Ten Sly Piranhas: Subtraction with Goldfish Crackers

Class members listen to the William Wise book Ten Sly Piranhas and act out the story with one child playing the piranha. They use goldfish crackers (eating them to show subtraction) to demonstrate and understand equations they see on flashcards. A visceral, and yummy, way to teach subtraction.

Lesson Planet has made giving my English lessons so much easier. I can go on Lesson Planet and prepare lessons for my Japanese students with ease and save my lessons for future use. I am new to Lesson Planet, but have found it to be very useful.
