Subtract the Objects and Write the Answer (Printable PDFs with answer keys)

Subtracting with objects helps a child understand what it means to “take away.” In these worksheets, your kindergartener will visualize the subtraction problem and then write down the numerical answer.

Count the Objects, Write the Subtraction Equation, and Solve (Printable PDFs with answer keys)

Here you’ll find two different types of worksheets. First, your learner will practice crossing off objects and writing the answer to basic subtraction problems. Next, they’ll practice counting objects and writing the full subtraction problem before finding and writing the solution.

Subtract with Number Lines (Printable PDFs with answer keys)

Number lines help students visualize the relationship between numbers in order. Have them find the first number in the subtraction problem and place their pencil above it on the number line. Then, hop backward like a bunny the second number of times to find the solution to the problem!
