Subtraction Action

Here are a few ideas and great math sites to practice some skills that are explored in third grade in the fall.

Buying a set of flash cards and using them nightly is a great way to master the basic addition and subtraction math facts. You can also use a regular deck of cards to practice facts. Just display two cards at a time for each player in the game of WAR. Add or Subtract the value of the two cards to determine who wins the play. Face cards can be used if they are given a value such as zero or ten.

Remember that it takes time and LOTS of practice to master the basic math facts.

In November, we will be focusing on regrouping with subtraction. Here is a poem that may be helpful:

More on top?
No need to stop.

More on the floor?
Go next door,
Get ten more.

Numbers the same?
Zero's the game.

Exactly how old are you, anyway?
