Who are the tasks intended for?

The subtraction worksheets up to 20 are suitable for preschool and first-grade children – six-year-olds, five-year-olds, and even four-year-olds. However, it depends on each child individually, and parents should definitely monitor whether the child is managing with the tasks.

If parents see that the task is too difficult, perhaps they should take a step back and focus on addition up to 10, addition up to 20, or addition with unknown addends. When subtraction up to 20 becomes too easy, you can move on to the next level – subtraction within twenty.
