Subtraction Fluency Practice

There are two colored subtraction mats and 64 subtraction cards. You can laminate these mats and print the subtraction cards on colored paper for variation if you wish. To save on ink, the mats can also be printed and placed in a sheet protector or a dry erase pouch. Then have the student use a dry erase marker to complete the activity. These mats are great for review, independent seat work, math centers, and morning work.


1.Print and cut mats and subtraction cards.

2.Students will practice subtraction facts through 10 by finding the difference.

3.Place a subtraction card on the center of the mat. Students will use counters to create the equation in the ten-frame section to find the difference.

4.Finally students will use a dry erase marker and write the complete subtraction sentence on the lines at the bottom of the mat.

5.Erase the problems and repeat the same steps with another number card.

You can also find the Circus 10 Frame Addition Mats here.

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Determine the unknown whole number in an addition or subtraction equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 + ? = 11, 5 = ▯ - 3, 6 + 6 = ▯.
Add and subtract within 20, demonstrating fluency for addition and subtraction within 10. Use strategies such as counting on; making ten (e.g., 8 + 6 = 8 + 2 + 4 = 10 + 4 = 14); decomposing a number leading to a ten (e.g., 13 - 4 = 13 - 3 - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9); using the relationship between addition and subtraction (e.g., knowing that 8 + 4 = 12, one knows 12 - 8 = 4); and creating equivalent but easier or known sums (e.g., adding 6 + 7 by creating the known equivalent 6 + 6 + 1 = 12 + 1 = 13).
Understand subtraction as an unknown-addend problem. For example, subtract 10 – 8 by finding the number that makes 10 when added to 8.
Fluently add and subtract within 5.
Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds (e.g., claps), acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations.
