## Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Subtracting from 6 - Section 2: Presentation of Lesson

I used a different version of Five Little Ducks for this lesson than I usually use.  We have read Five Little Ducks several times this year between ELA and Math lessons.  I tried to mix it up a bit with a different version, but I don't think this was the best one for this lesson.  The ducks in several of the pictures were hard to count and it was hard to see that one duck was leaving on each page because some illustrations still showed the duck there even though it was saying he wasn't.  I still like the idea of using Five Little Ducks for this lesson, but I am looking for a version with better pictures to use of this lesson.

# Subtracting from 6

Unit 7: Subtraction
Lesson 10 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!
