This ocean themed resource provides fun and inviting math centers for little learners to practice subtraction within 10. There are 5 subtraction clip card math centers activities in this packet. Each activity has 12 clothespin clip cards and a recording sheet. There is an addition fact and a choice of three differences printed on each clothespin clip card. These task cards are great for morning tubs, early finishers, informal assessment, and take home practice. The cards and recording sheets have ocean animal graphics. The images include a whale, a crab, a sea turtle, an octopus, and a shark. These activities work well with ocean, beach, and summer themes.
Print, laminate, and cut out the clothespin clip cards. Print the recording sheet that goes with the clothespin clip cards. You will need 12 clothespins for each activity.
Learners clip a clothespin on the correct difference or they can use dry erase markers to circle the correct difference. You may opt to make these cards self-checking by writing the answer on the back or marking a dot on the back at the correct spot.
After selecting the correct difference, learners write the equation and difference on the recording sheet.
These activities help learners develop subtraction fluency and support the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
Thank you for looking at this resource. I hope you and your learners enjoy these activities.
