NOTE: To take full advantage of this resource, you will need to have physical manipulatives for the students to use. The digital version has movable counters.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "We are working on this right now! I know the kids will LOVE using the bears and this will make it very concrete for those still struggling with the concept! Thank you!" Lori L.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "This is GREAT to have in the classroom. This is a tough concept to model and teach, but this will allow for lots of independent practice that's fun, because it "looks" like a game. I may even have a tips card for students similar to the one you wrote for us. Thanks!!!" Tonya H.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Thank you for this activity! I will be using this in my math centers. I love how they have to write in their journals! It's simple and fun!" Tammy W.
