Many of my students have trouble differentiating between addition and subtraction so we made fun superhero anchor charts. I made special ones for my classroom and named them after my students and we even made capes to go with it! I made an anchor chart for you all to use and 2 matching subtraction centers.

 Subtraction Superhero Subtraction Pack:

My Subtraction Superhero pack is perfect for any math center. I make 5 math centers each week. Students are heterogeneously grouped into 5 groups. Each group visits a new math center each day. This makes planning and preparation more manageable and allows for more time at each center.  While students are working in centers, I pull students who may need a little more one-on-one assistance with a particular skill. We use engaging and unexpected materials like shaving cream to keep my group fun!

I spend about 2 weeks reviewing subtraction and I made 2 independent centers for those weeks.

Subtraction Activity 1: 

Students use the above cards to answer subtraction problems. They use the pictures to determine the correct answer. I provided 2 different recording sheets in order to more easily differentiate. 

Subtraction Activity 2:

Cut and laminate the activity cards. Students use the prurple cards to find how many counters (or bad uys) we began with. For example, ___ - 4 = 4. Students look at the picture and count how many counters they began with. Students can use a dry erase marker to record the answer on the activity card. They are also provided with a recording sheet (shown above) to record answers. This center focuses on the beginning algebraic skills outlined in the Common Core.
