am today, and of course I neglected to post my freebie for Freebie Friday because I was snoring away. Therefore this one is unofficial, since I didn't make it to the linky in time...

This week, I'm sharing a simple but fun puzzle.  I've always loved a good old Sudoku or Magic Square, so here's a holiday-themed one for you.  Add it to your math centers or use it as an early finisher activity--up to you.  I have a 3rd grader and a 5th grader at home, and they both loved it:

PS!  If you are as big a coffee addict as I am, head on over to Finding Joy in Sixth Grade and enter her giveaway.  Personally, the Starbucks card is my dream, but there's also a Target Gift Card and some other lovelies! Click on the button below to go there:

    1. Thanks Irene--anything to keep their minds on school right now (instead of gifts and vacation!).

  4. Hi Heather:

    Thanks so much for publicizing my giveaway! (That was so sweet!)

    I loved your magic square activity--and I can't wait to use it in my classroom this week. Thanks SO MUCH for sharing.

    Finally, if you're interested, come over to Farley's blog, Oh Boy Forth Grade, to see about the Sandy Hook tribute tomorrow...
