Daily Math Practice- Level 4 (Subtraction with Visuals)

I created a "Daily Math Practice" curriculum that provides daily practice on each skill.  Each skill is sold as a "level" in my teachers pay teacher's store.  Each level provides 180 worksheets targeting the same skill.  Each worksheet is double sided.  Each worksheet is presented in a clear format with large font.  The pages are repetitive to build independence for each child.  The worksheets are created with large font and enough space to minimize distractions.  The curriculum is designed so that there is one worksheet for each day for an entire school year.

Here is a preview of Level 4- which targets the skills of subtraction with visual supports.  This is designed similar to Level 3- addition.  I wanted to add a step in between counting and math facts that taught the concept of "take away."  As you can see below, in problem 1, it is demonstrated how to do the math facts.  First, students read the problem, 4-1.  They then count 4 balls.  They then cross out 1 ball.  Staff prompt the student with, "How many are left?"  I am pleasantly surprised with how quickly they have grasped this concept and are now completing the whole page independently.  Its FABULOUS….their just about ready for Level 5 :)

Here is the front of the worksheet:

Here is the back of the worksheet:  The last problem of each worksheet is a word problem.  Not all of my student are able to read these independently, so in this case, it is read aloud to them.  I teach my students to say, how many are there in all, and then draw a circle for each one.  And then the same as above, they cross out how many are taken away, then count to see how many are left!

Along with 180 daily practice worksheets, anchor charts are also included.  These anchor charts are designed to be used as visual supports for the students.  Here is the math Anchor Chart wall I have posted in my classroom.

Here is the Anchor Chart included with Level 4:

I teach math in a small group during my morning rotations.  I organize my student's worksheets in individual student math folders.  I make copies for one month at a time and store in each folder! It's SO simple, no prep and my students are being challenged more than they ever have been before.

On the inside of the folder I have a "to do" and a "finished" side.  This way we can keep the worksheets organized so that at the end of the month the work can be sent home for parents to review!

The absolutely best part of this curriculum is that it is paired with the writing through the year curriculum I also designed.  Each day is labeled in the top right corner with a "day 19" label.  Every day matches the math and writing curriculum, no matter what level it is.  For example, Day 1: students write a sentence, "The apple is red." while for math, they color apples, they count apples, they add apples, and they subtract apples.  Click here to read more about my writing curriculum.
