Additions, subtractions, multiplications, and divisions, are the four basic math operations. Needless to say, it's imperative that your child knows how to perform them successfully if they want to excel in their academic/professional/day-to-day life. To offer a helping hand in this respect, below you'll find ways to teach them about subtractions.

How to Introduce Your Child to Subtractions

Start with the Basics

For your child to subtract confidently, they first need to understand what subtractions are and what they'll use them for. Start out with the basics to make the rest of the process easier for them.

Count Backwards

Subtracting is much like counting backward. That's why, before you introduce the concept of subtraction, your child should feel comfortable counting forward and counting backward. If needed, utilize a number line to make this point clearer.

Use Small Objects

Small objects (like pencils or oranges) that your child can touch and move around will help them understand how subtractions work in a simpler way. Exemplify a few subtractions with said objects to make the concept less abstract.

Create Stories

Creating stories that have to do with subtracting can make your child's learning process simpler and more appealing to them. You can make up a story, for example, of a tiny mouse that eats pieces of cheese.

Employ Fact Families

Most children move on to subtractions once they know how to add correctly. If your child has acquired this skill, you can use that knowledge to help them learn to subtract. For instance, you can help them know that  1 + 6 = 7, and that 7 - 1 = 6.

Give Them Time

Something important to consider is that your child will learn at their own pace and that you should provide the attention and support they require. This means that you shouldn't pressure them to move on to more complicated operations if they're not ready.
