Fraction Subtraction Anchor Chart

I created these anchor charts when I started teaching my fourth grade students subtraction of mixed numbers with like denominators. The borrowing process is a difficult one to understand, so I designed these charts to explain the math thinking that is needed to solve the problems. They are a great resource for students to refer to during class activities.
