This product is great for math centers.
Engage your students in practical math lessons using objects and pictures to understand the concept of addition and subtraction.
20 Addition sums with yellow circles (representing counters)
20 Addition sums without counters above the numbers
20 Subtraction sums with yellow circles (representing counters)
20 Subtraction sums without counters above the numbers
Large counters template
Five Frame template
I suggest all the above should be cut apart and laminated for write and wipe tasks.
The students can copy the sums out into their math workbooks as a permanent record for assessment.
After laminating the above contents of this product, the students can practice addition and subtraction tasks.
Differentiation: The sums are differentiated in that the more able student can complete the addition and subtraction without the counters above the numbers. They have the option and using the Five Frame template to see what happens when you add and subtract. Please see illustrations.
For students that need support there are addition and subtraction sums with yellow counters above the numbers so that the student can add up the dots or cross off if they are doing subtraction.
For visual learners - use the five frame for addition and subtraction.
More focused learning: Students can recreate the addition and subtraction sums using the five frame. E.g.:
- Place the empty five frame above the addition card they are working out e.g. 3 + 1 This addition sum would have the yellow and blue dots above the numerals.
- Choose two color counters for addition and place the same pattern of dots on the five frame
- Student then adds up the counters.
Subtraction - One color is used
- Place the empty five frame above the subtraction sum card e.g. 5 - 2 =
- Place the counters on the five frame as on the subtraction card
- Tell the student to remove the same number of counters i.e. 2 from the five frame to obtain the answer.
I have included Teacher Notes and Illustration.
A great way to teach addition and subtraction within 5.
