What are teachers saying about this Kindergarten subtraction to 10 unit?

This is one of my favorite TPT purchases ever! I love how simply and easily it teaches subtraction following a progression that makes sense for students. I love how each day teaches a new strategy for subtraction and my students were so engaged. This resource is far better than any commercial math program I have had to teach from.

-Molly H.

I purchased this resource to supplement another math program I was using and ended up buying the math curriculum for the whole year. Her work was perfect for my students as I could easily adjust the materials to suit their needs and skills. I highly recommend it for your classroom!

-Katherine H

This resource is a wonderful addition to our subtraction unit. Everything is specifically planned and put together in a meaningful way. Wonderful resource!
