This is a set of 4 activity pages designed to help students develop the skill of decomposing numbers 2, 3, 5 and 6 using SUBTRACTION using 1" construction paper squares.
Students will glue paper squares into each string of boxes, then write an "X" on some paper squares to show which squares are being subtracted. For each page, students will create different methods of breaking a number apart, and then record the corresponding subtraction sentence beside each tile creation.
This activity was specifically designed for Common Core standard K.OA.3 (Decompose Numbers less than or equal to 10 into pairs in more than one way and record each decomposition by a drawing or equation)
PLEASE NOTE THAT THESE ARE PDFs OF LEGAL-SIZE (8.5"x14" DOCUMENTS). Before printing, you will probably need to go File->Print Setup and adjust your print settings to "Legal" size paper.
