# Beginning Math - Subtraction

This lesson plan consists of beginning subtraction problems for kindergarten students.

First, you will show the students how to subtract by giving them examples.

Take out four balls. Put four balls in one pile. Take away one ball. Ask a student how many balls are left. Then, you can write the problem out and illustrate it with the balls again to show the students how to subtract. 4 balls - 1 ball = 3 balls

You can do this with different problems a few times before you give the students the worksheet.
