You will love how easy it is to prepare these Ocean Themed Subtraction Task Cards for Subtraction Doubles, Subtraction Doubles Plus One, Subtract One, Subtract Two, and Subtraction of Zero for your class. My students LOVED Task Cards and your students will too! You can dedicate one of your math centers, math workstations, as a task card center. By changing out the skill each week, your students already know the directions for using the task cards. Your students will enjoy the freedom of task cards while learning and reviewing important skills at the same time! Students can answer these subtraction task cards in your classroom math journals or on the included recording sheet. Perfect for an assessment grade for the week!

Once your students are use to the expectations of using task cards, your task card math center can run all year with different skills from a variety of over 700+ of my task cards! Click here to see all my task cards.

When it comes to the ease of prepping these subtraction task cards, all pieces are rectangular and easy for you or a parent volunteer to cut on a paper slicer. No need to cut around a cute turkey or round pumpkin task card, just rectangles with graphics that are adorable and eye catching to hold your students' interest!

These subtraction task cards also include the answer key, which you can laminate and leave at the center to allow it to be a student led, self-checking sheet. In small group lessons you can give each student three to four cards and they can help each other and review more subtraction skills by checking the answers that their partner or neighbor answered, keeping everyone involved! Keep your students engaged, alert and on their toes with this one little, cute subtraction task cards resource!

Enjoy this Easy to Prep Ocean Themed Subtraction Task Cards for Subtraction Doubles, Subtraction Doubles Plus One, Subtract One, Subtract Two, and Subtraction of Zero in your Math Center!

The task card pages are labeled so that you know what subtraction skill your students are working on, but it is not on the student cards.... mix them all together, or differentiate with only giving the students a few at a time. For example, your advanced group can be working on all the subtraction skills while your lower group can be working only on subtraction doubles.

Fluently add and subtract within 20 using mental strategies. By end of Grade 2, know from memory all sums of two one-digit numbers.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Relate counting to addition and subtraction (e.g., by counting on 2 to add 2).
Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract. If 8 + 3 = 11 is known, then 3 + 8 = 11 is also known. (Commutative property of addition.) To add 2 + 6 + 4, the second two numbers can be added to make a ten, so 2 + 6 + 4 = 2 + 10 = 12. (Associative property of addition.)
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
