Guided Reading


Yesterday, you picked out some words that you weren't sure of. 


Today, I would like you to look up these two words.  They are a little tricky and I would like to know what they mean. 


Put your meanings on the blog so I can see what you have found out.

What was your favourite fact?



Today we are going to try and find some missing numbers. 


12 - __ = 8


We can see that we started with 12 and we took a number away to leave us with 8.

What number did we take away? 

How can we find out? 




We can turn this question around.  

We can take away the answer and it will leave the number in the middle. 


Try this with these questions below. 


15  -  ___ = 4            try       15 - 4 =       Now put the answer into the missing space and check it works.



18  -  ___ = 5            try       18 - 5 =       Now put the answer into the missing space and check it works.


Now try these questions below:
