Writing Math Stories

We've been learning about Snow Leopards in class this week. My students have loved learning about their habitat and how they survive cold conditions. We began thinking about their spots and camouflage which naturally led to counting spots and viola! Addition stories! 

We pretended we were on a photography hunt and drew a photograph we would take. Then we counted the spots and imagined how many spots we couldn't see in our "photo" - instant double digit addition stories!
