This Number Line 0 – 10 Write ‘N Wipe Mat can be used to help students learn the critically important relationship between addition and subtraction.
Making use of multiple representations allows students to access this inverse relationship in several ways – through the use of physical modeling with real-life objects, through the use of numbers in a number sentence (both addition and subtraction), and through the use of visual modeling with the number line.
I use Write ‘N Wipe sheets with students by placing them in a sheet protector, plastic pocket, or job ticket holder. You can purchase any of these items from a school or office supply store or site.
This resource comes with 2 versions of the Write 'N Wipe Mat - one for beginners who are just starting working with number lines and one for students who are ready to work more with addition and subtraction fact families.
