Worksheets for Subtraction Word Problems
Once you've mastered addition story problems, these subtraction worksheets are a great followup for first, second or third grade math students. Like the addition worksheets on the prior page, these problems start out very easy so that students can focus on learning how to turn the langauge of a story problem into a math question they can readily solve.
The worksheets are grouped into four variations with different problems on each page. As you go through the sets of worksheets the math will involve larger numbers, although the basic addition word problem skills will remain the same.
