Addition and Subtraction Mat - Apple Tree

Free | 2 pages|Grades: Pre-K - 1

A hands-on activity to use with your students when learning to solve addition and subtraction problems up to 10.

Use this resource in your classroom when learning to solve addition and subtraction word problems using concrete objects.

Give the student a simple word problem that involves apples on an  apple tree. Students will use the apple cutouts to solve the problem. Then they will use number cards to create the matching number sentence underneath.

For a great extension activity, why not have your students generate a problem situation to match their number sentence.

This resource is great to use with your guided math groups.
