Subtraction for Kids

Children begin to grasp the concept of subtraction early on, possibly even before they go to school. They learn to subtract through informal acts such as sharing a cookie or a toy, losing privileges when they’ve been naughty and losing buttons from clothes. While subtraction is easy enough to learn in practice, teaching kids the theory behind it might not be as easy.

Before You Use Subtraction Worksheets

Before you give your child subtraction worksheets, make sure he is ready to begin subtraction. Here are a few things you can do to simplify subtraction problems for your child:

  • Make sure your child knows his numbers backwards and forwards.
  • Learning subtraction is impossible without having a solid grounding in addition. Ensure he can add numbers before moving on to subtraction.
  • Introduce subtraction through manipulatives and concrete objects.
