Here is a game designed to help students learn how to subtract using the story of bees going into a hive. I have uploaded a video to share with you how you can use this as a Smart board game or as a small guided group at your table! (I have received permission to share educational video with you all!)
I included two different strategies students can use to complete the problem. They can use the number sentence strategy or the number line.
Using a real world problem story helps introduce the concept of taking away for our little kindergartners. At first it will state how many bees they see. Then some of the bees went into the hive. Work wtih students to model how to think through solving the problem to figure out how many bees are inside the hive!
