We acted out Hungry Shark and practiced subtraction stories. Then we played a game with goldfish crackers where we spun the fish spinner to determine the number of goldfish we need and then spun the shark spinner to determine how many fish were eaten. Then we wrote the subtraction sentences.
We read In The Deep Blue Sea by Deanna Jump. We created a tree map of adjectives, nouns, and verbs from the story. Then students responded through writing by using the pattern from the story.
