  • Take 2 Away (0-10)

    Test your students ability to subtract by reviewing the pictures of sea creatures and "take 2 away" by crossing two out. Then they note how many sea creatures are left.

  • Take 3 Away (0-10)

    After counting the number of flowers in the garden, children subtract three by crossing them out, then count the difference.

  • Take 4 Away (0-10)

    In this worksheet your students look at the pictures of animals and "take 4 away" by crossing them out. Then they can count how many animals are left.

  • Take 5 Away (0-10)
