Number Ladders are fun! They teach counting money, number sense, and adding/subtracting money amounts. A great math center for all students in the classroom!
Start at the bottom of the ladder and move up adding or subtracting money amounts students write the sum or the difference on each step. They must be at a certain number when they reach the top of the ladder!
Also added is a challenge, Reverse Number Ladders! Students see the money amounts going up the ladder and they have to decide if it is adding or subtracting and how much it's adding or subtracting.
I love this! Similar to Word Ladders, which I also love :-) I dohave to admit, it is alittle difficult for beginning 3rd graders. I wish you had a few ladders that were less difficult to ease them into the activity.
