print on cardstock and laminate
print on plain paper and place in page protectors
Personally, I print one mat for each child (on pretty colored paper) and a few extra just in case. I have laminated the mats to make them last a little longer. I wrote out subtraction number sentences on index cards. Students can use a dry erase marker to transfer the number sentence onto the S.S. mat. This allows students to practice writing a complete subtraction number sentence as well.
I hope you and your kiddos enjoy this subtraction smash mat as much as my kinders do. Please leave feedback after downloading. Thank you for downloading & happy teaching!
