How to Teach Subtraction

Subtraction can be tricky for young learners, but with a little help and some fun subtraction worksheets, even the youngest mathematician can learn how to subtract. Try these helpful tips to get your child comfortable with subtraction:

  • Talk to your child about what the word "minus" means. If we say four "minus" two, we mean that we're taking away two from the number four. When you say "minus," you are subtracting, or taking away, from a number.
  • Use some visual aids to help illustrate the concept of subtraction for your child. Use counters, such as pieces of cereal or marbles, to show your child what subtraction looks like. For the equation 4 - 2 = 2, lay out four counters. Allow your child to count the entire number of counters displayed before showing your child that you are going to subtract two by taking them away. Have your child count the number of remaining counters to discover the answer to the equation.
  • Once you've tried a few subtraction problems with your child using counters, have your child try a problem from one of the subtraction worksheets using the counters. Supervise this process and lend assistance when needed.
  • Make sure to praise your child for his efforts and encourage regular subtraction practice. You can use any of our fun subtraction worksheets with your child to further your practice.
