Hello! Hello! This past week we started out unit in subtraction. I’m not sure about your little ones, but ours go straight from addition to subtraction! Some do well with the swift transition but others are still building a solid foundation in addition, so subtraction is some kind foreign language to them.
I started with small, building blocks this year and that has helped to eliminate the mass confusion! We have also watched some favorite videos and played some fun hands-on games that have also helped with the transition.

We played, 5 birdies in the tree! I called out how many birds the students needed to remove each time and then I wrote the problem on the board for them to see. They did very well with the hands-on and then seeing how that connected to what I wrote on the board.
After we worked with the birdies in the tree, we read and worked through this adorable matching book!
