All my toys were one way or the other math related. I had puzzles, and tons of things Mom had me do as games on daily basis at home to get me ready for kindergarten! In fact, she continued guiding me towards being math friendly throughout kindergarten and first grade during which time 1st grade math worksheets was my constant companion.Practice surely makes perfect and I am very gratefully to Mom for taking her time to familiarize me with math even as a child. As a math tutor for 15 years, I have tutored hundreds of students from all the grade levels. I found most of the students were not comfortable with mathematics. More than 80% of them said, the mathematics is very hard. Why do most of the students find mathematics a hard subject and try to avoid it?
Moreover, some math software programs are available also in different languages such as Spanish and French. There are also those with a Learning Management System (LMS) that automatically tracks students test scores and provides the teacher with a database to sort and print as needed. Kindergarten and 1st grade math students will be able to start at the beginning with the basic concepts of relative position followed by counting and number sequences. Second grade math students and third grade math students will benefit from practicing sequences before moving on to addition and subtraction. Fourth grade math students may first review addition before moving on to multiplication. While fifth grade math students will review the basics of multiplication before learning the detailed steps of long division. When reaching sixth grade, students will benefit from reviewing the material studied in previous years and supplement with challenging worksheets including the concept of time, geometry, figural analogies and much more.
It is important to work with your child to help establish an appropriate pace. Part of the benefit of interactive learning games is that parents can monitor their child has progress and see how well things are going. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised at how much your kindergarten learns in a short period of time. Though kindergarten math can not be taught through learning games alone, interactive digital activities provide a good supplement to traditional education. When kids continue to practice what they have learned and become more comfortable with it outside the classroom, they are bound to do better as they progress through school. Learning games also give you an opportunity to work with your child at home, helping to boost his or her grasp of basic kindergarten math concepts. The use of digital learning games to teach kindergarten math is by no means a stand-in for traditional education. However, when kids are presented with a fun, interactive learning environment in their own homes, they can build skills and get a deeper understanding of the concepts that will lead to better classroom performance and a more positive school experience.
Math Word Problems are a great way to get your students to practice using math in everyday situations. Use these ideas and you will be able to create your own quickly and easily. Name the object to be shared and the number of people involved. The Grade 3 class at May-berry State School have won a writing competition. 15 pizzas are being delivered to the class. There are 8 slices in each pizza and 25 students in the class.How many pieces can each student eat? How many slices will be left over? This type of problem can be extended by adding more people.If the Grade 3 students decide to share the pizzas with the Kindergarten class, how many pizzas will each student get? There are 21 students in the Kindergarten class. How many slices will be left over?
Many teachers do not appear to know how to harness the power of play to effectively lead children to an understanding of math concepts. This is hardly surprising as teachers strive to meet externally imposed targets with little emphasis or guidance given on how to implement play based learning in the math class. The text book and worksheet rule the day. Until schools are allowed more freedom to adopt a more child-centered approach children will continue to struggle in math and many will ultimately disengage from learning altogether. Is this the fate your child could face? More to the point, are you prepared to take that risk?
When learning arithmetic, repeatedly doing sums for a long period, with little variation, can soon get boring for many students. Before long, their attention can start to wonder, and as we all know - this is not conducive to learning. Quite the opposite, students generally learn best when enjoying the subject, and as a result many math teachers have introduced a variety of math games into their classrooms - and one such game that is very popular is math bingo. In math bingo, each student is given a bingo card (also known as a "bingo worksheet" or "bingo board") printed with numbers. These are not necessarily the standard bingo numbers, but rather are the answers to a number of different math problems.
Remember to select worksheets that are the right level difficulty for your child. Get something too hard, and your child will become discouraged. Make it too easy, and they will not learn much. Home-school worksheets are far more than busy work. They are an important part of making sure that the concepts you teach in your home school stick with your child. Just make sure you have a good source for providing the worksheets, and that they are the right ones for your kid or kids.
