It’s SmorgieVision time!!!!!   
Today I’m showing you how we use a favorite children’s book to introduce the concept of subtraction!
We read the story Five Little Monkeys Jumping On The Bed and talk about taking away!
We act out the story!
Then we use our coconut tree and practice taking away the monkeys!
We make our monkey subtraction anchor chart as we practice our subtraction! 
(Um, don’t judge my amazing artisitic abilities to draw mustache monkeys! hehe)
And yes, Mr. Greg dresses as a monkey.  Because you can’t do five little monkeys if you’re not a monkey!
Thanks to my friend Susanna at Whimsy Workshop for the amazing mustache monkey clip art!
Here’s a fun monkey subtraction freebie for ya!
