Make it part of your daily math routine with your student to review the subtraction facts daily by showing them the cards and having them say the answers. For every answer they get correct, they get the card. Make it their goal to collect all of the cards. When they have reached a point where they know all of the facts, make it a speed contest, time how long it takes them to go through all of the facts, challenge them to beat their time each day.
