Get some addition practice while reading picture books together. There are a ton of great picture books that have overt and hidden addition facts and practice, but you can turn any book into a lesson in addition. If you read a page with a picture of a forest, you might say to your child, "I see three trees and four flowers. How many plants are there all together?" You can add characters, shapes, items, or anything in multiples.
Subtracting fractions is similar to adding fractions. Most of the work involves the denominator. If the denominators of the two fractions are already the same, much of the work is done. Simply subtract the two numerators to get the answer fraction using the same denominator, and then reduce and make a proper fraction.
If the answers numerator is greater than the denominator, then the answer is an improper fraction. This fraction should be turned into a proper fraction by taking wholes out of the numerator until the numerator is less than the denominator.
