Subtraction Worksheets - Pictures

Using pictures to subtract is great for your children. It’s engaging and students begin to develop subtraction strategies naturally. When subtracting pictures, a good strategy to teach your class is to cross out pictures and see how many are left. Give it a go!

Subtraction Worksheets - Numbers

When students become more confident, they will begin to move away from pictures and subtract with numbers. It is important that students can count backwards, however, it’s also vital to teach young children that addition and subtraction go hand in hand. If they can add to the number (rather than take away), they’ll have a fantastic subtraction strategy that will help them in future grades when subtraction problems get tricky!
