Superhero Day Subtraction

I just wanted to share a quick blog post with you about a Superhero themed math activity I am planning to use with my students tomorrow for National Superhero Day!!  We will be wearing our Superhero shirts tomorrow!  My kids were so excited and telling me all about the shirts they would be wearing!
 
We have been working a lot with subtraction so I am going to teach my students this fun math activity.  They love spinner games so I thought this would be perfect for them.  For this activity, students will need the "Superhero Subtraction" mat, cubes/counters/chips/etc, and a paper clip and pencil to spin the spinner.  Here are the directions:

**I wanted to come back and post some pictures of my students doing this activity.  They LOVED it!
I have an interactive whiteboard with a projector - I LOVE it!!  I introduced this with my students by projecting it up on the screen.  I just thought this was the cutest when one of my students had their Superman cape on doing the Superhero Subtraction activity!

 First they spin the 6-10 spinner.

Then they count out that many cubes on the ten frame.

Spin the 1-5 spinner and subtract that many away from the ten frame.
 
We have already added this to one of our math stations!
