Math Skills Cover Ups can be used as formative assessments or incorporated into RTI protocols. Though these activities specifically target grade 2 math standards, they can be used as enrichment for first grade students or as remediation for third grade students. Math Skills Cover Ups can be another tool to help meet the needs of your students and differentiate their instruction. They can also be used as mini lessons for reinforcing or even introducing math skills.
This Basic Facts set of activities covers the skills of developing the meaning of addition using part-part-whole models, addition word problems, developing the meaning of subtraction visually and through missing addends and subtraction word problems.(Standards 2.OA.1 and 2.OA.2)
The two work mats for each skill are labeled “A” or “B” and have identical answers. However, the answers on each mat are positioned differently to encourage independent work when students are working in close proximity to one another. To make lesson planning easy, the work mats are labeled with Common Core math standards and a title describing the skill.
After using Math Skills Cover Ups, your students will want to cover all their math skills using these activities! If you are interested in other skills in the Math Skills Cover Ups series, you can find them in my store!
