Subtracting with Ten-Frames: Leaf Theme

What a great bunch of activities the 2nd grade blogging team has this week! We’re having lots of fun with a leaf theme, so all of our activities have a sweet taste of fall in them. The leaves started falling off the huge tree in our front yard this week, so I anticipate lots of leaf piles in the very near future! Until then we’re work on subtracting with ten-frames in a fun leaf theme this week. This only covers subtracting within 10, so it’s a review activity for 2nd grade, but good practice before jumping into double-digit subtraction in the next couple weeks.

This free subtraction with ten-frames activity is great for practicing subtraction within 10. Lots of fun with the cute leaves!
