Silly Band Math (and a Freebie)

I went to Walmart the other day and found packs of silly bands for $1 (on clearance from $2).  I immediately looked to see if they had the alphabet packs because I had been looking for these to use in Word Work centers - SCORE!  They had them!  They also had number sets so I started thinking that would be great for a math center too.  I made up a couple of math boards to use with them - one for addition and one for subtraction. 

I also made up a quick answer sheet to put both addition and subtraction equations on.  My school is a green school (we don't make copies) so we would normally just write the equations right in our math journal, but I may sneak this out (will have to run copies at home - that is why I put the answer sheet two-to-a page).  Anyway, if you would like to use this, you can save paper too :)

Happy Wednesday!
