Before youngsters begin subtracting, give them this visual introduction focusing on the term fewer. They examine three pairs of party-themed object sets to determine which has five fewer than the other. After checking off the fewer cupcakes, candies, and hats, they can color in these images for an added bonus! Although the directions don't ask them to, consider requiring learners to write the specific numbers of each set beneath the pictures. In this way, they can see the subtraction problem (with 5 as the difference) written out numerically.
