This is a very easy to prepare activity for little ones to learn subtraction.
What you need:
How to make it:
How to play:
Read out the subtraction problem (for example “6-1”) and ask your kid to cut away 1 item from the paper. Then count how many left to find out the answer.
I always make a few of these and put them in my drawer. I give one out to my son to work on as his morning routine.
J loves this activity because he can use one of his favourite tools, the scissors. Sometimes I make up stories to go along with the pictures I drew or stamped, and he found them funny and would love to do more so he can listen to more stories.
Learning is fun and inexpensive.
