Why is it that adding comes so much easier to kids? In all my years of teaching, I can honestly say I have only had one kiddo that thought subtraction was easier. Your kids will love this fun Patriotic Subtraction Mats activity perfect for  Presidents Day for Kids or to add to your list of 4th of July activities for kids.

Another way is to practice, is having children participating in expression sorts. Allowing children to participate in expression sorts builds their logic reasoning and can even prepare them for algebra.

It also helps children to begin to develop fluency in math. Though using manipulatives is an important part of learning addition and subtraction, it is also important that they begin to memorize basic addition and subtraction facts. Doing expression sorts numerous times allows children to become familiar with expressions and what they equal.

  • Print off the subtraction mats and expressions on cardstock paper
  • Cut out expression
  • Put a magnet on the back of expression and use a cookie tray or place Velcro on mats and expression
subtract with manipulatives

Decide what numbers you want your child or children to work on, and pull out those mats and the expressions that match.

Children solve the expression and place it on the correct mat.

If your child is struggling to solve the expression provide some manipulatives. Show them how to count manipulatives to match the first number in the expression. Next help them take away the correct number. Finally, show them how to count what is left and help them realize that this is the answer! As they become more confident subtracting with manipulatives, see what they can do on their own from memory.
