Reflection: Solving Subtraction Number Stories- Writing the Answer Day 2 - Section 3: Practice

I set up centers so that the students complete a different center each day, and they are usually able to complete each center twice before I change the centers.  This has been tricky when setting up centers for the beginning of a unit.  At the beginning of the addition unit, I included addition centers, and it ended up being a lot of trouble.  I needed to work with those tables every day instead of pulling groups.  For this unit, I decided to just do review centers for the first two weeks of subtraction.  Several of these are addition centers.  I did this intentionally because I wanted the students to keep practicing adding while we started the next unit, but now I am wondering if this is going to get too confusing for the students as we delve deeper into subtraction.  The students did fine today, but I think it is something that I need to keep an eye on especially as we get into subtraction equations.
