Product Description
Teaching my kindergarteners how to add and subtract is my absolute favorite! They are always itching to do more after they learn. That's why I created these hands-on Addition and Subtraction Counting Mat Activities. I hope that you and your students enjoy them!!

What's Included
- 4 Addition Counting Mats in color and black and white
- 4 Subtraction Counting Mats in color and black and white
- Instruction pages for all activities

How They Work:
Depending on the counting mat, students will either use dice or cards to determine the number of objects they're adding or subtracting.
Next, they use math manipulative to represent the addition or subtraction problem.
Finally (again depending on the activity), students will write either the answer or the entire number sentence.

Students can work up to writing the whole number sentence
- Practice orally saying the number sentence with "Counting Cupcakes" and "Who Ate All the Candy?"
- Practice writing just the sum or difference with "How Many Popsicles?" and "Subtracting Sprinkles."
- Write the Whole Number Sentence with "Donut Delivery", "The Best Cookie", "Donut Eat Them All", "What's Left, Peppermint?"
