Many of the games on the market have a tendency to fall into a number of the same themes: action adventure, superhero, science-fiction, historical, pop culture, etc. One of the more underrepresented games on the market is those games that deal with the seasons and holidays of the year. Now, it is true that there are a number of Christmas and Halloween related games that are perennial sellers year after year. It would be tough to miss these games as they generally are quite commonly prominently placed on store shelves when the holiday season rolls around. Of course, this is not to infer that all season and holiday themed games are commonly visible. In fact, some are downright underrepresented. One such holiday that is often not commonly represented on toy shelves if the holiday of Thanksgiving and this is unfortunate. Well, you can correct this slight and oversight with the purchase of the cool Thanksgiving printable game Harvest Word Scramble.
Learning fractions in math does not have to be frightening and complicated for students any longer. Concentration, Bingo, and War are just three of the many fun math games to make that help educators, tutors, and parents teach math in a more creative and engaging way! Consider how much fun they can have while working in small groups to practice their skills. Best of all, using games is not intimidating to students like the prospect of turning in another worksheet to the scrutiny of the marking pencil!
Your kids learning their shapes are very important to the development of their learning skills. It has been proven that learning shapes enhances their reading capabilities in the future, and comprehensive skills as well. Then, you can cut out the shapes when they are all nice and colored, and paste them onto the wall of your toddler has room in order to refer to them every now and then and review the lesson. With a little parental guidance, they can really learn them.
The children should love to do the worksheets; they should not be thrust upon them. Also doing only worksheets alone repeatedly would not be very productive. You should have a range of physical games and activities as well that would reinforce the concepts learnt. The alphabet song: This remains a lovely way to practise the alphabet. Sing it slowly and sing it often. If you have a large alphabet chart and point out to each letter while you sing, it will be of great value. You can give all children letter cards in order (alphabet flashcards); they can hold up each letter as it is sung.
Many online math games are designed purely for entertainment and will not do much in terms of teaching your child. While these games can be fun and engaging for third graders, you want to choose games that will practice the skills being taught in school. Look for games and puzzles that are part of an adaptive learning program. This means that the online games are well-thought out and match the same set of skills that are being taught in the third grade curriculum. The program is structured toward each individual student and fills in the gaps where the child is struggling.
With the Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y and Generation Z all having to interact and get along, it seems the characteristics above have swung the proverbial pendulum far from the middle. I believe what we are to see in the next number of years will move that now-wildly-swinging pendulum to more of a balance. The start-point to find a balance for that pendulum is to reinstitute cursive writing in schools and to teach the children to make longer upper loops, thereby fostering an interest far-reaching ideas, values and philosophies. This will give them a stronger focus they can apply other learning, and will provide a short respite from their many technological diversions. A longer, stronger attention span will, no doubt be an added benefit.
Just because your child will be playing fun online games does not mean the same value will not be there. Create a comfortable study zone. Turn off outside distractions such as cell phones, radios or TVs. Make sure your child is not tired or hungry so that he or she can focus all attention on learning. Also try to keep the lessons consistent with what is being learned in school. A quick chat with the teacher or signing up for an online newsletter from the classroom are ways to keep tabs on the lesson plans. Since 3rd grade math relies on the concepts that were learned during kindergarten, first and second grades, do not be afraid to start your child at a lower level. With adaptive learning, the programs will not move on to the next level until your child has a firm grasp on the current material. The online games will be a wonderful way for your child to catch up on basic arithmetic concepts and be comfortable using them across applications.
