This Kindergarten TEKS Support Pack helps you meet one of the Numbers and Operations TEKS K.3A.
K.3A Model the action of joining to represent addition and the action of separating to represent subtraction.
This pack comes with two printable math stories that you can create and read to engage the students in the content and gives students a visual representation in a narrative format to model the action of joining and separating. The specificity of the TEKS include that students can use objects, fingers, drawing, and acting out the situation in conjunction with verbal explanations, expressions, and equations.
You can read the math stories and have the students show you the math problem using their fingers or drawing along with a dry erase board. This could be a great RtI activity for the students.
When you are done reading the books, add them to a math center. Students can make their own book modeling the action of joining or separating.
As a bonus, you also get 11 printable pages to help support you in teaching this concept. There are a couple of blank masters that you can use to create your own pages too!
