Collaborating in Maths - Subtraction

Last Friday the Preps were very lucky to have a Maths session with the Junior students. They wanted to teach us about Subtraction. Each Junior student had made a poster showing their understanding of what subtraction is. Mrs Klein and Tom showed us a new game on the IWB using a number line. You could use addition or subtraction to play the game. 

Then we broke up into small groups with Preps, Grade Ones and Grade Twos to play lots of subtraction games. 

It was wonderful to see the Preps learning with the Juniors and to see how supportive the Juniors were. The Preps were so excited to learn new games and practise their skills in Maths. Well done everyone and a big thank you to Mrs Klein for a great idea and for all your organisation.

  1. It is so great that you have some of the older kids to help you with your learning and share their thoughts/ways in how they do things and remember things. Next year you will be the Juniors helping the Preps - how exciting. Suzi

  2. Thank you Grade 1's and 2's for teaching us about subtraction. We all worked very hard. I really enjoyed the number line game.

  3. What a great way to learn about subtraction! I loved the posters.
    It also helps you get to know some of your class mates for next year! Keep subtracting!

  4. Although you learnt about subtraction, you added to your learning! Keep up the good work by multiplying these experiences even if you have to divide into groups. From James Dad!!
