Use Pictures to Add and Subtract
In this first standard, students will be introduced to addition and subtraction in a fun and visual way — using things like objects, fingers, sounds, expressions, and equations to better grasp this new and exciting concept.
Let's Add and Subtract
Students will begin adding and subtracting numbers 1 through 10. They will solve word problems using drawings and objects.
Make Bigger Numbers
Next, students will use their newfound knowledge of addition and subtraction to understand that different pairs of numbers can equal the same solution (e.g.: 2+3=5 and 1+4=5).
