Do your students struggle with subtraction facts? Use these fun Spring-themed pages to practice math facts with your students! These color by number printables are perfect for morning work, homework, or an independent activity.
There are 12 pages of Spring color by code practice for subtraction facts 1-20! There is also a second set of 12 pages without light and dark color variations (for example: instead of light and dark blue, there’s only blue).
How can I use these printable color by number pages in my classroom?
These pages can be used as an independent activity! Each page has numbers and number words listed (for e.g. 1 one, 2 two) along with a code at the top. For students that struggle to read number words, make a model for them with only the code at the top colored. They can look at your code and match the color to the color word on their own page.
These pages can be used as morning work, homework, an independent center activity, or as an early finisher. Students will practice subtraction facts and feel like they are completing a fun coloring page!
What makes these color by number pages effective learning tools?
– Not only are students developing meaningful math fact skills, but they are also engaging in fine motor practice. They have to color neatly and inside the lines. This requires the use of fine motor skills.
– They also get to stimulate the creative side of their brain! Coloring is viewed as a ‘fun’ activity and students will enjoy the opportunity to be creative.
– These printables also increase student engagement. When a student sees a blank coloring page, they feel the anticipating of what could be. This is the ideal brain space for learning!
– Coloring is calming. Completing these pages will be much less stressful than doing a round of flashcards. This is brain-friendly practice!
