This is an activity that your young ones can cut out in about 5 minutes and then paste together to form practice cards that they can use to remember their "missing addend" facts.
• This is very, very easy for young children to cut out: the pieces are all straight sides (no curves to trim), and can be completed with a minimum of cuts. My 2nd graders cut them out in under 8 minutes.
• There are 24 different problems, with a minimum of wasted paper (2 short strips and 2 small rectangles.)
• The format of the "missing addend" shows the sum on both the left and right side of the equation. The missing addend is also the first or second addend.
• No cutesy graphics!
More to come!
