Math Help For Your Child


Visitors: 146

If you need a little extra math help for your child this school year I have a suggestion that worked wonders around our house. My wife designed a series of math games and riddles that presented our children opportunity to learn while they thought they were playing! Here is how it works.

For the younger children in your family it will be simple to just make up some easy math situations that include adding and subtracting. Have them draw simple sketches of five or six stick men and create a story such as this. Six men began a short walk to the ice cream store. Two of the men forgot their money and had to go home. How many men got their ice cream?

You can make your stories as simple or as complicated as your child's level of learning requires. We found that playing a few math games along with snack time as soon as the kids arrived home from school seemed to work best. A word of warning, though. Children take to this type of learning and will demand more and more challenges. Be prepared to create a lot of different situations!

Another of the fun tools for learning math we used was to use math problems to solve a riddle. Assign letters of the alphabet to each math answer. Then use the correct letters to fill in a puzzle or answer a riddle. Kids love this one!

Making math fun for your children is the easiest way to improve their grades. They are just like us. It is a lot easier to learn something if they believe it is just for fun! Math games and riddles have become favorite teacher aids for just this reason. Try incorporating a few fun learning sessions and watch your child's math grades skyrocket this school year.

You don't have to be a math genius to Help Your Student Learn Math this year. Check out this great guide, Math Riddle Book for hundreds of games, puzzles and riddles to help make math fun! It is great for busy parents and teachers! Check it out now!
