Addition and Subtraction Three Digit Card Draw

Addition and Subtraction Three Digit Card Draw: Here's a freebie that makes it real easy to practice addition and subtraction skills!
Sometimes I just make up a game on the spot simply because it suits what my students need. That happened last week when my students were finishing up a unit on three digit addition and subtraction. I knew they had the basic steps, they just needed to practice the process.

So I grabbed a deck of cards and had them grab their individual white boards. We started coming up with 3 digit numbers, and practiced away!

The game transformed as we played, growing from just addition, to just subtraction. For a while we played by setting up the problem, then I'd call out "add" or "subtract".  Later, I'd let a child choose. (They were pretty tricky... they'd figure out which would be easier or which would have less regrouping needed. I was pretty impressed they were figuring that out in their heads!) After a while, the game evolved into adding AND subtracting the 2 three-digit numbers, and eventually subtracting, then adding to check their work.

The freebie below has the directions and a printable work paper for children to work on alone, with a partner, or small group. The children can work on whiteboards, but the printable is handy to have a record of their  work. Click the image or download HERE to download freebie!
