More Math Tips & Activities:

Math can be fun for some and daunting for others. Whichever you are experiencing, it is always important to keep a positive attitude and incorporate games/activities that are engaging. Here are some suggestions for making math time a fun time:

- Make it a themed math day. Use a cartoon character, a special object, an experience, or food to make the lesson more concrete and fun.

-Practice math facts with PE! Skip counting while doing jumping jacks is my favorite!

-Practice math problems on the counter or outside using your fingers in whipped topping or shaving cream!

-If so many problem per page is causing a block, write them out on a bigger piece of paper, do them on a whiteboard, or write them in some other medium. As long as they do the math problems in some form, you can move on.

-If you're playing a game, have your child keep score or be the banker.

-Cooking is a great time to reinforce math concepts.

-Encourage, support, and cheer for them when they have a success or jump a difficult hurdle!

-Look for learning and review opportunities outside of the school day to reinforce topics.

-Have them "teach" someone something they are learning about. This reinforces their learning and gives them confidence. Recruit Grandparents, perhaps. They make great "students." *wink, wink*

-Check out some of the great math websites in the Educational Links section.
