Subtraction Bowling

How did I not ever think about teaching subtraction with bowling?!?! I was searching the internet for new subtraction ideas because my little ones just weren't getting it and I came across this idea that was posted 7 years ago. So I borrowed bowling sets from my PE teacher and then created a recording sheet and oh boy did we have fun! They loved it and I think they finally "got it"! Get your free copy here!

What are some of your great ideas for teaching addition & subtraction?

I read the title of this post and my exact thought was: "How did I not ever think about teaching subtraction with bowling?" I obviously burst out loud when I read the first sentence of the post! There's a bowling set at Oriental Trading that I've had my eye on and now I have a reason to buy it! I'm now your newest follower!
