It's that time of year again. Are you looking for ways to keep your child engaged in learning maths during vacation? Here are a few of our favorite tips:
Take a trip to your local library
Take a trip with your child to your library to discover new children’s books about maths. These books are a great and fun way to help your child begin understanding the purpose of maths. Visit our Maths Story Books Pinterest board for some wonderful options to get you started!
Let your child play with the blocks
Free play with blocks can be a great way to prepare your child for his introduction to Math-U-See. Two or three times a week, encourage your child to use his imagination to create different games to play with the blocks. This is a fun way for your child to become familiar with sorting the blocks and learning the block colors.
Turn word problems in to fun puzzles
Word problems can be so frustrating. Try presenting them as puzzles instead. Your older children may enjoy working through word problems developed for lower level students. This activity makes word problems fun, and it reinforces previously mastered maths skills.
Log on to try math drills
Math-U-See has developed online math drills to help students stay on top of their math concepts. This is a wonderful way for students to work on memorizing and remembering maths facts, which has the potential to improve your child’s comprehension and readiness to move to the next maths level. Also, try a few of our worksheets for more targeted instruction.
We’ve got an app for that
The Math-U-See Manipulatives App provides students with an opportunity to practice their skills from anywhere – they can access the app while on vacation, at a restaurant, or during a rainy day indoors.
