Helping Your Child with Math
*Create a homework routine*
Have a set time and quiet place with no distractions for homework to be completed.
*Communicate with the teacher*
Share your thoughts and concerns. Call or write a note if your child has trouble with homework. Ask questions if you/your child do not understand something. Finally, share good news when you see your child making progress.
*Ask your child to explain*
Ask your child how he/she came up with the answer. Does the answer solve the problem?
*Be accepting of mistakes*
Every mistake is a part of the learning process.
*Share everyday math situations*
Invite your child to participate as you prepare a recipe, grocery shop, or balance your checkbook.
*Play math games*
Practice math concepts in a fun way.
