This is a free sample from my Christmas Subtraction Puzzles. This is one of the puzzles that comes out of a pack of ten! The candy cane FREEBIE is the simplest puzzle in the pack of ten.
These subtraction puzzles are a great way for students to practice basic subtraction facts within 10 in math. There are 10 puzzles included in the full product and every puzzle is in the shape of something Christmas related!
The cool thing about these puzzles is that I have included four version of each puzzle. The first two puzzles for each item are already made for you. There is an easy and a hard puzzle for each Christmas item to help you differentiate in your classroom. Just print, cut, and you're ready to go!
The second two puzzles are blank. Students are able to add their own addition facts to each puzzle piece and then cut it out to play with. So really, you're getting 40 activities instead of ten!
Differentiate and give your students the puzzle that's appropriate for them. You can tell when you download the preview that some of these puzzles are easier than others--making it easy to fit everyone's needs in your classroom.
I have used these whole group, in small groups, with a partner, independently, have sent them home, and during math centers. My students LOVE these!
Check out the preview to see six different ways to use these in your classroom!
