Posters that can be laminated, or enlarged and laminated, and used year after year. These posters include addition and subtraction words; an "equals means the same as" poster; and plus and minus sign posters as well as one poster that combines the plus and minus sign with the many words often substituted for these signs.
Common Core Standards expect our students to understand many words--not on the Fry or Dolch lists--connected to or substituted for plus and minus signs. I created these posters (1) to put all these words and signs together in one place; (2) to separate addition and subtraction words and signs; and (3) to define equal and/or equals. I laminate the posters, hang them at my students' eye level, and include black and white copies in homework packets.
