Children will be modeling subtraction and using math vocabulary "How many are left?" to solve subtraction problems starting with the number 5. Activity addresses CCSS K.OA.1 and K.OA.5.
The activity can be used at independent math centers, in small group or with a math intervention group. Children will need teddy bear counters OR Teddy Graham crackers. I'm hoping you go and get some Teddy Grahams, that is where I found my inspiration!
The work mats provided give the activity structure but allows for independence and success with subtraction! The Show What You Know practice page is an excellent resource to get your little learners ready for their math test.
I hope your class will enjoy this activity as much as my little learners did! Thanks for checking it out!
