If the two values being subtracted are mixed fractions, it is often easier to turn them into improper fractions to perform the subtraction. This avoids any kind regrouping or borrowing from the minuend fraction if the numerator in the subtrahend is larger.
Another variation is to ask the child to draw. First make some sticks, circles, squares, or other shapes on a page, and encircle them. Make for the child a big "bubble" to draw in, and ask the child to draw either the same amount, one more, or one less. Also have your child practice writing numbers on paper.
Simplifying fractions has been one of the major concern for most children. But, worry not! There is an easy explanation to it and we have it right here.
Who said learning multiplication has to be boring? By turning math into a game, you are more likely to remember what you are doing.
