What is Subtraction?
Subtraction is the removal of objects from a collection. So you start with three objects and take one of the objects away and you have two remaining.
The equation for subtraction would look like 3 – 1 = 2.
The subtraction flashcards have 8 subtraction cards on one page. They are in order from 1 to 10. They show all the ways to do subtraction from that number.
There are 5 color options for the printable subtraction flashcards. You have white, red, blue, green, and pink. Each of the colors is a fun way to use a color they like.
These subtraction flashcards work great for kindergarten and first grade.

Ways to Use the Subtraction Flashcards Printable
You can work on memorizing subtraction math facts with flashcards, but you don’t have to do just that. You can change up how you use the cards.
Store Subtraction Flashcards on a Ring
One way you can use the white version of the subtraction flashcards is to print it on color cardstock. Then you can use any mix of colors you want. You can also see that I put them on a ring. The ring helps keep them together. We reuse a lot of our rings. You can also flip through the subtraction flashcards on a ring to review their subtraction facts.
Subtraction Flaschards with Unfix Cubes
You can pull out unifix cubes. I like to match the cube color the color of the subtraction flashcards to make it fun. They can count the total at the start then remove the number they are subtracting to make the answer.
Subtraction Flaschards with Mini Erasers
You can also use mini eraser with the subtraction cards. I use these a lot. I grab ours at the Target dollar section. Well worth it because I can change it up for each season! You could also use glass gems and change those up during the season.
Subtraction Flashcards with Number Bond Mat
These cards are also great with the help mats. I have one of the subtraction number bond mats below. You can see how we used the card to fill out the help mat.
You never have to use a flashcard just one way! Keep that in mind when you use them!
