Display the image pictured in the sidebar, *Balloons*, to children. Prompt children to tell addition and subtraction stories about the picture by asking questions such as, “How many balloons are there?”, “How many flew away?” or “What would happen if two more balloons flew away?”

- The Math Pal had 7 balloons and 2 flew away. Now there are only 5 balloons left.
- If 2 more balloons get away, the Math Pal will have only 3 balloons left.
- The Math Pal is holding 4 yellow balloons and one red balloon. Before any balloons floated away, the Math Pal was holding 4 yellow balloons and 3 red balloons.
