Are you looking for some terrific ideas to help your students learn to add and subtract to 5? This packet includes 4 different game mats for addition and 4 more for subtraction. Themes include snowmen, gingerbread cookies, kids playing in the snow, and monkeys.
Simple word problems and addition and subtraction number sentences are included for use with the game mats. Also included are a variety of worksheet formats to encourage students to document their work. These formats include part-part-whole; combinations of 5, number sentences, and How Many are Left?
Banana counters are supplied for the monkey mat, but snowballs and buttons will need to be added for the other gameboards. I use pom poms for snowballs, but cotton balls will also work.
