This fun and differentiated JAM-PACKED unit is filled with everything you need to teach 4 standards/concepts: true or false with subtraction equations, missing subtrahends/minuends, choosing an operation (add or subtract), and balancing equations.

Everything you need to print and go to teach these concepts to a variety of learners - it will save you so much time! Plus, your students will be learning and having fun!

Get this in the First Grade Math Units 1-9 BUNDLE to save a ton!

If you're not familiar with my math units, they are FILLED with fun differentiated worksheets and activities. To see a ton of pictures of them and ideas for how to use them (and teach the concepts), click on the math concept you want to see on this page of my blog:

Each of the 4 concepts in this unit comes with (at least):

- FOUR differentiated practice worksheets (2 on level, 1 below level, 1 above level) - each worksheet has a star with a letter inside it in the corner for you to easily identify its level when organizing/copying

- A fun cut and paste activity worksheet

- An "I Can" student friendly poster and a "Students will be able to" poster

- A fun and hands-on math station that includes all materials, a student-friendly directions page, and a recording sheet. Some concepts may also come with a teacher directions sheet for differentiation directions/tips or an extra set for extra practice.

So multiply that by 4 concepts and that is what you will get! :)

At the end of the unit, there is a unit test that covers all of the concepts. I included 3 versions of the test so you can easily retest and/or give different tests to students to avoid copying.

**ADDED** 10 new pages and freshened up some of the fonts and clip art :) Simply re-download to grab the new pages if you already own this!
