Shortly after I made my Addition Strategies pack, I knew that subtraction would follow soon. I mean, we all need a little help with that tricky minus sign, right?! Well, it only took me a year to mark this ditty off of my to-do list. Life just sometimes gets in the way, ya know?!
But, alas, it’s finally done and I *may* be ready to tackle subtraction this year (after I finish thoroughly enjoying my summer vacation that is!)
I actually had a lot of fun creating this little guy because I was finally able to channel some inner creativity. Don’t get me wrong… I’m super thankful for my handwriting and spelling units because they will save me a ton of time throughout the year BUT they were brutal to put together!
I’m going to break down what’s inside, so stick with me 🙂
Oh, and I also have a FREEBIE for you! Here are a few math printables that will go along great with my subtraction and addition units!

Directed Drawing Tip: Have students draw on half sheets of paper, index cards, or something similar. Then they don’t take up quite as much space. In this pic, my students worked together to retell the story, then we added both of their drawings to the display!
