a SMARTBOARD version has been added to this document as of October, 2014.
a TASK CARD VERSION has been added to this file as of March 9, 2016.
This math center gives students concrete practice with simple “take away” subtraction problems up to 10. Each mat is a jar where students place cookie counters. Each mat has a simple problem, such as: “Put in 6 cookies. Take away 4. How many are left?” Students use paper cookie counters (I have used real cookies) to solve the problems. There is a recording sheet and answer key. Two answer keys are included. One is for students who write the number sentence and one for students who just write how many cookies are left.
