Subtraction Fluency Games | Subtraction Math Centres


Product Details

Fun games to help your students become fluent when subtracting single digit numbers from 2-digit numbers and beyond! This resource is designed to provide your students with a hands-on activity to assist in building subtraction fluency skills. As your students use this resource, they will also begin to notice patterns which will in turn assist with fluency.

These games can be used for the whole class, as components of numeracy rotations, intervention activities in small groups to support or to extend students or at home for distance learning.

How the game works:

Games can be played with a partner or individually. Students flip a playing card and place it in the box. Then they minus the card number with the number in the box, finally they place a counter on the answer.

The winner could be: The first to cover all the answers OR the first to cover an answer 4 times.


We have included 27 different game-boards to help you differentiate easily. Ask students to work on different subtraction facts according to their ability. Start students with the decade numbers (10, 20, 30 etc) then move onto board where students have to bridge across the decade to solve the subtraction problem.

The 3 hundred versions have been included to challenge students further once they are confident in subtracting a single digit from a 2-digit number.

You could also encourage more capable students to time themselves and try to beat their personal best.
