Show What You KnowSolving Subtraction Problems (K/1st Grade) 
PK to 5 
(0 stars, 1 ratings) The purpose of this lesson is to help students understand the concept behind the abstract symbols used in subtraction. Specifically, Kindergarteners are still learning number symbols and alphabets as well as the plus sign so distinguishing symbols and what they represent when presented with them are extremely important. All students need concept development to retain such skills. This lesson will teach students a new strategy for solving subtraction as well as provide a pictorial representation of subtraction. Language development of vocabulary like minus, take away, less and fewer is also important for all students in math progression as these terms will be used in word problems and comparing amounts throughout school and in the real world. First graders will have a combination of addition and subtraction with subtraction word problems. Students will discuss these concepts, learn and practice a new strategy and then use the strategy that works best for them in their independent and partner tasks. Upon completion of tasks some students will interview each other to discuss which strategy they used and why and how they used it. Others will create an avatar cartoon video or a song to share their strategy for solving subtraction problems.
