#### Storyboard Text

• Hello class! Today we are going to talk about integers.﻿
• ﻿Does anybody know what 5-7 is?
• That was a good guess ﻿Vanessa, but actually the answer is -2!
• That's easy Mr. Jacobs! The answer is 2!﻿
• Huh?! James why is that???
• ﻿Well I think when you subtracted you automatically took the smaller number from the bigger number right? When Mr. Jacobs asked what 5-7 is, he is asking us to take 7 copies of one from 5 copies of one.
• ﻿I don't understand, there is not enough to take away though?
• Yes! Thank-you so much Wes, I understand now.﻿
• I can help you Vanessa! We know 7 is not enough to take away from 5, so we take away the 5 and 2 more. After we take away 7, we have -2 left. Does that make sense?
• Yeah, thanks guys!﻿
• Boys, notice the way you helped Vanessa without making her feel bad, that is great team-building! I am proud of you all.
