Similarly, kids who are best at counting backward can learn how to subtract numbers easily. For example, if a student knows 50, 45, 40, 35, 30, 25, 20; now it is very easy for this student to subtract 5 from 50 or any other number. Hence, learning backward counting is a key math skill too. Multiplication is the next skill to learn after addition and subtraction. Again students with excellent skipped counting skills start learning times tables very fast. Skip counting is multiplication, actually. If we look at counting by 2; it is 2 times table. Similarly kids learn 5 times table or 10 times table by skipping the numbers by 5 and 10 respectively.
In the introductory article, it was argued that learning mental math skills remains an important element of a child has education, even in the age of the calculator. So what should you do if you feel your son or daughter has math needs a boost? Rather than rushing headlong at the problem, it is important to first establish how your student is performing in relation to their peer group, how math is taught at school and how engaged they are with the subject.
Children need to be given lots of opportunity to write. The first word most kids will want to write is their own name. Parents can help by providing a good handwriting model for children to trace over at first, then later to copy. One way is to write the child has name using a light color then the child can trace over it with a darker color. Dotted letters are very effective for handwriting practice too. You can buy handwriting practice books but they will not be personalized for your child so you may want to consider getting a dotted font for your computer. Make sure you get the same style as your child is using at school to avoid making handwriting more complicated for them! It is easy to install a font on your computer and then you will be able to create name cards or type out a little story your child tells you. Once printed out the child can trace over the dotted letters.
