Self-Correcting Math Flowers

You can never have too many addition & subtraction center activities.  I heard of this activity awhile ago (before the era of blogging became popular). You can use this self-correcting concept for pretty much any skill.  

I put addition problems on the flower and buried under the pinto beans is the answer.  Students can use a recording sheet to write the problem and check themselves with the answer.  Surprisingly, my students do not cheat on self-correcting activities where they know how to find the answer.  Seeing if they get it right is half the fun!  
4 Sets of Self-Correcting Math Flowers featuring 10 different addition problems on one side and 10 different subtraction problems on the other.  A grand total of 80 different math problems!!!  (Materials= popsicle sticks painted green, foam flowers, pinto beans, glue, maker, Jiffy Strips from Walmart)
