Spin a Fact 2 Digit Addition and Subtraction Worksheets

Spin a Fact 2 Digit Addition and Subtraction Worksheets

Spin a Fact includes 20 worksheets that will reinforce adding and subtracting 2-digit numbers. This pack has regrouping and no regrouping worksheets. Students use a paper clip and their pencil to spin the spinner. There are 12 problems on the worksheet. Students will spin 12 times. Every time they spin, they write the number they spun in a problem. Then they add or subtract. This is a fun way to add or subtract 2-digit numbers. Plus, each worksheet will have different answers so you can use them several times. Since there are multiple answers, there is no answer key provided. Students can correct their work on a calculator. Calculators are fun to keep at your math center and it’s a good way for students to practice using them.

Partitioning and Connection between Addition and Subtractions

Partitioning and Connection between Addition and Subtractions

Includes step by step instructions and worksheets This resource explores the connection between addition and subtraction with a variety of activities and worksheets. It is suitable for Year 2 and Year 3 students and connects to ACMNA029 and ACMNA054. Note: This has been set up to suit the Australian Curriculum but links to the Common Core Standards 2.NBT.A.1 and 2.NBT.B.5 Students learn that both addition and subtraction contain a “whole” and “two parts”. If the two parts are known, then addition can be used to find the missing whole. If the whole and one part is known, then subtraction can be used to find the missing part. Students learn to partition two-digit number into tens and ones (units) and use this to create related addition and subtraction sentences Students learn to partition numbers into hundreds, tens and units and then use this knowledge to work out maths problems that involve large numbers by splitting them into smaller units so they’re easier to work with.

Apples Counting and Addition Fun

Apples Counting and Addition Fun

Practice counting and adding up to 10 with these apples, trees, and ten frames. Included in this product are ten frames up to 20 (1-10 in red, 11-20 in green); two plain trees; trees with 1-10 red apples; trees with 1-10 green apples; apples labeled from 1-10 in both red and green; a mat for sorting apples between red and green; a plain line art apple page; two mini-books with empty apple trees (one with numbers from 1 to 8, the other with blanks for the student to write numbers of their choosing); and a page with a lion, tiger, and dog with the label “Put 10 Apples on Top.” This last page is inspired by the picture book Ten Apples on Top by P.D. Eastman. We use red and green pompoms to practice counting and sorting the apples. Any small manipulative would work, including small stones, stickers, translucent counting tiles, or candies. When students practice one-to-one correspondence in such a way, they can also transfer the items from the tree to a ten frame to determine the number as they count. The plain apple template could also be used for a craft or for decoration. Have your students rip small bits of construction paper or tissue paper and glue them to the apple template. Students can illustrate the mini-books with the correct number of apples.
