Spring is finally here so I thought it would be fun to share a camping themed addition and subtraction packet. Even if you are not a fan of camping, I’m pretty sure everyone loves s’mores. This packet is aligned to several first grade common core standards for addition and subtraction. It is also aligned to some kindergarten and second grade standards. I will be using these materials for special education and for RTI math intervention, but they can also be used as supplements to curriculum in general education classrooms.

The packet contains flashcards for all single digit addition and subtraction problems (sums 0-18). You can use these flashcards for practice or for games like matching, sorting, etc. (You will need to print out extra copies of the “campfire” answer cards for games.)
There are 10 pages of story problem worksheets for numbers within 10. (5 are addition and 5 are subtraction). There are also 10 pages of story problem worksheets for numbers within 20. (5 are addition and 5 are subtraction). All the story problems are camping themed.
There is a template for adding 3 digits activity. Students roll a die 3 times and record each roll on the template, then add the numbers to find the sum.
There are 10 pages of “What’s Missing?” addition pages where students find the missing number in a given addition equation. There are also 10 pages of “What’s Missing?” subtraction pages where students find the missing number in a given subtraction equation.
There are 10 pages of “True or False?” addition pages where students decide if a given addition equation is true or false. There are also 10 pages of “True or False?” subtraction pages where students decide if a given subtraction equation is true or false.
There are 10 pages of addition speed drills (sums 0-18), and 10 pages of subtraction speed drills (differences 0-9). You can time students as they complete these worksheets to build their fluency.
There are 30 S’more Bingo templates (3×3). To win, students must get 3 answers in a row that build a s’more (1 marshmallow, 1 chocolate and 1 graham cracker.) You can adjust the game rules to meet your needs, e.g. students have to build 2 or 3 s’mores to win or winning spaces don’t have to build a s’more. You can use the flashcards (addition, subtraction or both) to call out equations for students to find the answers to on their bingo boards. There is also a blank bingo board (5×5) you can use and have students fill out.
Finally, there are 5 mixed review worksheets (addition and subtraction mixed) that you can use to assess students’ fluency on the facts within 10.
I hope you love this packet and that it really helps your students! Hopefully, they will be “happy campers!” 😉 If you like it, I really appreciate your feedback and follows. Thank you so much!
