My students were having a tough time relating addition to subtraction, so I came up with the interactive, fun lesson activity!
This pack includes a 26 page interactive PowerPoint lesson that uses the part, part, whole model. Click on the preview to see the slides included. First, it goes through how to subtract and check with adding step by step. Then, it asks students to complete 5 problems on their own. Students can do these on a mini white board or scrap paper. They will love learning from the fun Polly Pirate!
This pack also includes an interactive flipper activity that is perfect for use in an interactive notebook! There are three versions for differentiation! The first has the most support for those students still struggling with the concept. The second gives them support for the first problem and then they can complete the rest on their own. The last is blank so students can write their own problem. Click on the preview to see a completed flipper!
The way the flaps are designed, students can keep everything closed except for the one problem they're working on. This really helps those students who are easily overwhelmed.
The flippers are super easy to put together. Just print back-to-back, color, fold, cut, and solve! You're students will love it!
I hope your students enjoy this fun lesson and activity as much as mine did!
As always, my goal is to make teaching a breeze!
