When we come back from Spring break on Tuesday, we are beginning our subtraction unit.
CC6 Identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group (matching and counting strategies) is also one of our standards for 4th quarter. So, it's the perfect time to explore the matching strategy. "Who has more?" is an easy concept at this time for most kindergarteners, but I want to push them to figure out the "How many more?" That's where the matching strategy comes in. I have an activity/assessment pack for CC6. Click here to see it. (BTW, I have having a ONE DAY ONLY SALE) But, although the activity is a matching strategy activity, the assessments don't use the matching strategy. So I created this freebie. It includes some activities/assessment you can use for the matching strategy. And, at the end, it has 5-6 pages of word problems (Compare Difference Unknown) that can be used to facilitate the teaching of the matching strategy. Below are some pictures. Happy Matching!
