32 Addition & Subtraction Activity Bundle PPT
In 8 Different Representations:
When I started teaching, I found myself with students who did not know how write being in the same classroom with students who knew how to solve complex problems. My principal used to tell me: “All you have to do is use strategies that address all different learning styles.” – Such an easy phrase for a principal to utter, and such a hard thing to do when we are not given the proper training.
This set of four PowerPoints and Scaffolding Templates will give you all the tools and ideas you need to meaningfully engage students in adding and subtracting through the 8 different representational systems that math every learning style:
• Pictorial representations
• Standard representations
• Word representations
• Concrete representations
• Auditory representations
• Realia representations
• Experiential representations
• Word problem representations
Each PowerPoint provides you with an activity in each of the eight representations to teach:
1) Addition without regrouping
2) Addition with regrouping
3) Subtraction without regrouping
4) Subtraction with regrouping
In addition to the four Powerpoints, I am including over 25 scaffolding teaching templates on both addition and subtraction.
