Day late dollar short....Subtraction and missing addends!
Boy oh boy... talk about some craziness! I have been swamped with so much here lately, I have neglected my blog so BADLY. Please forgive me! Hope these next few posts and freebies make up for it.
So back like a month ago we taught some subtraction. LOL! Just like I did for addition, I made an anchor chart with key words used for subtraction as well as an independent anchor chart for my students to complete. They are doing fantastic with subtracion!
After subtraction we went into missing addends and when I searched high and low for stuff dealing with it, I couldn't find a thing. So I began creating my own powerpoints for missing addends and my kiddos did very well grasping the concept. The first one I made was about how to be a good detective to find the missing addends. We talked about the many ways we could look for missing addends, such as we might just know the fact or we could use a number line/fact bracelet. This was a great visual for my kids and helped them greatly.
