Product Description
The subtraction poem can help students better understand all the ways of subtraction. You will have to write in the 2 boxes about the problem next to "More on the floor?...Go next door and take 10 more".

Song and Dance
I start a slow, large clap with my students. They repeat me.
I then start to sing and dance
"More on the top?" I put my hands in the air to represent "the top"
"No need to stop!" I push my arms back and forth and shake my head "no"
I then jump to the floor "More on the floor?"
Then I jump/hop to the right, while still on the floor. "go next door"
Then I jump/hop to the left, while still on the floor with my ten fingers up. "and get 10 more."
I stand up waving my hands back and forth "Numbers the same?"
Then I make a zero with my heads "zero's the game".

The students loved it and had fun. I watched so many light bulbs go off with this poem/song.
