Level 3: Subtraction to Ten


Materials you need:

  1. 4group Math classroom kit

    • Mount your Number Parade and Ten-man Card on the wall at students’ eye level.
    • Store your Number Blocks where students can reach.
    • Open and notch your Cards. Store the decks in Zip-loc bags. (The boxes do not last.)
  2. At least two colors of multilink cubesthat connect on all sides (not Unifix cubes). Many schools already have these, or they can be purchased from EAI Education (We prefer the Linking Cubes from EAI Education. We find them to be the easiest for small hands to manipulate and they stay together.)

    • Sort and store your multilink cubes by color.
  3. Stickers; markers; pencils; crayons; plain paper; small candies, fish crackers or other small objects.
