Today we figured out a creative way to get preschoolers doing subtraction & to eat a soup they aren't too excited about. First she was allowed to pick out 6 croutons out of the bag & drop them into her soup. Then she started to eat them one at a time at the same time she was doing the subtractions & was SO proud of herself. But by crouton #2 she decided it wasn't worth eating the soup & just told me what it would be if she made them disappear. Oh well it was worth trying!
