Sweet Subtraction is a great way to review and practice solving 2-digit or 3-digit subtraction problems with and without regrouping. The activities included in this pack are aligned with the Common Core Standards for first and second grade. Students may use either the 2-digit or 3-digit cards as a teacher directed whole group scoot activity or the subtraction cards can be used with a partner or in a math station for additional practice. Answer cards are also included for students to check their answers. Students record their answers on their leveled scoot activity page. Once they complete their scoot activity page, students can then solve the 2-digit or 3-digit subtraction word problems. As an extension activity, students can create their own sweet or holiday themed word problem for a partner to solve.
1st and 2nd Grade Common Core Standards
1.OA.3 Apply properties of operations as strategies to add and subtract.
2.OA.1 Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems involving situations of adding to, taking from, putting together, taking apart, and comparing, with unknowns in all positions, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
2.NBT.7 Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
