Get your little pirates up and engaged in practicing subtraction facts to 5! These math centers are an engaging way to address fluency subtracting within 5. This packet has 5 sets of Subtract the Room equation cards. Each set has 10 cards. There is a recording page for each set of cards. The cards and recording pages have matching graphics. These activities are great for Talk Like a Pirate Day, but can be used at any time during the year.
Print, laminate, and cut out the equation cards. Make copies of the recording pages.
For optimal printing results select Automatic Orientation (Portrait/Landscape) on your printer settings.
Hang the cards in places all around the room. Give each student a clipboard, pencil, and recording page. Learners search the room for cards with equations. When they find a card, they write the equation and difference in the correct space 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.
