Help students see how addition and subtraction facts are related using Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. With a click of the dice students will be able to use the addends to get the sum and then create a subtraction fact to match. Use the dual page option so students can view both the addition and subtraction problems that are related.
If used as a whole group lesson or small group lesson have students write the missing numbers using the Smart Board Notebook markers. In addition to writing the numbers on the Smart Board students could have their own reindeer pattern by cutting out and attaching the PDF reindeer pattern to a popsicle stick.This pattern could be prepared by the teacher or the students. Students can write the missing numbers using a dry erase marker.
If used as a Smart Board center students could roll the dice, record the numbers they rolled, and then write a related addition and subtraction sentence using the PDF recording sheet.
