You can use this lesson to teach addition and subtraction to 10. I like to give the students marshmallows to use as manipulatives, but you can use any kind of small manipulatives you have.
This makes it more fun, and they have a snack when they are finished.
This lesson usually takes 1-2 days to complete for Kindergarten.
I have the students put their Workmat next to their recording sheets that I have made into a booklet by stapling the pages at the top. (See the picture)
We orally go through all the “Understand” part of the UPS-Check method that we use with our Problem of the Day.
If you have any questions, please let me know!
