Every time your child finishes her work to the best of her ability, praise her for her effort. "You really worked hard to solve those problems. I am so proud of you!" Your child will come to love your praise and attention and will work harder to earn more praise. Always praise her for her effort, but do not ever call her a math whiz. That is because your child must learn the all-important lesson that any challenge can be overcome by hard work, not by talent alone. This will also prevent her from being crippled in the future by math anxiety if she has difficulty with a particularly tough math problem. Instead, she will have faith in her ability to solve any challenging problem. She will know that as long as she has the right attitude she will eventually learn how to solve any math question, no matter how terribly difficult it may seem to be at the moment.
Learning about numbers includes recognizing written numbers as well as the quantity those numbers represent. Mathematics worksheets should provide a variety of fun activities that teach your child both numbers and quantity. Look for a variety of different ways to present the same concepts. This aids understanding and prevents boredom. Color-by-Numbers pictures are a fun way to learn about numbers and colors too.
Another problem with manuscript/print writing is the spaces. Some children do not recognize time/space well, so their words are mashed totally together. A compensatory tactic to get them to space words is to put a finger after a word so they can not begin the next one immediately. The advantage to cursive is that it forces word separation and better use of space, but neurologically impaired children often have difficulty with spatial relationships. Some students only write on the right, left, top or bottom of a page, misunderstand what margins are (and how to indicate them), where to begin writing (letter and total writing reversals like mirror writing).
