This resource is aimed at pupils in junior/middle classes or SEN pupils at the beginning of work on subtraction of tens and units. It is based on subtraction without regrouping – units are subtracted from tens & units up to 19. Laminate all of the pages in the resource and cut up into fifty-four separate cards. Pupils should work out the sum on the left side of each card and place a clothes peg on the correct answer on the right of the card. The tens are coloured black and the units red to assist with the subtraction.
This activity is especially suitable for pupils who may not be able to write answers but can work out the subtraction sum. It is a way for them to demonstrate their understanding of subtraction without regrouping. It is also good for fine motor skills in the manipulation of the pegs onto the cards.
