Ten More, Ten Less Within 100 - Cut and Paste Worksheet

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 3 pages | Grades: K - 1

Practice adding and subtracting 10 from given numbers within 100 in this cut-and-paste worksheet.

Use this teaching resource to help students find 10 more or less of a given number. To complete the worksheet, students cut and paste sums and differences in their appropriate spaces.

This worksheet is best used as independent or partner practice to support lessons in algebraic thinking and number pattern recognition. It can also be used as a pre-lesson knowledge assessment to see what students already know, or as an exit ticket to assess your students’ understanding after your lesson. 

In addition to individual student work time, this 10 more 10 less worksheet can be used for:

10 More 10 Less Worksheet Scaffolding and Extension Tips 

Encourage fast finishers to think of random numbers and then find 10 more and less of those numbers on the back of their worksheets. 

You can also opt to stretch your students’ skills by using only the first page of the worksheet, requiring students to find the sums and differences without the answers already provided on the second page. 

For students who need more support with adding and subtracting 10, provide base 10 blocks to help them visualize the concept. Students can also refer to a hundreds chart or other number display. 

Easily Prepare This Resource for Your Students

Because this resource includes an answer sheet, we recommend you print one copy of the entire file. Then, make photocopies of the blank worksheets for students to complete.  

Please also review our tips for how to turn this classroom resource into a sustainable activity: 

  • Print a few copies on cardstock and slip them into dry-erase sleeves. Instead of cutting, students can write the numbers in each column with a dry-erase marker, then erase and reuse. 
  • Print only the first page and have students add and subtract without the list of sums and differences to help them. 
  • Project the worksheet onto a screen and work through it as a class by having students record their answers in their notebooks.
