Use this easy to prepare center activity with 2-color counters for great subtraction practice!
Easy to differentiate (teacher chooses how many counters the student will use)
Easy to set up (get 2-color counters and any plastic cup or small container)
Easy to explain (a visual "I can..." card is included)
Easy to use (for individual or small group)
Easy to assess (accountability recording sheet included)
For variety, use 9 different cups or containers labeled #1 to #9 and put a different amount of counters in each cup. Students record the results from each cup on the corresponding space on their paper.
If 2-color counters are not available, coins may be used instead, with children recording how many landed on 'heads' and how many on 'tails'.
