Are your students ready to tackle and explore subtraction? Everything you need to teach an engaging guided math unit is included here! Students will learn to subtract using multiple strategies including acting it out, using manipulatives, fingers, pictures, and number lines and will learn to solve subtraction word problems.
These units were developed to be taught whole group but would also work well in a small group setting. The teacher will be guided the students in an I do, We do, You do model.
There are 7 lessons included, however, lesson 7 is meant to be stretched across 4-5 days as you practice story problems. I have included enough story problems for this to be possible.
Each lesson includes a full lesson plan with:
*Warm Up - engaging whole body counting and number sense activities
*Whole Group Activity - students will explore each concept with a hands-on activity.
*Game or Activity - most of the activities in this unit will be partner or small group sorting activities, but not all.
*Independent Follow Up - students will apply what they learned whole group to an independent paper activity.
*Home Extension - students can practice even more at home with a short practice page.

1: Taking Away
2: Minus Sign
3: Using Strategies - Manipulatives
4: Using Stategies - Fingers
5: Using Strategies - Pictures
