Subtract 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-digit number from a 5-digit number.
Review subtraction of 2 numbers whose sums would be 18 or less.
Subtract 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers from 3- and 4-digit number with/without renaming.
Another important point I keep in mind is that I never want this regular math review time to take up and hour of class time. I want it to be quick but effective. This is not instructional time, but time for the students to review material they have already learned.
For many middle-school children, math is a real challenge. It is at this age that the concepts begin to get more abstract, and work goes beyond "concrete" ideas like adding and subtracting. It's no surprise that at this age, math can become something the student avoids, or begins to dislike.
However, caution must be taken into account when review is repeatedly covered in your classroom. You do not want your students to become bored or frustrated with the repetition.
