Explanation of Activity: This is an interactive Smart Board activity that can introduce subtraction or reinforce the concept. It is an interactive, engaging activity that can be used as a mini-lesson or in a math center. This common core aligned activity begins with an interactive retell of the familiar story: "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed."
The activity allows students to write the subtraction sentence on the Smart Board and provides a self-revealing answer by tapping the pillow on the Smart Board.
After the retell is finished, there are separate slides that provide extra practice using different denominations of monkeys.
The activity has engaging animations with a sound component that teachers and students will love.
