Do your students struggle with word problems? Word problems with missing parts? Mine did, so I created this small group and center activity to practice solving word problems with missing subtrahends!
12 different word problem cards - one set in full color; one set with blackline
Recording sheet (black and white)
Part-Part-Whole work mats (two versions)
*All with a Spring/Bird theme* (no holiday references)
Print, laminate and cut the word problem cards and you are ready to go! You can keep all the cards at a center, post them around the room, work them out during whole group lessons, small group RtI or individual practice.
I print the work mat on colored card stock and either laminate or slip into a protective sleeve. Students can use manipulatives or dry erase markers to solve each problem. Then they write the equation and missing part the recording sheet.
All cards have equations within 20 and meet CCSS 1.OA.D.8 Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction
equation relating three whole numbers.
