Why Is It Helpful to Learn to Subtract with Blocks? Anything that you can touch, feel, see, or hold in your hand is always a better idea to make your learning easy. It helps in keeping things in mind for the longest time. While there are so many ways out there to teach your kids about subtraction and addition, one of the best ways is to let them see and observe things. Therefore, the idea of regrouping or borrowing is very important for students to understand. However, you can make this process of borrowing easy by introducing your kids to blocks in order for them to learn the concept of ‘taking away.' Use single blocks, base ten blocks, and base a hundred blocks to solve subtraction problems. For example, you have a problem; 10 - 4. To get the answer for this problem, use base ten blocks. Since the blocks are breakable, you can take away 4 blocks away from the base ten and then count the remaining blocks to get your answer. Now assume you have a bit more difficult problem at hand to solve. Use the base hundred blocks to solve it. These worksheets and lessons help guide students toward subtraction skills by working on problems that provide both images and numbers for the minuend and subtrahend.
