(7 went to 9) • The largest number (9) is at the end. • We ADD!!!**Can you do this one?**• 8 ______ 2 = 6 • Start at 8. • It gets smaller! (8 went to 6) • The largest number is at the beginning. • We SUBTRACT!!!**More challenges…**• 5 _____ 5 = 10 • 5 _____ 2 = 3 • 6 _____ 2 = 8 • 4 _____ 1 = 3**Adding**The number gets larger. The largest number is at the end. Clue words: in all together more Subtracting The number gets smaller. The largest number is in the beginning.
