Help your students practice addition & subtraction within twenty plus work on reading comprehension with these self-checking printables. Included in this unit are five “Winter Mystery Phrase” printables
and answer keys
. The printables are differentiated as follows:
- “Winter Mystery Phrase” #1 & #2 – Addition within 20
- “Winter Mystery Phrase” #3 & #4 – Subtraction within 20
- “Winter Mystery Phrase” #5 – Addition & subtraction within 20
To complete the activity, students should answer all the questions to find out each letter’s corresponding number. Students then use that information to complete the simple winter themed sentences by putting each letter on the line that corresponds to the correct number. Some letters may occur more than once in the answer and some may not appear at all. To ensure comprehension, once the mystery phrase is revealed, students are to draw a picture representing it.
These worksheets could be placed in a math center during the winter or provided to students for independent addition & subtraction practice.
