Ocean Subtraction Match (w/ & w/out regrouping)

These ocean subtraction match sets are designed to help you create subtraction centers for a range of subtraction skills.

This collection of math centers is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.

We have created this set of ocean themed subtraction math sets to help you create math centers to fit your classroom theme or current ocean focus. 

This collection can be used to easily differentiate practice for your students. We have created four different sets.

You will find card sets for the following skills:

  • subtraction facts 
  • 2-digit subtraction w/out regrouping
  • 2-digit subtraction w/ regrouping
  • 3-digit subtraction w/ regrouping

We have color coded the borders on each card set for easy sorting. We know no matter how careful students are, cards always end up getting in the wrong spot! The color coding will make it easier for you to sort. 

To create your centers, print the sets that fit your students on card stock. We suggest laminating for durability. Cut out your centers and place in your favorite center storage containers. One option is to write the answer to each problem on the back for self-checking.

We like these containers if you are looking for a great way to store your cards (contains affiliate link):


For students to complete the activity:

Students will lay out the math problems. As they solve each problem, they need to place the answer card on top of the correct card. 

We have decided to provide these centers in separate downloads so you can print just the sets that fit your students.

You can download these ocean subtraction match centers here:
