Addition Problem Solving

I introduced problem solving today. First we acted out story problems using chairs and our bodies. We pretended that the chairs were the swings on a playground. Some children were swinging and some children where pushing and sometimes other children were playing in the sandbox. We counted all the children acting out the story problem to find the answer. Then, we used a swing set story mat and counters to solve other story problems. Finally, we made up, illustrated and solved our own story problems in our math journal.

4 + 2 = 6

4 + 3 = 7
