This is a visual poem to help students understand how subtraction works. The poem seems to rhyme, which can also make it easier for students to understand or remember. There are arrows pointing to the numbers to help students as well. - Lauren Davy
Love this idea! What's the number? Kids ask questions like Is the number greater than/less than....? Is the number between ___ and ___? Is the number in the tens place ____? etc. No two questions in a row can make the same comparison. Or students may ask in number sentences- - Is the number 5+1?
