Solve It Strips are a FUN, hands-on, NO PREP, math extension activity that keeps students engaged! These can be used as a math center, an early-finisher activity, with a parent-led math group, or as a mini-assessment. Solve It Strips also make fun home practice, too!
Students are challenged to use their mental math skills in solving addition and subtraction problems within 20 (using pictures) on each strip. Students begin with the “Start” strip and solve the problem on that strip. That will lead them to the second strip, and so forth, until students end up with the solution for the “FINISH” strip. Once students have the strips in the correct order, they glue them down and color in the solution boxes. Students get to keep track of their success with the included “Stars for Strips” page. Two cover options are also included, along with easy directions for storage of Solve It Strips, and an answer key.
This set of Solve It Strips focuses on simple addition and subtraction using pictures. It is ideal for first graders or kindergarteners needing an extra challenge. There are 15 puzzle strips included:
-Six strips for adding with pictures (including dominoes, dice, ten frames and tally marks)
– Six strips for subtracting with pictures (including dominoes, dice, ten frames and counters)
-Three strips with mixed addition and subtraction problems with pictures
