Use the sidewalk or any cemented ground area where you and your child can draw on using a chalk. Draw a number line starting with a "0" and ending with "25" equally dividing the distance between each numbers. You can then make your child stand on a number then ask him to jump a specific number of steps back until he reaches zero. Example: Let your child stand on the number "18" in the number line facing towards the "0" then make him jump on every three lines until he reaches "0" counting how many jumps he had to do to reach the "0". This game is just like the frog game we used to do on paper when we were younger and mastering our division skills.
Nowadays teachers can use an enormous amount of internet resources to create puzzles. Just be creative. It is fairly easy to turn a multiplication table, or any form of math content, in a math word search or crossword puzzle. Let students calculate the words to be found first and then complete the puzzle. Kids love to solve puzzles, it´s how our brains are designed. Marzano states that our brain functions are better simulated when we actively have to fill in blanks or missing pieces of information.
My wife and I came up with a plan to have our daughter set some goals and once she accomplished those goals, then she would get rewarded for her efforts. But we did not leave her by herself to accomplish this feat alone. We had to be there every step of the way, encouragement and giving praises to her for a job well done. Just before the end of the school year, her third grade class just started doing division problems, and the look on her face just said it all. Her usual complaints of, "I can´t do this," or "this is too hard," once again was heard throughout the house.
Ask any elementary school student what subject he hates more than any other and the chances are that 9 out of 10 will say Math. I know I did, and I know that 2 out of my 3 children did. Why do you suppose this is true? The main reason kids hate Math is that somewhere along the way, they haven´t quite understood a concept that was presented to them, and, often, before they do understand it, a new concept has been added. Before long, the child is so overwhelmed, they just give up and, as a result, decide they hate the subject.
Division is one Math concept that a child should master early on. As a parent your child will surely need your help in improving his skills in division. Division math games that will improve your child´s skills can be easy and fun and will help give your child a great time in learning this concept.
Math is one subject that has had negative feedback because people tend to describe it as difficult and hard to learn. Teaching elementary math with ease is very challenging for any teacher but quite rewarding when you see your students enjoying math and working on their math projects with ease.
By introducing puzzles in the math lesson or as homework, teachers can get every student engaged. And the more students practice, the better they will learn or catch up. Teachers can give puzzles as homework assignment to those who are struggling with the subject. To give a puzzle as homework rather than a page in a book, will probably yield a better result.
