These fun puzzles will allow your students to practice their subtracting by 3 facts. Students will subject three from numbers 3-20. Each puzzle ranges from 2-10 pieces and will have students match subtraction facts. The total product contains 53 problems! To save on ink we have included black and white copies, but you can easily print them on various colors of paper or cardstock.
Preparation and Storage: You will need to print off the desired number of copies. These work well for centers, individual work, or whole group. Cut out the Puzzle Pies. Keep one original intact; it will serve as the answer key.
Directions to Play: Give students the cut-up Puzzle Pies. Tell students they need to make the circle whole by matching the math facts.
Correcting Student Work: To easily check a student’s completed work, keep an original copy of the Puzzle Pies they are working on. This way you can immediately check to see if the numbers are in the correct order or not.
We have also included sheets where students can glue the answers on the paper or use them as a placement guide to set the puzzle pieces on top of. This allows you to differentiate for students who cannot put the Puzzle Pies back together on their own. Please look through all of the pages before you choose which ones to print!
Puzzle Pies are available in both my store and Jennifer Ayers - Best Practices 4 Teaching. They are a project we are jointly working on. You can find identical Puzzle Pies in either of our stores. Please do not purchase an identical set by mistake.
Thanks for looking!
