Subtraction with Regrouping
We have made it half way through the week! It seems like it is a long haul as we inch slowly to Spring Break! We haven't had many days off lately and the weather has been spectacular. So we are ready!!! We are wrapping up the third quarter and making our way to the end of the year. Does it seem like you have saved some pretty challenging things for the end of the year like me? Some of the last things I teach are some of the hardest things I teach. Up first for my friends is subtraction. We sure do take it to the next level when we get to subtraction. Regrouping from 10's to 1's, 100's to 10's, across zeros! Whew, my brain hurts!! We love to use the subtraction poem, More On Top...No Need to Stop, More on the Floor...go next door and get 10 more, Numbers the Same?...Zero's the game. It is such a fun and catchy way to teach it. Now that we have been working on it for about 2 weeks, I thought it would be fun to do a foldable where we are sorting the different kinds of subtraction problems while practicing them at the same time! Check it out here! As you know, I teach in a Spanish/English immersion program. So lucky for you, this resource is in English AND Spanish!
