Throughout the year students have been building fluency with addition and subtraction within 10. Students often find subtraction more difficult than addition because it does not relate to counting as clearly. The purpose of this lesson is to highlight and have students utilize the relationship between addition and subtraction (MP7) and for students to practice differences within 10 that they do not yet know with fluency.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 3, Section A in the curriculum materials.
