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.
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.
Now that you have generated a crossword puzzle and have you words in you can easily go in and create other activities using the puzzle creator. Next you will want to add some finishing touches and spice things up a bit. You can do this by copying the crossword puzzle or word search and then pasting it into your text editor like word and etc. Then add a few little piece of clip art to really add a final touch. Then you will want to either print a copy for every guest or have it copied at a local copy or office supply shop. You can keep these in a folder ready to go and then just pull them out when you need them.
