This collection of addition centers & subtraction centers was created in cooperation with EXPO Dry Erase Marker with Ink Indicator. This is a sponsored conversation written by us on behalf of EXPO. The opinions, text and created resources are all ours.
Think ahead and get some resources ready for the new school year! This computation collection includes addition centers and subtraction centers that are colorful and more engaging for students than worksheets. Simply print on card stock, laminate and grab some EXPO Dry Erase Markers with Ink Indicator – available in six different colors – and you’re all set!
Be sure to read to the bottom to find out how you can be entered to win a set of 24 EXPO Dry Erase Markers with Ink Indicator AND we will also be giving away three fully printed and laminated sets of resources!
Recently we were talking with a teacher about resources she needed for her classroom. She shared that her principal was encouraging staff to go as paperless as possible. While the thought of that might sound daunting or near impossible, we all know that funds and supplies such as copy paper are often in short demand. We need to think outside the box when we prepare lessons and centers and make sure that, as much as possible, we can reuse our materials again and again.
This collection of computation practice resources includes 4 colorful work mats and SEVEN sets of computation task cards including the following skills:
- 2-Digit addition without regrouping
- 2-Digit addition with regrouping,
- 3-Digit addition with and without regrouping
- 3 number column addition
- 2-Digit subtraction without regrouping
- 2-Digit subtraction with regrouping
- 3-Digit subtraction with and without regrouping
And speaking of supplies…how many times have you pulled out your basket of dry erase markers for a class activity only to find out as students start to use them that they are out of ink? Seems like for us, we spent the first few minutes of many lessons exchanging markers that were dried up and making sure each student had one that was working. That’s why we LOVE EXPO’s newest product Dry Erase Markers with Ink Indicator! You can tell with a quick glimpse if they’re running low and replace them before you even start! And the clear lines make it easy to read students’ handwriting. Take a look at the specific product information for these awesome markers here: EXPO’s Ink Indicator Dry Erase Markers
The materials provided are easily set up as an addition center, a subtraction center or a mixed practice center. Students draw a card, use their EXPO dry erase marker to solve the problem on the work mats and then record their answers on the recording sheet provided (if desired).
Another option is to use the cards, EXPO dry erase markers and work mats in a small guided math group. Students each choose a different card and work their problems on the mats. You can instantly see the work and thinking of your students so you know what misunderstandings need addressed. Provide some immediate feedback and have them choose another card to check for understanding.
You can download this complete set of addition centers & subtraction centers here: Computation Centers
However you decide to use these resources, we believe the best way to do it is to get the entire set printed, laminated and cut out this summer before the craziness of the school year commences in the fall. And be sure to go grab some EXPO Dry Erase Markers with Ink Indicator so you are completely ready to start. (Also, don’t forget to put the markers on your wish list for parents in the fall too!)
