Subtraction

This week we will be touching on subtraction! This will be new to many students so I wanted to provide parents with some ideas for practice at home.


Here is a simple link to have your student watch at home.

You can also help by providing your student with different problems at home. Use items such as books. cans, spoons etc as models.

For example: Ask the child what is 7 - 3. Then have them show seven of the objects and then tell them to take three away. As a way to help reinforce the idea have them write out the problem with numbers as well.


Hope this helps :)
