Prime is back, this time teaching basic subtraction, including the
definition of 'difference', how to write an equation, regrouping, and
more. A trip to the school fair then provides fun practical
applications. It's "a zany book that is sure to make a difference!" (School Library Journal)
This book is a solid choice for your classroom library or for small group work--for students have some familiarity with subtraction (the pages are too busy for early introductions).
The format makes it difficult to use this book as a read aloud, unless you have a document camera to project the images on a screen or you can bring your students in quite close.
Level: Kindergarten-Grade 2
Guided Reading Level: K
DRA Level: 18
Lexile Measure: 440L
Here are sample spreads from inside Subtraction
Action, illustrated and laid
out in Leedy's
trademark style. As you can see, the pages are in comic book style,
with a lot happening on each page. If you use
this as a read aloud, it'd also be helpful to put it in your classroom
library so students can pick up all the small details they perhaps
couldn't see when you read it aloud.
