Subtraction Worksheets for Kids

Taught immediately after kids learn to solve addition problems, subtraction is an essential skill that kids need to master. Subtraction worksheets are a great resource for parents and teachers who are on the lookout for ways to help kids grasp this concept.

Teaching Subtraction is Easy with Worksheets

Initially, most kids learn that subtraction is basically the reverse of addition. Once kids establish the relationship between addition and subtraction, it is easy for them to grasp the concept and solve simple subtraction problems.

Some kids might find subtraction difficult. If they are unable to understand the concept of carrying over, they can be intimidated by subtraction. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that at every step, kids know what they are doing. Identifying their areas of difficulties and helping them overcome it before moving on to tougher problems will help them immensely.

When parents and teachers first introduce kids to subtraction, it is best to do so using real-world problems and objects. For example, give kids 10 chocolates, take 2 away, and ask them how many are left.

There are many kinds of subtraction worksheets available online. From simple, numerical problems to more complex word problems, worksheets include a variety of questions. Teachers and parents can choose age-appropriate worksheets and get the little ones started on them.
