This unit is the third unit of a first grade MASTER math curriculum built around the belief that students need to be exposed to math in a variety of ways. It focuses on subtraction to ten with a variety of strategies. Students will work on subtracting with a number line, solving subtraction number stories, writing number sentences, writing number stories, and making number patterns with subtraction to 10. Master Math can be taught in many ways but I will provide the tools to make it a rotation based learning process. Each lesson begins with a whole group mini lesson provided in a SMART notebook version or a pdf file. Then students begin to rotate (much like centers). MASTER stands for Manipulatives, Apply Skills, Small Group, Technology, Enrichment, and Review. There are activities provided for each component listed, lesson plans, assessments, SMART notebook files, and a fun culminating craft. Included you will receive:
