**Description: **This packet helps students practice solving word problems that require subtraction of fractions (with the same denominator). Each page has a set of 5 problems. Each page also has a speed and accuracy guide, to help students see how fast and how accurately they should be doing these problems. After doing all 10 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.

In my garden, I planted $\dfrac{2}{4}$ of a row of seeds. A crow flew down and ate $\dfrac{1}{4}$ of the row of seeds! How much of the row of seeds do I have left in my garden?

There is $\dfrac{7}{8}$ of a large pepperoni pizza left in the fridge. I reheated and ate $\dfrac{2}{8}$. How much pizza is left?

Practice problems require knowledge of how to add and subtract whole numbers.
