20 Sheep Before Sleep - Read Aloud For Subtraction and Addition

Product Description

How do we make addition and subtraction less algorithmic and more beautiful? Reading and writing stories celebrating the numbers themselves.

This story is about decomposing numbers, and provides a visual demonstration of subtraction. The story is also an AABBCC poem with a particular meter.

Hear my reading of it here: https://youtu.be/bxbhrioHokk?t=29

After reading or presenting the story, consider having students create their own story visually demonstrating addition or subtraction.

Feel free to edit by opening the .pptx file in Google Docs.
