Kindergarten classes came into the library the week before Thanksgiving break and we had a ball working on number recognition and subtraction.
Students were given 'fresh-baked', laminated pumpkin pies that each bore a number from 1 to 10. After determining their number, students used kitchen tongs to place whip cream dollops (ok, so it was really cotton balls) on top of their pie!
Then, from the oven, came some tricky pies! These pies had subtraction problems on them that used numbers from 1 to 10.
They did a fantastic job solving those tricky pies and showed several strategies for finding the answer to subtraction problems.
