Missing Addends Thanksgiving Freebie


Well, the Math Coach is at a loss for words.  Imagine that.  As Thanksgiving approaches and I look forward to spending a week with my college boy man, I find myself in awe of the events of the past 11 months.  Having the opportunity to share my passion with you on an almost daily basis is a blessing beyond words.  As I seek out new math learning to share with you, I have grown as a mathematician. I am so thankful for the virtual "friends" I have made this year!  Your thoughtful comments and kind words bring a smile to my face and never get old.

I hope you and your kiddos enjoy this little Thanksgiving freebie.  Click here to grab yours from my TpT store. If you're looking for more Thanksgiving number sense activities, check out my Giving Thanks unit and my Thanksgiving themed number cards to 120!  :)

  1. Hi Donna- You are such a generous, talented, creative person. You make us all better teachers. What a gift!

    I love this freebie because year after year I try to teach missing addends to my firsties and they still struggle. I think this will be the year that they truly see it. I have been using the ten frame faithfully so it will make sense to them. GENIUS!

    Thanks again,
    Julie

  3. Thank you so much for this. I love that you added ten frames next to the number sentences so that they can make the connection.

    1. Ten-frames are magic! Ha ha. Where in Florida are you? I grew up on the panhandle. :)

  7. These are great for my struggling firsties! Thank you!! I only started following you a few months ago, but it has been great reading your advice as well as getting a hold of your great freebies. Thanks for making math so accessible to us. One questions, could you offer suggestions for working with first grade G/T math students? Right now we're writing word problems for the others to work out in stations. Any other suggestions without having to go into 2nd grade content too much?
