Interactive and Printable Preschool Math Subtraction Worksheets for Children Ages 3-5
We are now going to teach your child how to Take 3 Away, in these kindergarten subtraction worksheets. By now, you should be giving your child lots of practical experience in taking away, whether you are using counters, snacks, fruit, or any simple objects that are used throughout your day.
So let's find out how to subtract number 3, but before you continue, you will need to have completed both Take 1 Away and Take 2 Away.
The number line appears regularly throughout this page. Encourage your child to keep using it, until they are really confident it's no longer required.
Below are five questions where your child needs to tick the box where there are 3 Fewer. It could be either the box on the left or the right hand side. It's also a good idea to teach them about the objects, so as to increase their vocabulary and to make learning fun.
As you and your child work through these questions, use the terms "what is the difference" and "3 fewer" regularly.
Good luck with the exercises and remember to keep doing lots of practical exercises with them as well.
Print out the math subtraction worksheet to your left and firstly, ask your child to color in the objects. We have flowers, bees and some snails sitting on a leaf. Remember, learning is fun.
Now, for each question, your child needs to cross 3 out, count how many are left and to write the answer in the box.
It's also a good idea to read out aloud each question, so they understand there is a subtraction question that is to be answered.
Below your child will see some very colorful objects. He or she needs to count the number of objects on the left, count the number of objects on the right, and subtract right from left.
In the example below, we can see 4 flowers take away 3 flowers. 4 take away 3 makes 1.
Remember that your child should use the number line. For this example we would start at 4, then jump 3 to the left, and finally land on 1. 1 is the answer. There are 8 questions below. Take your time, and keep it fun for your child.
We've now progressed to the final exercise on this page. We have changed the objects for numbers. There are just 8 questions for your child to work through. Hopefully by now your child will have learnt about 0 or "nothing". If not, please make sure he or she understands the concept of having nothing left.
