Sample Flash Card
from Math Facts to the Max
There’s a new dance,
And it’s weird in fact,
It’s a kind of a way that you can subtract,
You move yourself backwards,
Gotta stay on track, can you Step Back?
First time around
We’re gonna take away 2,
Just pay attention and it’s easy to do
It’s time to find out
if you have the knack,
Can you Step Back? 7 . . . __, __,
Step Back: 11 . . . __, __,
Step Back: 10 . . . __, __,
This time around
We’re gonna take away 3 . . .
