No-prep lesson materials for teaching subtraction where regrouping requires only one step. This product includes scaffolded guided notes and an exit quiz.
"I’ve taught middle school math for 12 years now- every grade level from Fourth up through Ninth. I have yet to teach a group of kids that can fluently subtract whole numbers with regrouping. If I don’t put in the time to teach it correctly, it comes back to haunt us ALL. YEAR.LONG. This is the first lesson of a 3-day lesson that will give kids the foundational subtraction skills they need to be successful in any upper elementary or middle school math class."
This product is perfect for any math classroom, 4th - 7th grade, where kids need to master subtraction quickly to allow them to access the content of their own grade level.
This product includes computation, estimation, and word problems. Students estimate so they can check their answer for reasonableness. They will also draw a visual to go with each word problem. This later helps them choose subtraction as the operation because they have practiced visualizing what is happening in the problem.
