Santa Write the Room (Subtraction from 20) ---
This is great for using the mini shaped erasers from the Dollar store for manipulatives as students solve each problem. Students may also need some scratch paper to use for solving some equations or they can rewrite the equation on the recording sheet and solve it there.
This resource includes five pages of subtraction problems in color with a total of 30 subtraction cards. The numbered cards have images of Santa with the equations. These equations include subtracting from 20.
Teachers should copy the cards on cardstock (for durability and saving for future years) or plain paper, laminate (if desired), cut apart, and then post the cards around the room. If you don't want students walking around the room, the cards can be put in a center or in a pocket chart.
Depending on how many cards you want to use, you can post/use numbered cards 1-15, 16-30 or both.
There are two recording sheets. One is for cards 1-15 which include subtracting from 10 and one is for cards 16-30 which include subtracting from 20. These two different sets provide for differentiation for different levels of students.
Students can complete one or both recording sheets when they are in their center.
Students will roam the room to find the numbered cards. After finding a card, students write the answer to the equation on the recording sheet. Example: Card number one has the equation 8-3=, so students will write the number (numeral) 5 on their recording sheet in the number one box.
Answer keys are provided for both sets of recording sheets either as a self-check for students or for the teacher to have an answer key to quickly check papers.
***There are 9 total pages including four pages of answer keys: 5 card pages, 2 recording sheets, and 2 answer keys to the recording sheets.
The PREVIEW shows every page included.
This activity is great for a math center.
I hope your students have fun with this "Write the Room" activity for subtraction from 20.
