Subtract means to "take away" so the number will be smaller. We have looked at different strategies in class for subtracting; 


  • Using fingers, for example, 10-5= show 10 fingers, put 5 down, count how many are left. 
  • Using drawings and crossing out. (See example below)
  • Using objects, 9-4= counting out 9 lego blocks, putting 4 back, counting how many are left.
