Subtraction Bowling

We have been working with different manipulatives to become comfortable with composing and decomposing numbers.My kinders have really enjoyed bowling to see how amounts can increase and decrease. Michelle at Inspired by Kindergarten has a great freebie to go with this game!!! 

We didn't use the sheet until the students felt comfy with telling me how they were solving how many pins remained up. Then, they began recording it together and discussing how to record. Lastly, the game became a partner activity with desk versions of bowling. So much fun!!!

I comment whenever I especially enjoy a post on a
blog or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the
conversation. It is a result of the passion displayed in the post I read.
And after this post "Subtraction Bowling". I was actually moved enough to post
a thought :-) I do have a couple of questions for
you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or do a few of these responses appear like
written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing
on additional places, I would like to follow anything new you have to post.
Would you list all of your social sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page
or linkedin profile?
