Grade 1

Headline Stories are open-ended situations that encourage children to become creative problem solvers. For this Headline Story, you might ask children questions, such as, “How many beads *could* be removed from the jar? How many were left?”

There were 5 beads in a jar. I took some out.

- If I removed 2 beads, there would be 3 left in the jar.
- If I removed 1 bead, there would be 4 left in the jar.
- If I removed 5 beads, there would be 0 left in the jar.
