Last week, we talked about the concept of subtraction. Subtraction can be difficult for little first graders, especially the just turned 6 years old, to understand subtraction so I tried to find different ways to go about it. I read some books to the class:

We talked about how subtraction means to take away or separate a whole into parts. I created an anchor chart about subtraction sentences. (Thank you pinterest!)

Some other supplemental activities we did were (all ideas found on pinterest):
Ways to Break 6, 7, 8, and 9
