TEKS ALIGNED 3.4A and 3.5A!!!
I have found that my students need a lot of practice differentiating between when to add and when to subtract. This sort is a great activity to teach, scaffold, and assess your student's knowledge on choosing the correct operation. Plus, have them solve the problem too to practice their computation skills.
USE FOR GUIDED MATH-Use pre-cut cards at the teacher table or in a station for students to sort under the correct label and solve on a dry-erase board.
-Use this as an an independent activity/assessment where students cut and paste the cards under the correct operation label and solve them next to each problem!
