This set of hands-on subtraction activities will get your students practicing subtraction facts within 20 while they have fun cutting and pasting.

Your students will practice subtraction facts within 20 in three different ways:

  • answering subtraction facts
  • sorting subtraction facts by the answer
  • sorting subtraction facts into true and false

These engaging subtraction activities will give your students the practice they need to develop subtraction fact fluency. They will be motivated and excited to practice subtraction facts with these engaging cut and paste activities.

You’ll also receive a digital version of each activity. Instead of cutting and pasting, students will complete the activities by dragging moveable pieces (the numbers or facts) to the correct spaces. The digital activities can be assigned using the Easel by TpT Tool.

Use Subtraction Cut and Paste as a math center station, as an activity for fast finishers or as a fun subtraction homework task.

These cut and paste activities are also great for supporting students who need a little extra practice in order to develop subtraction fact fluency.

This set of cut and paste activities is recommended for first grade and second grade but may be suitable for children in other year levels. Please download the preview to determine if this activity is suitable for your students.

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).
