Mr. and Mrs. Fix It Missing Addends

Even though I promised myself I wouldn't work on them during the holidays (and I haven't!) I admit that I have been thinking about them.  We have a long stretch of time between our first and second tern report cards so we send home interim reports in a few weeks.  I know, right now you're so jealous, right?????

One of the ways we decide between appropriate development and strong performance with addition is whether or not students understand missing addends.  I created this activity awhile back to engage students and to check their understanding.
Students love choice so I created 2 different recording sheets for them to choose from.  There is an I can... card to build student independence.  Students choose a number sentence card then find a bolt that has the missing number to fix the equation.  Here's a peek at what's included:
This activity is available at my TPT store and is ready for you to print and add to a math work station.  I'll send this activity to the first 2 followers who leave a comment (with your email) on this post.


  1. Looks great!

  2. Your work is always great!

  3. I missed it! Love your stuff!

  4. Laureen, this is super cute. Do you have some kind of a template that you use for your interim reports? If so, I would love to have an electronic version. I've been thinking about doing these as well.
