Sweetheart Subtraction Slide & MORE!
A couple of weeks ago, I was purchasing another set of wonderful writing center task cards from Denise at Sunny Days in Second Grade, and I happened upon her FREE subtraction slide games. I printed out the penguin and Valentine versions and our janitor started collecting water bottle caps in the lunchroom. I didn't get in gear in time to use the penguin version, but I did get the Sweetheart Subtraction Slide ready ALMOST in time for Valentine's Day (the day after). :0) The kids had to explain how they subtracted the sum of the two dice from 20, and a couple of students who had a bit more difficulty explaining used the rekenrek as a model of their thinking. Denise also has a Halloween and Spring version available for FREE on Teachers Pay Teachers. With her permission, I have also created two versions you may download for free--St. Patty's Day Sweet Treat Subtraction Slide and Go Green Subtraction Slide. Simply print on legal sized paper (14" x 8.5"), recycle 22 water bottle caps for each game, and label the caps with the numbers 8-18 (two of each number). Many thanks to Denise for granting me permission to post these games. Please take the time to visit her at SunnyDays on Teachers Pay Teachers, if you haven't already! :0)
