Addition and subtraction are definitely my favorite concepts to teach. It really is so much fun! I especially love using stories to go along with the lessons because they really help to provide a real-world context for solving problems we made up our own addition stories and drew them on chart paper. The kids took turns telling the stories using words and then writing the number sentences. Then we made our own class book of addition stories!
We paint one addition of four and tell its story.
Paint and tell the story of five addition.
This fairy tale was for number 6 but my students wanted to do it for numbers 4 and 5 so I let them to express them selves. They like 5 very much,I cant understand why.
