Spring is always a fun time in the classroom. The weather is warm. Easter means chicks and eggs. And teachers need to keep the kids engaged as spring fever hits. And let’s be honest, teachers are getting spring fever too! So why not engage students in an Easter subtraction activity so they can practice subtraction facts!
Easter Subtraction Activity
Ya’ll know I love me a trip to the Dollar Tree. And ya’ll know I love finding simple ideas to make learning fun. So we found these plastic chicks at the Dollar Tree. They’re supposed to be yard stakes. But what I see are sorting mats!
To make a subtraction sorting activity, I labeled the chicks with numbers 0-9. I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the numbers but you can easily use an address label and write the numbers on the label.
Then I printed subtraction cards from our Chicks Blackline Creation.
Students will choose a card, solve the subtraction equation and sort the card onto the correct chick and record the answer on the recording sheet!
Last year we used the rabbit yard stakes for a word building activity!
