Here is how teaching subtraction to kindergarten works:
- By using images to learn subtraction.
- Put a few apples on the table in front of your child.
- Count them: one, two, three, four.
- Explain that we can represent apples as numbers – four apples equals 4.
- Take away two apples.
- Count the remaining fruit once again: one, two.
- We took away two from four, and two are left.
- Now, let’s pretend apples are numbered: 4 – 2 = 2.
By this way we can teach a child subtraction.
