SK April 30th Adventure

Good morning friends! Happy Thursday! Yesterday we talked about our long vowel I and our long vowel O! Nice work! Today we will be reviewing our addition and subtraction facts, as well as our skip counting. Let’s get started!


Ms.Julia has included a picture of different objects on a tray. Take a close look at each item. How many objects are there?

Oh no! Some items have gone missing! Take a look…

How many objects were there on the first tray? Write that number down. Now count how many objects there are on the second tray. Write that number down beside the first number. Can you subtract the numbers? It will look like this….. 9 – 5 How many items were taken away? Use your fingers to help. That’s right! 4. Now, that you know, try to figure out the 4 objects that were taken away.


Collect different toys around the house to make your own mystery missing tray. Once you have all the toys, count how many you have, show it to someone in your family and then take a few toys away. Ask them what toys are missing? Count how many toys you started with and how many you have left. Make sure you write down your math question and your answers!


Click the link to play the subtraction facts board game! Ms. Julia has included one sheet of subtraction fact cards to give you an idea on how to make your own! The answer to the equation will be the number of spaces your marker uses.


Play skip counting baseball

It is like playing catch but as you are throwing a ball count by 2, 5 or 10. One person throws the ball and says ’10’. The other person catches the ball and throws the ball back saying ’20’. Keep going counting by 10 each time you throw the ball. How high can you get before you drop the ball? Keep practicing.

Count your change

Here is a fun way to practice your skip counting and learn about money too. Do you have any coins? Maybe your family has a jar of coins they keep somewhere. Can you find all the dimes (hint they have a sailboat on one side and a face on the other). A dime is 10 cents. Put all your dimes in a row and then count by 10’s. When you get to 100 that means you have 1 dollar. If you have more dimes keep counting and start back at 10. If you want to try something really tricky, try counting all your nickels (hint they have a beaver on one side and a face on the other side). A nickel is 5 cents, so line up your nickels and count by 5’s. Way to go!
