As your students are getting familar with addition and subtraction, its important that they become familiar with the plus and minus sign to easily decide what a problem is asking them to do. This craft is a fun way to practice that!
First, I introduced Gus the Plus and Linus the Minus and we sorted problems whole group by their signs. Then, students made their own sorts. I had students sort already solved problems, but you also have the option to have students solve the problems and then sort them.
