Subtracting Money

Horizontal money problems can be difficult to add since the place values are not aligned.  Your student should use a separate paper write them in a vertical format.  Do not tell them to write the problems vertically, as you want to see if they know to do this on their own.  If students do not re-write the problems vertically you should practice this skill and stress to the student that horizontal problems should be re-written vertically.

Subtract the money problems below using a separate sheet of paper.
