To find missing addend subtraction, you need to inform your kiddos that every time you need subtract, you need to subtract a number from the bigger one. Now for finding the missing addend subtraction, let’s consider an equation- 7 – __ = 5.

Now, you need some objects like dolls or balls. If you don’t get any objects, just use dots as objects. The main thing in any equation is the left-hand side and right-hand side will be always equal. This information should be known to your students.

Now, add dots against the numbers on the left-hand side and right-hand side. Like- add seven dots on the left-hand side and add 5 dots on the right-hand side. Here, you need to cut extra two dots on the left-hand side to get the result 5.

So, in the blank, you will write 2. This is the answer.
