I introduced a new activity during number work today. We have been working on using the strategy to draw a picture to help solve addition and subtraction problems. The students take the dry erase board, marker and bag of numbers to their seat. They pull out one number and draw a shape that many times. Next, they put an addition sign and draw another number from the bag and draw that many shapes. They count on from the first number to the second and solve the addition problem!
