Subtraction worksheets help a child learn the skills required for subtraction. It also gives you, as a parent or teacher, an opportunity to understand how much he has grasped and what the best way of making him learn more will be. Subtraction is integral in math and it is something children will be using all their lives. There are various levels of subtraction worksheets available which match the skill levels of different children. Creating worksheets for children involves creativity to make it look like a fun thing to do and at the same it should serve its educational purposes. There are many websites which have free subtraction worksheets available which you can download or print for free. Choose a worksheet that has problems suited to the child or children you want it for.
If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least brain-friendly. This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
Remember that this age group also needs lots of counting, sorting, grouping, patterning, classifying and ordering activities. This will help in their mathematical understanding if they have been given the opportunity to explore all of these concepts. Simple activities like sorting buttons, putting away the shopping, threading colored straws, collecting and sorting things from the garden and lining books in the shelf from tallest to shortest are all ways in which these concepts can be reinforced at home. Do not underestimate the impact of Singing games like 5 little ducks went out one day and 5 speckled frogs sitting on a speckled log in the teaching of these concepts to young children. Maths concepts can be part of a large variety of everyday children has learning experiences. When the experience is relevant to them, they are more likely to retain the information and optimum learning takes place. There are also many software programs or online Maths sites that can help your pre-schooler learn the basics of Maths in a fun and visual way. Maths can be lots of fun and learning through play is relevant and meaningful for this age group.
