Great Subtraction Videos for Mini-Lessons

Posted on December 12, 2010. Filed under: Digital Learners, Elementary math, Multiple Intelligences | Tags: , , , , |

Here are a few great videos for introducing subtraction.  I use these in the first part of the mini-lesson.  I  show these and then facilitate a discussion about the concept of subtraction.  These videos are good for building conceptual understanding.  I would then pull students into guided math groups and go further into activities that build conceptual understanding of subtraction.  I love the Farmer John Video.  This is a great way to act out subtraction up to ten with students.  These videos correlate with the common core operations and thinking domain for grades k,1 and 2.

Hi Dr. Nicki,
These videos are fabulous! I can’t explain how timely these are for the 1st grade teachers at my school. We have been struggling to find ways to introduce subtraction. Of course, I haven’t viewed each video, so I will probably comment again. I alos wanted you to know that guided math groups are really taking off in my school. the 4th, 5th, and 6th grade teachers are planning lessons with me with the resources from your blog. Yeah!!!!! Thank you for inspiring our staff!!!

Hey Lisa,

I was wondering about you. I was like I haven’t heard from Lisa lately! These videos are great! I love the King Minus one especially. BUT the LL Cool J addition one is the best! Good to hear from you:)

Happy Mathing,
