Why not give your students important practice with take-aways while celebrating the start of school or the arrival of Autumn?
In this activity the students will complete minus questions and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using subtraction and a 100s chart.
This bundle comes with four different subtraction sheets making it useful for students of varying ability levels:
1) Minus questions that do not require regrouping (e.g. 37-42) which are written vertically.
2) Minus questions that do not require regrouping which are written horizontally (to encourage mental math).
3) Minus questions that do require regrouping (e.g. 92-37) which are written vertically.
4) Minus questions that do require regrouping which are written horizontally (to encourage mental math).
All 4 variation of this exercise come with an answer key.
The final image your students will create is a beautiful, red apple!
This file is also available as 8.5x11 sheets. If you are unable to print 11x17, these would be a much better option. In the 8.5x11 size the 100s chart and place value clue sheet are printed separately. Please visit my store to get that file.
Finally, I also have apple mystery sheets for place value and addition available in my store. This would be a great way to include multi-age and multi-ability classrooms. Everyone is working on the same image but solving problems at their level! Again it is available in my store.
