One Childhood, One Chance


I am learning to subtract by counting back.


This week we have been learning to subtract by counting back. In order to do this we have taught the children to hold the largest number in their head. They draw dots under the smaller number. They then tap their head and say the largest number and count back one number each time they cross a dot out. The number they say as they cross the last dot out is the answer. You may like to practise this at home.
