(quick Math practices to get you started)
Flash Cards- available at dollar stores, or better, yet make them together. There is not a lot of time to practice here at school. Most of this practice needs to be done at home.
Skip Counting- First learn counting by 2s, 5s, 10s, 100s, then try 3s, 9s, 11s. Finally, the tough ones 4s, 6s, 7s, and 8s. You'll be amazed at how this helps.
ex. How many cars passed us on the way to Glens Falls?
How many forks did you put away?
ex. Put groups of similar things together. Sort by color, size, shape, number of items. (laundry, silverware, coins) Ask "How are these groups the same or different?"
What is a face clock (analog)?
What time is it?
How long did it take you?
How long must you wait?
Sort and count coins.
Have your child make change.
Collect the different state coins.
Discuss the information on the money.
Go Fish with playing cards
Dice- Roll, add or multiply the numbers.
