This math center and craftivity is perfect for these spring months!
This resource includes a spring background work mat, subtraction facts 0-10 cards and colorful butterfly counters. Print, cut and laminate all items and allow students to engage with them during math centers; either at independent work or guided math groups. Students will pick a subtraction fact card, show the equation using the butterfly counters and then write the subtraction sentence on the mat with a dry erase marker.
Once students have manipulated the center, they can extend their learning by making their own subtraction problem using the black and white background and butterflies. I have included a sample work page to show how the craftivity should look once finished. Students will color the background mat and cut as many butterflies out that they would like to use, and lastly they will write their subtraction number sentence and cross out that many butterflies. Enjoy!!
