Beyond 1, 2, 3, 4…

Encourage creative problem-solving. 

Problem-solving is the basis of good mathematical thinking, and the problems don’t have to involve numbers.

  • “How many different ways are there to walk to school?”
  • “What’s another way to arrange the furniture in this room?”
  • “How many different ways can I measure flour to get half a cup?”

Try to come up with more than one solution for everyday problems.

Language Arts Tip

It is important that children know the names of objects in their environment; this is a base for future learning.  You can gain insight into what your child knows by playing games.  You might look at a picture or illustration and say, “Lets’s find all the apple trees, pine trees, water towers, movie theaters, ” and so on.

Tip for Parents

Read newspaper headlines together and try to figure out what the story is about.  This will help make the newspaper important to your child, as well as provide reading practice.   This can be used as your child’s 20 minutes reading practice (still include a summary) for daily homework.

Reading Tips

Ask questions after reading a story that encourages your child to compare, contrast and evaluate. For example, read a story about the ocean and ask: What are some of the differences between a trench and a continental slope? A continental slope and continental shelf?

Stay Focus to task!
