Print off the Roll and Smash Subtraction. There are several choices to choose from including blackline versions to save on you on ink, cute colorful roll & smash subtraction strips with boxes only, and subtraction playdough mats with not only hands-on smash boxes but areas for children to write the difference.

You will also need:

  • playdough (any color)
  • markers or dry erase markers if you laminate the strips to make them reusable

The first option includes both color and blackline versions of the simple activity. Children will roll one dice, add the number of balls rolled. Now roll the dice again and smash to subtract as many balls as you have (without going negative). As them to tell you the subtraction sentence.

We have 4 red playdough balls, we squash to subtract 2 balls and we have 2 balls left.

For the other option I suggest laminating the strips before cutting them awart and using a dry erase marker to make them reusable. You will need each of the strips for subtracting from 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1. Make a ball for each of the spaces indicated.

Playdough Activities

There are 2 ways to play:

  • Roll the dice and smash the number of balls indicated.  Count the number of balls left and complete the equation below the chart. Re-roll the balls, roll the dice, and repeat. Continue playing the subtraction game until you have completed all the equations.
  • Alternatively, simply start by smashing one and complete the subtraction equation. Now smash another ball and complete that equation. Continue until there are no playdough balls left.
