Start out introducing addends and sums with the colorful fall anchor chart. Then have kids color a fall picture and add a two digit addend. Use the pictures for a whole group activity. Call 3 students to the front with their pictures and others add the 3 addends to find the sum. Then move on to the task cards.
These task cards are easy to prepare and use in a math center.
Kids will be adding 3 two digit addends using mental math.
Just copy, lamiante, and cut out all the pieces and the center will be ready for a fall day! There are 20 cards in the center.
A student answer sheet and an answer key are included for the center. Colorful fall leaves are used for the problems.
I have also included 2 worksheets with answer keys.
There is also a cut and paste activity just for fun and a challenge worksheet that will get kids creating their own math problems to equal a given sum.
