There are different versions of the Subtraction Poem out there. So what makes my version different? My version is complete and also applies to older grade students who struggle with subtracting and regrouping large numbers. What happens when your students hit a wall of confusion when subtracting across zeros? Uh, oh, there's nothing to borrow from and they just stop working. But with this Subtraction Poem all the steps are included and students can get through tricky numbers easily. Ultimately you will want your students to have it memorized so they can remember the subtraction steps during testing!
Also try these in bookmark style, so your students can keep the poem handy at their desk and for homework: Subtraction Poem Bookmarks

Just a California girl, living in a teacher's world. I love teaching third grade in the Los Angeles area while creating and sharing awesome educational resources. I've been teaching elementary school since 2000, primarily in third grade but I have also taught second and fourth. I've been a part of Whole Brain Teaching for over a decade, and believe it is the best classroom management system out there. I enjoy being able to mentor new teachers in classroom behavior management and motivational techniques to excite and engage their learners.
