Overall rating 4 out of 54.3 (17 ratings)

Last updated 30 June 2014, created 13 April 2012, viewed 33,642

Two sheets of simple subtraction word problems using a variety of vocabulary, mainly TU - TU but with some 3 digit numbers. I used with low ability Year 4. The first page is slightly harder than the second page. I printed the appropriate sheet off for each group, cut them up and let the children cho More…ose which questions they wanted to stick in their book, draw a numberline for and answer - very motivating as they tried to be the one who had answered the most!

Not very child friendly, and lots of questions which are not actually word problems, just subtraction question written in words.

Ideal- does exactly what it says on the tin! Very easy to adapt to own needs.
