Piggy Bank Subtraction Fun






I think this is so cute. We just got back from a trip to the farm but I do not do a big unit on this since it does not align to my reading program. I try to only have one theme going on in the room to build their vocabulary and background of knowledge. However, my partner and I want them to have a better understanding of subtraction so we came up with this idea... Any other great ideas? I would love to know about them.

Okay- I was not expecting you to want this so I am making it a download. Here are the conditions (haha)
Please have five friends follow me and leave a comment if you would like to. Click here for the mats and piggies. If you want the little recording book I am also providing that. Remember to run it off just like the other strip book (see earlier post) and enjoy using it.  Click here for your piggy booklet. You can post my button on your blog as a way of saying thanks!

Simply ADORABLE, Fran!!! I ♥ it!! I'm sure you could use it for any theme! We're doing Ocean next week! Maybe I could tape a shark inside of the cup and have him eat up the fish:)

Sooo PERFECT!! I blogged about this, but my computer was being rotten and I could not get your button to post... ERR! I am certain it was operator error. Thank you for all of your Kinder-wonderful ideas and resources!

Dear Deedee,

Fran, I don't have a teaching blog yet, but it is on my todo list. I am the grade level chair and at our grade level meeting on Tuesday I shared your site with my 7 other fellow kinder teachers and invited them to take a peek to see how awesome you are! Thanks for all the cute stuff and I am so willing to buy more maps when you put them on TPT.
