Have a student struggling with basic math? Do they need an extra little help remembering how to add or subtract, or maybe all the problems on the page are overwhelming for them? This mat allows for some helpful tools to be right at the student's fingertips to help them move along while working on their addition and subtraction. Cut the hole out in the middle of the page and there is a small window for the student to view the problem they are working on rather than seeing all the problems at one and getting completely overwhelmed. Laminate for extra durability (just remember to re-cut the hole out!).
