Find and Hide includes activity mats to practice addition and subtraction within 10. There are five themed sets included. The sets are year-round, non-seasonal so they can be used at any time during the school year. Themes include cars, buttons, muddy pigs, snacks, and tools.
Each set comes with a cover page, addition cards, subtraction cards, and mixed addition and subtraction cards. There is an optional recording page for each set. These are great for math centers, morning activities, or early finishers.
Print and cut the cards in half. You can punch a hole in the upper left corner and store these on metal rings. You can choose to use only one skill: addition, subtraction, or mixed practice. Or make a large set by mixing the skills.
Students will need plastic cubes, mini erasers, or other small manipulatives to cover the spaces.
To complete the activity, students identify the number on the right side of the card. They will solve the addition and or subtraction problems and cover the spaces that equal the number. If students are using the recording sheet option, they will write down some of the addition and/or subtraction sentences that they solved. This activity can be used with or without the recording sheet.
