By the time they reach first grade, kids should be ready to move beyond simple math concepts such as number recognition and counting and begin learning to add and subtract numbers of varying values. Online math games for first graders introduce these concepts in a fun, adaptive environment that sets kids up for success as they progress through first grade and beyond. Traditional teaching methods have a lot of merit, which is why textbooks, worksheets and chalkboards persist in today has classrooms. Along with engaging and effective teaching methods, these tools can provide kids with the building blocks that they need in many subjects throughout their early school careers. But with technology now being an integral part of everyday life, it can be beneficial to add math games for first graders to the elementary school curriculum. Including an interactive online learning experience not only boosts kids has mathematical proficiency, it also helps them to learn the basic computer skills necessary to achieve success in today has society. And though math games may move at a quicker pace than traditional classroom instruction, they still require kids to focus and pay attention to lessons so that basic skills can be mastered and concepts properly understood before more advanced ideas are introduced.
In all stages above, it is imperative to do oral and mental math. Without this skill, your child will be forever stuck with a pencil and paper. And the more work done on paper with a pencil, the more there is a chance for an error. And, your child will be stuck following steps instead of "just doing math." Doing oral and mental math makes a person very comfortable with math. Many adults have math phobia, due in no small part to not being able to do mental math. How to do it? While driving, cooking, shopping, sightseeing, almost any situation, you can drill your child on math. If a box costs $2, how much does 2 cost? How many horses do you see? Count the blue cars. Are their more boys than girls? Anything! Be creative. You can even get them to recite the times tables. This will also set the stage for an important skill they must master. Word problems! How many times have you heard people say they cannot do word problems? The oral problems you make up are just another form of word problems. If your child is used to doing math, without a problem written on paper, your child will not fear word problems. If you adamantly do the above, there is one last step. Sometimes it is out of your control, but do your best! Put your child in a class where there is an effective algebra teacher, and all math classes beyond sixth grade. You may find this hard, but the only one fighting for your child is you!
Play a magnetic fish game with cardboard fish with a paper-clip and a piece of dowel and string with a magnet on the end as a fishing rod. Count the fish in the pond. When one gets caught subtraction how many are left? Division can be as simple as a sharing exercise. "There are 4 people here and I have 8 counters. Let us see how many we will get each". Use play dough or counters or blocks to make groups of items. Talk about what happens when you put groups together (multiplication). Make the terminology you use simple. This age group need simple language instead of mathematical terms. These activities are laying the foundations for further learning.
Failure to engage these men at a young age has proved disastrous for them and the communities they live in. But this is not an issue confined to the USA. In the For-bury district of Dunedin in New Zealand, Barbara has been overseeing a radical experiment. The local school was on the verge of anarchy. In desperation the local education authority turned to Professor for help. Her immediate response was to request a complete change of staff. New staff would be trained in delivering the curriculum in a variety of teaching styles suited to the individual needs of the learner. I was privileged to spend a fortnight at the school observing Head-teacher Janis Tonia and her staff successfully meeting the considerable challenges posed by a badly failing school in an area where gang culture is a fact of life. If these methods can work in that situation they can work anywhere.
