Gear up for some subtraction fun! This mat guides students step by step through basic subtraction. Students use goldfish crackers as manipulatives, and an alligator "eats" some of the goldfish. Students count the leftover goldfish and write their answer with a dry erase marker. When laminated, teachers can use this mat to work on numerous subtraction problems. Just write the problem on the board, and have students copy it on their mats with a dry erase marker. Super fun!
