If pacing is a challenge, consider consolidating Lessons 22 and 23 into one lesson and omitting the Problem Sets. Instead, have students create their own flashcards for +0 and +1 facts for Lesson 22 and +2 facts for Lesson 23. Students can mix up their flashcards and order them (e.g., 2 columns for Lesson 22 and 3 columns for Lesson 23), thinking of the answers as they go, or they can quiz each other.
Consider consolidating Topics G and H by using the following sequence of lessons.
Day 1: Lesson 25—Add to with change unknown math stories related to subtraction.
Day 2: Lesson 30—Add to with change unknown math stories related to subtraction.
Day 3: Consolidate Lessons 28 and 29—Take from and take apart math stories.
Day 4: Lesson 31—Take from with change unknown math stories.
Day 5: Lesson 32—Put together/take apart with addend unknown math stories.
If the above sequence is used, teach Lessons 26 and 27 at the beginning of Topic I (Lessons 33–37) where the number path is used as a strategy for decomposition. These changes will provide time to focus on the concept of subtraction through word problems before the lessons on strategies for decomposition.
Consider omitting the Problem Sets from Lessons 38 and 39. Instead, have students create their own flashcards for related subtraction facts to be used in the same manner as the addition flashcards mentioned above.
