16 addition and subtraction self-check trail cards for Key Stage 1 (KS1) and early KS2 (and other equivalents). Here you will find samples from 4 different adding and subtracting mental maths self-check trail card sets, to be laminated for pupils to complete with wipeable pens. A more engaging alternative to worksheets, they can be turned into a competitive game if required, with pupils racing each other to complete. Regular use helps to build speed and accuracy.
4 cards have been taken from each of the following sets:
Adding and subtracting within 20
Adding and subtracting to 50
Adding and subtracting 9, 10 and 11
Adding and subtracting multiples of 10
The full packs from which these cards have been taken each contain editable versions of 36 cards, answer versions of all cards plus another resource (bingo game or Tarsia jigsaw puzzles). All four full sets (144 cards plus the other bingo /puzzle resources) are available in a great value bundle here: Add / Subtract Games and Activities BUNDLE
These are very flexible resources, ideal for starters, early finishers etc. They can be used by individuals or you could have pairs or small groups racing against each other to complete trails accurately.
Starting at the top illustration and working their way around the card in a spiral, children write the answer to each calculation in the box, creating a running total as they go. The final answer is printed at the end of the trail, beside the illustration in the middle of the card, so they can see if they have correctly completed it. If not, children can check their work to see where they have gone wrong.
In my TES shop you can also find some attractive, self-check maths board games, such as the ones in this bundle:
