How to tech Subtraction: First Grade and Kindergarten

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.
