Interactive and Printable Preschool Math Subtraction Worksheets for Children Ages 3-5
We're now ready to teach you and your child how to Take 4 Away in our kindergarten subtraction worksheets. Hopefully you'll have been doing lots of practical exercises to reinforce everything you've learnt so far, taking away 1, 2 and 3. So let's start learning how to subtract the number 4.
As with the previous pages, the number line regularly appears which will help your child to learn how to subtract numbers until he or she is confident they no longer require it.
Below are five questions. Each line shows two groups of objects, the first question showing delicious cup cakes. Compare the cup cakes on the right to the cup cakes on the left. Ask your child to tick the box for the side that has 4 fewer cup cakes than the other.
It's good to use vocabulary such as "4 fewer" and "what is the difference". Once your child has completed the question showing cup cakes, then complete the remaining four questions.
Print out the math subtraction worksheet to the left "Take 4 Away". It has 3 questions for your child to work through.
For each question ask your child to cross out 4 of the objects, then to count how many are left. Write the number in the box.
It's also useful for your child to color in the objects, so they understand learning is fun and it helps them keep their focus and attention.
We now have some questions where your child needs to count the number of objects on the left hand side, then take away the number of objects that are on the right hand side. So, in the example below, we have 5 love hearts take away 4 love hearts which makes 1.
So, for the above example, remember to teach your child to start from number 5, jumping to the left 4 times, and we eventually land on 1. Number 1 is the answer. Makes this lots of fun. This time we have 7 questions to work through.
Moving on to the last set of questions. We've replaced the objects with numbers. There are 7 questions to work through. Once complete, your child will have learnt how to "take 4 away".
Next, learn how to Take 5 Away.
