Students Making Their Own Subtraction Sentences!

I want to share with you a simple subtraction idea that my students thought of using the Ocean Language Arts and Math Centers that I had out.  They thought of it during free time on their own, and I turned it into a math center for the whole class to do!
It’s soooo simple!  They took the sea animal cards that were lamintated for an addition math center, used one of the cards to cross out some of the animals, and then turned it into a subtraction sentence.

They were so excited about their discovery, and would cross out some of the sea animals and ask their friend to write the subtraction sentence.  It makes my heart happy to see 5 year olds take initiative in their own learning… do I sense a little Common Core happening here?? 😉
