Math Tips

Math is a part of our everyday lives.  There are many activities you can do at home with your child to help strengthen his/her mathmatical abilities:

  • Measurement activities - cooking/baking, walking, bike riding, car rides, home improvement projects, talk about schedules & noting the time of each activity begins or how long something will take. Discuss with your child the concepts of length, time, weight, capacity, and distance and introduce measurement vocabulary (centimeter, inch, foot, pint, quart, gallon, o'clock, minute).

  • Money - assist your child with counting coins & dollar bills. Set up a piggy-bank, recycle cans and count the change, have your child assist counting $ when paying with cash at the store. Identify coins/teach money vocabulary (i.e. penny, nickel, dime, quarter, half-dollar)

  • Geometry - identify shapes of objects you see together. Assist your child with 2-dimensional/3-dimesional vocabulary words such as square, cube, triangle, pyramid, circle, sphere, oval,  and rectangle.

  • Patterns - identify patterns you see together. Assist your child in completing patterns-ask him/her "what comes next?"

  • Computation - practice addition/subraction flash cards at home and/or have siblings use flash cards to  "quiz" each other during car rides.

  • Number Sense - have your child count EVERYTHING! Practice skip counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, and even 100s. Count by even numbers only, count by odd numbers only, count backwards, count to 100. Practice forming & writing numbers correctly (use chalk, pencil, crayon, clay, and shaving cream with food coloring is a lot of fun too). Magnetic/foam numbers are a great tool!
