This resource teaches students various two-digit subtraction strategies and three-digit subtraction strategies including open number lines, base ten blocks, expanded form (composing and decomposing numbers), and more. The 2-digit subtraction strategies and 3-digit subtraction strategies activities, posters, and centers do not teach using the traditional algorithm! Common Core standards require students to be able to use different strategies to solve addition and subtraction problems, and this set focuses on SUBTRACTION.
If you're looking for addition strategies, look here: Addition Strategies Cheer Squad
I also have a BUNDLE of both Addition & Subtraction Squads - HERE: Addition & Subtraction Strategy Bundle
Included in this pack are strategies for subtracting numbers using a hundreds chart, number line, decomposing numbers (break it down - expanded form), and base ten blocks.

I have also included instructions for how to print multiple posters per page so they can be miniature-sized to fit in student notebooks.

Activities that go with the strategies:
