How to Learn Subtraction Facts

 

Do your students know their subtraction facts? 


How to you track what math facts students know? 







Having students keep track of their Math facts doesn't have to be hard. There are some organization tools you can use to help your students master their subtraction facts. Let's look at the best way to learn math facts for kids.  


How to Learn Subtraction Facts


Learning subtraction math facts is a process. Let's look at the progression of Subtraction Math Facts. At the beginning of Kindergarten students are learning to count to 20 and may know some of the 1s facts. By the end of Kindergarten students should be able to fluently subtract within 5. By the end of 1st grade students should know most of their addition facts too. 

Subtraction Flash Cards


Practicing with flash cards helps focus on small math tasks.

There are many ways to get students to master math facts. One way is with flash cards for student practice. Students can practice at their own pace and focus on three, five, or seven math facts at a time. Once they master those, pick more to work on. These Subtraction to 20 math flash cards are 3.5 x 5 inches. You can print and place them in a photo (task card) box for easy storage. 

Subtraction Games


Playing math games is fun and engaging for students.

Another way students can learn math facts is with games. Learning through play is one of the best methods to memorize math facts. Subtraction to 20 math games are printable with playing cards and counting bears included. Students can choose from 11 different math mats to play. Easy to put at a math center or have a Friday game day with the whole class! Engaging students with games will motivate students to enjoy math and master their math facts at the same time.

Subtraction Worksheets



For students who are visual and concrete learners, working with worksheets and manipulatives is best. The Subtraction to 20 worksheets go through the levels of math addition to mastery. Try using worksheets with 20 or less problems. Students should be able to finish the worksheet of 20 problems in less than 10 minutes. If it takes the student longer you can break up the assignment and only highlight the problems they need to practice first. Allow them to come back to the other problems later and work on those. 

Learning subtraction math facts can be quick and easy. Help and motivate students with an easy math facts checklist. This will help students keep track of what subtraction facts they know and what they need to know.

3 Ways You Should Use Math Stations


Do you use Math Stations in your middle school classroom? Do you have your students practice working independently in your class? Do you facilitate or teach more? There are many reasons you should start using them today!




3 Ways You Should Use Math Stations


1. Students become independent learners.
Middle School students want to prove they are older and independent. They ask for tasks that they can work on by themselves or with a partner. When planning math lessons its always important to have a component of independence for the students. You can do this with math workshops. Set the students up for success with a rotation plan to complete all the tasks. Give explicit instructions and watch them achieve success. 

2. Students develop collaborating skills.
Kids learn to work together in groups. Either with a partner or up to 3 other students. This helps them learn how to problem solve and see a problem from another person's perspective. 

3. Students grow in math proficiency.
Ultimately the goal is to help students. Help your students by using math stations weekly or biweekly in the classroom. Math stations are great for reviewing concepts and practicing skills.  




The Math Stations 101 Guide is a must read eBook of how to implement Math Stations in your classroom. Teachers who have read it and implemented math stations in their classrooms said: 

"This resource helped me get started with learning centers in my classroom...thank you!!" -Nicole

"I never knew all the steps to create station but now I do! It was very simple to do because of the specific instructions. Thanks for that." -Tracey

"I am thinking about starting math stations with my middle school classes and this is going to be a great help. Thanks." -Lisa


Math Workshops can work in your classroom too. Giving your students the opportunity to learn and be independent will help their math development. Try one today! Click HERE to download a free math workshops guide and stations activities.
