Great game for math centers to help students practice multiple ways to subtract numbers with or without regrouping! Students draw 4 cards to create two, two digit numbers and subtract by recording the math on their paper and showing their buddy by building with tens and ones. After each partner has created 2 digit numbers and subtracted to find the difference they compare the answer and the partner with the higher number gets a point. Students can play with a pack of regular playing cards or the cards included with the pack.I use this game during math workshop to give students continual practice with this skill. This game aligns with VA 2nd grade math standards along with 2nd grade Common Core standards.
This game can be played with double digit minus single digit numbers, double digit minus double digit numbers, and extended for higher level learners to triple digit minus double digit numbers and triple digit minus triple digit numbers. Everything you need to play is in the pack. Enjoy! :-)
