## Reflection: Joy Subtracting from 5 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

My students love to sing and they love the little videos online that go along with songs.  It is a great way to get the students motivated to start a lesson.  It is a great transition for my students between recess and math.  We ended up listening to the Little Frogs song about 5 times today during this lesson and after!

# Subtracting from 5

Unit 7: Subtraction
Lesson 9 of 19

## Big Idea: We have 10 fingers, so when learning to subtract starting with a number less than 10 or equal to 10, students can use their fingers to help them. Manipulatives and drawings are helpful too!
