These Heidisongs worksheets are intended to help children follow up and practice their newly formed subtraction skills. They were developed specifically for Kindergartners by a Kindergarten teacher, but of course may be used with any children that need this type of reinforcement for subtraction skills. These worksheets may also be perfect for that special needs child that requires a worksheet with just a few problems on it, rather than 30 or 40 of the same thing over and over again.
Most of the worksheets have only five or six equations on them, since children that are just learning are typically a bit slow at completing them. Also, you will notice that the majority of the worksheets have spaces for the children to draw pictures to help them find the answers. For example, there may be a large box with the equation “4 - 3 = __” in it. In this case, the children are taught to draw four things, (usually circles,) and then cross out three of them. Then they count the ones that are left, and write the answer in the box.
