This 23 slide PowerPoint Presentation takes you through the subtraction strategy of "Take a Penny". "Take a Penny" is a 2 step strategy that allows students to subtract across zeros without having to go through the complicated steps of regrouping. In fact with "Take a Penny", students can subtract across zeros without regrouping at ALL!
I learned the "Take a Penny" strategy last summer, and it has transformed the way my students subtract. I actually feel like I have cheated my past classes by not teaching them this strategy. Not only is it faster, but because there are less steps students rarely make mistakes.
This product introduces how to "take a penny" and then provides an abundance of practice in working subtraction problems that require regrouping across zeroes using this extremely innovative strategy.
