STORY TIME
Let's Read!
WHO WAS THE STORY ABOUT?
WHAT HAPPENED IN THE STORY?
HOW MANY BUTTONS DID PETE THE CAT START WITH?
BUT THEN WHAT HAPPENED?
HOW MANY BUTTONS WERE LEFT?
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
IF THERE WERE 3 BUTTONS AND THEN 1 FELL
OFF, HOW MANY WERE LEFT?
WHAT DID YOU THINK WOULD HAPPEN NEXT?
So how many buttons did Pete have left?
Click me!
WHAT CAME AFTERWARDS?
All Pete had left was
his
Click me!
NOW LETS TRY OUR OWN BUTTON MATH

IF YOU GOT IT WRONG
If you have 4 buttons and
then you take away 1
button, that leaves 3
buttons
Lets try again!
4 MINUS 1 EQUALS 3, GREAT JOB SUBTRACTING!
 =

WHATS 10 MINUS 7? THATS RIGHT, ITS 7!
 =

7 4= 3
Great job
subtracting!
COMMON CORE STANDARDS
Mathematics: Grade Kindergarten
Counting & Cardinality
Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to
cardinality.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4.A
When counting objects, say the number names in the standard order, pairing each
object with one and only one number name and each number name with one and
only one object.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.4.B
Understand that the last number name said tells the number of objects counted.
The number of objects is the same regardless of their arrangement or the order in
which they were counted.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.CC.B.5
Count to answer "how many?" questions about as many as 20 things arranged in
a line, a rectangular array, or a circle, or as many as 10 things in a scattered
configuration; given a number from 120, count out that many objects.
Operations & Algebraic Thinking
Understand addition, and understand subtraction.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.2
Solve addition and subtraction word problems, and add and subtract within 10,
e.g., by using objects or drawings to represent the problem.
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.K.OA.A.5
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
