This is a sheet created for the Van de Walle Activity of the similar name.
Students solve subtraction problems involving numbers, squares (hundreds), sticks (tens), and dots (ones).
It is very powerful because students practice place value skills, adding, and skip counting through this activity.
There are many different entry points and ways kids can find the total.
They could go in order as numbers and pictures appear in the row.
They can start with the number and subtract parts until they get to a friendly number.
There are 3 differentiated sheets to use with your class, from low to high abilities.
