Addition Subtraction Activities within 50

Add and Subtract within 50 Mental Maths Printable Activities for independent work, starters, warms ups, early finisher tasks etc: A set of 36 self-check mixed addition and subtraction to 50 trail cards to be laminated for pupils to complete with wipeable pens, plus a bingo / lotto game. These KS1 Maths / Numeracy resources were originally designed for Year 1 and 2 (P2 / P3) but could suit KS2 pupils requiring consolidation.

Each editable card contains 14 mental maths calculations - over 500 calculations across the whole set. ALL ANSWERS INCLUDED.

A fun activity for regular practice of addition and subtraction facts / number bonds within 50. They can be used by individuals or you could have pairs or small groups racing against each other to complete trails accurately. Great for starters, early finishers etc. It promotes speed and accuracy and is a more engaging alternative to worksheets.

Starting at the mouse and working their way around the card in a spiral, children write the answer to each calculation in the box, creating a running total. The final answer is printed next to the cheese in the middle of the card so they can see if they have correctly completed it. If not, children can check to see where they have gone wrong.

Answer cards can be used by the pupils themselves or by the teacher to see at a glance where pupils have gone wrong. Print and laminate if required.

Print and laminate the 6 boards and the calculation cards. Players shuffle cards and put them in a pile to take in turn and check if they have the answer on their board. Calculation cards are EDITABLE.
