Matching Math

So my intern came up with this math center for my kids this week....



They pick a pumpkin, which have 2-digit subtraction problems on them, and they use their 100s chart to figure out the answer....the skill of going up and to the left, you know??? WOW - that is SOOO hard compared to the addition - the down and to the right. 
But they have the answers on the page and they have to write the subtraction problem on the line that matches with that answer. You can make your own sheet up to go with whatever them you are doing. She just used the Ellsion machine to cut out pumpkins and hand wrote in the problems...

We only had 4 sheets and put them in page protectors and they used vis-a-vis markers...so we could reuse them over and over (you know...they count our copies and all trying to be conservative with paper).

Here' s a close up.....


This can be done with any skill really - adding, subtracting, multiplying, dividing, and even with single or multiple digits - it's up to you! Whatever your skill is for that week!

P.S. - I just put down my 2 year old for the night....I totally fell asleep too....and it was only 7:15 people!! lol.I think I'm just "a little" tired. Though I really don't know why - well, aside from the 5:15 wake up call every morning..ha!

Hey girl- saw your comment. I got my apron from

The seller is wonderful! She also said she's going to post holiday aprons soon!

PS: We're all tired. I'm not kidding when I say I fell asleep sitting on the couch at 4:30. Does that mean we're old? Ha!
