Wipe-Off Tree: For this activity you will need to draw a large tree on a piece of paper. In the middle of the tree draw a template for a three one digit addition problem (____+____+____=____). Under the first two blanks draw two arrows that will meet in a point to a blank line below. Next to the first blank, which will contain the answer to the first portion of the addition problem, there will be another addition sign and another blank, to be filled in with the last number in the addition problem. The template inside of the tree should look like this.
________ + _______=_______
Next, laminate the picture, so that you can reuse this tree template. Use wipe off dry erase markers when working on problems. Have your child fill in the template and solve the problem in sections.
