Why Lesson Planet?
What an activating lesson for examining subtraction! Using actual students standing at the front of the class as the numbers, a die is rolled and the number that appears directs how many students should sit down. Give individuals a handout of a button-down shirt to place buttons on, and then take designated numbers away. Using charts and fictional stories, kindergarteners begin to understand the concept of subtraction. This makes an exciting introductory lesson when addressing Common Core standards!
