Hello Friends, 

Yes, a "Freebie Friday" on Saturday! I told myself that during this 2021 - 2022 school year I'll created and publish a new Freebie each Friday for you and your school files to help you after such a rough year. Yesterday was a miserable allergy day, so here I am, a day late, but still with a new freebie for you! Enjoy! :)


This FREE Back to School Color By Number Subtraction Resource includes 1 color by number page and 1 answer key page. With the Answer Key also included, this helps you quickly and efficiently check your students work in a very short amount of time.

** Additional Important Information **
In this resource, the directions state, "You pick the color for any empty areas." I have no math problems on the children's hair and skin, allowing your students to select any hair color and skin tone color. This also allows for some creativity after their math is done by selecting additional colors of their choice for the blank areas and the borders. This feature is a real hit with my teacher buyers!

Do you have an art teacher at your school? Maybe? Maybe not? I wrote a blog post about turning academic Color By Code worksheets into a fun art center for your classroom. Click here to learn more about using this in your classroom.

I also wrote about using a simple box of crayons to informally assess your new students first thing when they enroll in your classroom, especially non-English speaking children. I've used this quick and easy lesson for years and many teachers write me to thank me for such a quick tip to asses and develop a relationship with a new student. Click here to read it or to pin for later.
