This week, we are starting to think about the new math concept, subtraction. During our morning meeting we asked the question, "what is subtraction?" Children thought about what they know about subtraction, as well as reflecting on other math concepts, comparing subtraction to addition, patterns, and symmetry. Children thought about math, and what we have learned thus far this year in math. During work times this week, we will be working on our Subtraction Worksheet. When working on this worksheet, children are practicing identifying the numbers they see on the sheet, counting out the unifix cubes, and writing the numbers that they count. Purple Room children are extremely interested in worksheets, in fact today, there were many children waiting to work with a teacher on completing the sheet!
