Each card contains a subtraction problem together with a number line to 20. Children can use the number line to find the difference.

Once they have learned their facts within 20, they will no longer need the number line.

There are two ways you can use this subtraction printable.

Place them in sheet protectors and have the kids use dry-erase markers to write the answers. Like in the picture below:
