Subtraction means taking away something from a group or number. In these worksheets, you will need to look at the pictures and figure out how many items are being taken away.

For example, let’s say there are 5 Christmas presents in a box. If 2 of those presents are taken away, how many presents will be left? The answer is 3! So we can write a subtraction sentence: 5 – 2 = 3.

In these worksheets, you will see pictures of Christmas items like candy canes, ornaments, and gingerbread cookies. You will need to figure out how many of these items are being taken away and write the subtraction sentence to match.

To complete the worksheet, look at the picture in each box and figure out how many items are being taken away. Then write a subtraction sentence to match the picture.

For example, if you see a picture of 8 candy canes and 3 of them are being taken away, you can write the subtraction sentence: 8 – 3 = 5.

Remember, it’s okay to take your time and count carefully. If you get stuck, ask your teacher or a grown-up for help.
