Why not give your students important practice with addition while celebrating the start of school or the arrival of Autumn?
In this activity the students will complete adding questions and then color their answer with a corresponding color. It is like a color by numbers only using addition and a 100s chart.
This bundle comes with four different addition sheets making it useful for students of varying ability levels:
1) Addition questions that do not require regrouping (e.g. 15+31) which are written vertically.
2) Addition questions that do not require regrouping which are written horizontally (to encourage mental math).
3) Addition questions that do require regrouping (e.g. 46+29) which are written vertically.
4) Addition 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 11x17 sheets. These are a nice option as your students only have to handle one piece of paper. Please visit my store to get that file as well as see other Math Mystery pictures for many different themes, seasons, & holidays.
Finally, I also have apple mystery sheets for place value & subtraction 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.
