Hey Michell,

To teach children how to subtract and learn how to borrow your can use the Following song:

I will write out the words for the problem
255
-99

Song is below:

I’ve got 5 they want nine, do I have enough? No!
So borrow from the left
Scratch it make in smaller slide one to the right (Show student to scratch the 5 make it a 4 and slide a 1 by the 5)
I’ve got 15 they want 9 do I have enough? Yes!, 15-9 is 6 (Show student where to write the 6)
I've got 4 they want 9 do I have enough? No!
So borrow from the left
Scratch it make in smaller slide one to the right (Show student to scratch the 2 make it a 1 and slide a 1 by the 4)

I’ve got 14 they want 9 do I have enough? Yes!14-9 is 5 (Show student where to write the 5)

I’ve got 1 they want 0, do I have enough? Yes
1-0 is 1!
