Product Description
Here’s a set of 24 subtraction task cards that will strengthen your kindergarten and first grade students’ skills in subtracting from minuends of ten or less.

Choosing from four numbers, your students will determine Mr. Skunk’s’ Secret Number by eliminating three of the options. With each riddle task card they do, your students will complete three subtraction number models. They'll have a great time and won’t even realize that they’ve completed 72 subtraction problems!

A student recording page, answer key, and four-in-a-row game are also included.

Here are some ways that you might use the task cards in your classroom:
* Use in a math center for individual or partner work
* Use with your document camera for whole class review or to focus attention at the beginning of a math lesson
* Use as a skills review rotation (aka "Scoot"), individually or with partners, with students moving to stations around the classroom to solve the clues
* Use for morning “bell ringers”
* Use as challenge work or for early finishers
* Use as an activity with classroom volunteers – they can complete as few or as many as time allows!
* Print in black and white to use in interactive notebooks. Give one puzzle to each student and have them write about their thinking in solving the riddle.

K.OA.A.3, K.OA.A.4, 1.OA.C.6
