When giving a friend a present it is always great to make them presentable and mysterious to them. Even a simple gift can be made into an over whelming experience if the packaging is bright, mysterious and fun. Keeping your friends likes in mind wrap the gifts with a cover printed with animal and kids has pictures, hearts and other colors for both boys and girls.
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.
Remember that this age group also needs lots of counting, sorting, grouping, patterning, classifying and ordering activities. This will help in their mathematical understanding if they have been given the opportunity to explore all of these concepts. Simple activities like sorting buttons, putting away the shopping, threading colored straws, collecting and sorting things from the garden and lining books in the shelf from tallest to shortest are all ways in which these concepts can be reinforced at home. Do not underestimate the impact of Singing games like 5 little ducks went out one day and 5 speckled frogs sitting on a speckled log in the teaching of these concepts to young children. Maths concepts can be part of a large variety of everyday children has learning experiences. When the experience is relevant to them, they are more likely to retain the information and optimum learning takes place. There are also many software programs or online Maths sites that can help your pre-schooler learn the basics of Maths in a fun and visual way. Maths can be lots of fun and learning through play is relevant and meaningful for this age group.
A comprehensive set of worksheets covering a variety of subjects can be used to expand your child has learning experience. A worksheet about shapes can be used as part of a game to find shapes around the house, counting worksheets can be used to count things you see in the grocery store and so on. Almost everything you do with your child can be turned into an opportunity to learn - and worksheets can give you the guidance you need to find those opportunities. Worksheets that include topics such as social and natural science will help to expand your child has horizons, teaching them about their environment and how things work, while improving their vocabulary at the same time. A worksheet about farm animals can initiate a visit to the farm area at the zoo, or to a real farm, where your child can explore and learn even more.
When you are teaching your student to write, there are a whole host of worksheets online that you can use. Many of these include clipart that will help the students learn the sounds of letters and letter combinations. There are other sheets that help the student learn to write his or her numbers. It is helpful having printable worksheets for something like this, because parents often go through quite a few of these before the child masters writing the numbers or letters correctly. Even the youngest students--kindergarteners--will benefit from printable worksheets. They will help your little one learn and master basic concepts in way that will capture and hold their attention. Remember that small kids enjoy doing things rather than simply reading or listening. For this reason, attractive, well-illustrated worksheets with something to do will make learning fun for them. What is more, completing your worksheet will give the child a tremendous sense of fulfillment.
I believe the program I have created can solve the problem of how to teach math concepts through play. It provides a clear and progressive framework but also needs the commitment of a parent or teacher to guide, direct and pose the challenges that will create a stimulating, stress free but highly challenging learning environment. Are you ready to make that commitment? If you are you may be as surprised to discover just as I did that learning math can be extremely fulfilling on many levels. I really hope you are interested enough to read my next article as we take a close look at the math model your child will need to play with every day.
By the time they are learning first grade math, kids should be ready to tackle things like the relationship between addition and subtraction, the concept of adding and subtracting two-digit numbers and learning to count beyond 100. Being able to compare numbers as larger, smaller or equal to each other is also important, as it provides the basis for recognizing whether or not the answer to a computation problem is the correct one. Children need to be allowed to master these and other essential math skills before being asked to move on to new ideas, but the modern classroom setting does not always allow for this. As focus on core curriculum begins to push complex ideas into lower grade levels, kids are expected to learn more at a younger age. First grade math still contains many fundamental concepts essential for understanding higher math, and therefore should not be rushed through. By letting a child try and re-try each new thing as it comes, online math games can give the extra time and practice that struggling students need to achieve success.
