Subtract the Room
(Minuends to 10)
Recess Rocks Subtract the Room is a math variation of the student favorite activity “Write the Room.” 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 kids at recess themed graphics. The kids are swinging, sliding, jumping rope, playing football, playing on a see-saw, and riding a merry-go-round. Recess Rocks Subtract the Room can be used for a Back to School theme or at any time during the year.
Print, laminate, and cut out the equation cards. Make copies of the recording pages.
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.
Recess Rocks Subtract the Room helps learners develop subtraction fluency and supports the Math Common Core Standards for Operations and Algebraic Thinking.
