Reflection: Coherence Same As Subtraction 1, 2, 3 - Section 2: Direct Instruction


It is important for kinders to understand the relationship between addition and subtraction. To encourage this, use manipulatives (including fingers) to examine the relationship between the two. You can also use number lines to demonstrate. Once the kids understand the relationship between addition and subtraction, a basic understanding of fact families can be introduced.  Teaching kids the relationship between addition and subtraction in the early years benefits the kids later in upper grades when relating multiplication and division.
