Crayon Themed Subtraction Sorting

There are loads of match themes for kids to work on during back to school. I know that we review loads of math once school is back and I wanted to add something fun for that.

Today I have a fun and simple subtraction sorting activity to help with that! It provides a fun and simple review for kids to do

I know that when we do review I love to have hands-on with an option to record the results. And this set has both.

There are three crayons that are sorted to the crayon boxes. The subtraction works on numbers from 20 to 1. You will have answers from 1 to 10. I recommend laminating the crayons and boxes to help them last longer.

Y0u can see an the crayon boxes below.

The set also has a recording sheet for them to record their finds. I like having both options for kids that work on math that might need to do some writing at the same time.

How we used these printables

The most basic way to use this is just the sorting activity. You will find the three crayons that match the number. I tried to mix up the equations a little bit.

The second way is to just use the crayons with the recording sheet. You can give them the crayons and then have them fill in the equations that match the correct line.
