Today we read “10 Blue Things”. Then we were presented with the problem: A baker has 10 sprinkles to decorate 2 cupcakes. What are all of the different combinations that he could use?”
We read the math book My Little House. Then we used a paper plate to represent a house and 10 counters to represent people. We used a spinner and kept track of how many sons it took to get the people in the house!
Today the students used this bakery poster to create subtraction stories. For instance, “I bought 4 cupcakes. I ate 2. 4-2=2”. We created addition stories earlier this week.
