Children can work with simple numbers worksheets from quite an early age and you will have greater success in getting them to work on the worksheets if you combine that learning work with something practical, or at least something they enjoy doing. For example, if you are using a simple addition and subtraction worksheet with your child, draw or type up another sheet of with squares and numbers printed onto them. Instead of writing the answers to the questions on the worksheet you can get your child to cut and paste the required numbers for the answers from from the second worksheet onto the first.
Holidays make the perfect time to introduce new toddler crafts and new knowledge. As you make your Christmas gifts or decorations, add an activity or story reading time to help your little ones understand the meaning or Christmas. Having a fun activity planned in addition to the crafts makes for great family time and learning for the kids. So when your kids are making their stuffed paper bag turkey, have them tell you what they know of the Pilgrims and the "First Thanksgiving". Give them some history of your Thanksgiving growing up and what traditions your family had. Look for coloring pages, worksheets and other fun activities to keep them interested and the knowledge pouring in.
When it comes to using preschool worksheets, you will find that you have a number of different options. For instance, you can purchase preschool workbooks for your child. Preschool workbooks are nice, as they are a relatively large collection of individual preschool worksheets. You also have the option of using printable preschool worksheets. These printable preschool worksheets can be ones that you find available online or ones that you make on your computer yourself.
A fully functional budgeting worksheet should calculate your monthly cash flow analysis so that you can determine if you are overspending based on your income on a monthly basis. In order to determine your cash flow for the month, you will need to provide your monthly income information. A good worksheet should do all the math for you, generate a meaningful chart or two so that you can quickly see the areas in your budget that need to be improved upon. If you are over spending, you will need to adjust. If you are under spending, start saving towards your goals!
Two of the best options are Omega Math and ALEKS Math. Both of these programs are well-developed online math programs. Omega Math covers Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and II, as well as Geometry, and ALEKS is a full program for grades Kindergarten through High School, including Trigonometry, Statistics, and Accounting. There are some differences in presentation style, but both programs cover the material thoroughly, and all that a student needs to do is log in, have their pencil and paper nearby, and begin their study. Omega Math tends to be better equipped for students who catch on to math skills fairly easily and are motivated to streamline their work. Students log in to their course, view a PowerPoint lesson, and work through homework problems on their own. Feedback is given and students can also complete worksheets for extra practice. Chapter tests are provided, scored immediately, and parents can track the progress throughout the course by viewing simple charts and grade books making it very parent-friendly.
The other traditional leisure activity that I advocate for improving math skills is playing board games. There are numerous board games which involve rolling dice to move around a board, but the one of the best board games for developing the complete range of math skills is Monopoly. When playing Monopoly each player moves around a board buying, developing and selling property with the aim of bankrupting all the other players in order to win. What makes Monopoly different from many board games is that one of the players is appointed banker, a role which requires them to manage many of the financial aspects of the game, including arranging mortgages on properties, taking payments and giving change. If you put a child whose math needs a boost in the role of banker (and ensure that the other players have the patience of saints) in time, you will find his or her mental math skills flourish while everyone is having fun. The great thing is that Monopoly gives everyone more than enough time for practical math practice, as the game has a reputation for being interminable. In fact, the longest recorded game of Monopoly lasted for 1,680 hours, which is 70 days or 10 weeks. Just think how good your young banker has mental math would be after such a monumental game and how frayed everyone else has tempers might be as a result!In the concluding article of the series, we will consider the role that online math games can play in improving a kid has mental math skills.
All my toys were one way or the other math related. I had puzzles, and tons of things Mom had me do as games on daily basis at home to get me ready for kindergarten! In fact, she continued guiding me towards being math friendly throughout kindergarten and first grade during which time 1st grade math worksheets was my constant companion.Practice surely makes perfect and I am very gratefully to Mom for taking her time to familiarize me with math even as a child. As a math tutor for 15 years, I have tutored hundreds of students from all the grade levels. I found most of the students were not comfortable with mathematics. More than 80% of them said, the mathematics is very hard. Why do most of the students find mathematics a hard subject and try to avoid it?
