My teaching trick for the hop is a math trick! If you have students who are struggling with the concept of subtraction, this is a great hands on activity! Students roll out the starting number in play-dough balls. Then they "smash" the number that is subtracted. The number of play-doh balls left is the answer. It gives kiddos physical representation of the subtraction problem and they LOVE playing with play-dough! It's a win-win!
