Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Subtraction Act it Out! - Section 3: Guided Practice

 

I chose to have the kids use their bodies to act out the subtraction problems to give them a deeper conceptual understanding. When they use their own bodies to act out the problems, they grasp the concepts quicker and more meaningfully. They also enjoy the movement which helps to it easier to grasp for them.
