I hope it is as good as it looks:)
So tomorrow is my first observation! I was supposed to have it last week but the person who is observing me had something else that came up she had to do. So, tomorrow it is. I am introducing subtraction across zero...something the kids ALWAYS struggle with! I am hoping they get it tomorrow!
So with the Common Core, students are being asked to write to explain! I want the students to be able to explain how to subtract across zero and show me how to solve a problem. So here is my plan!
I found this awesome YouTube video with a "squaring off" method that I just love. And what I really like about it is...there is a part of the video a kid explains HOW to do it! Perfect!
We will practice a problem together. Then I am going to give each pair of partners a subtraction word problem since we have been working on word problem strategies!
|Thank you Ms. Winston for these strategies!|
So here are my word problems! I made 10 of them for students to work on groups of two. I plan on making a few more!
I would LOVE 2 people to take a look at my word problems and proof them! then I will send you the final copy for free! Please only offer of you can do it right away! Don't forget to leave me your email!
But...you can still WIN this for FREE! Try and guess my husband's birthday...it's this month...and how old he will be (in his 30's) and I will give it to you for free!
Have a great Sunday!
