Start by meeting with the classroom teacher to find out how your child is taught mental math at school. Is it by using traditional methods which mix learning by rote and quiz type questioning? Does the class use eLearning software either for the delivery of math lessons on a whiteboard or for individual learning? In most cases, teaching will include a mix of all three elements, in which case it is important to find out from your child which approach to learning they enjoy and respond to the most. The final question to ask the teacher is how your son or daughter is performing in relation to the class as a whole, when it comes to mental math. If their mental math performance is average or above average for their age, you can take an approach to improving their mental math skills which uses fun math games and activities, allowing the kid to progress at a rate that suits them. However, if your kid lags behind their peer group, a more structured and intensive period of remedial mental math is appropriate, in which you allocate a set amount of time each week to mental math activities and monitor their progress closely. Whichever approach is required, we will look at a few interesting ways to introduce math into your child has everyday life in a way that they will be unaware that they are improving their math skills.
The fashion for cursive writing comes and goes. Many years ago all children were taught to write in an elaborate cursive script, requiring many hours of weekly practice to perfect. Over the years as other subjects began to crowd out handwriting lessons in the school curriculum this gradually gave way to teaching a basic print style of handwriting (ball and stick). Many people now believe that keyboarding skills are more important than good handwriting. Others believe that even computer keyboards will soon be defunct with speech recognition software becoming more popular.
This sounds like an awful lot, does not it! A good set of preschool worksheets should cover all of this, and more. In the preschool years, repetition is the key to learning, but you should look for worksheets that teach the same skills in a variety of ways. This not only prevents boredom setting in, but also reinforces the concepts by encouraging understanding as well. The importance of reading to your child cannot be emphasised enough, and you should encourage them to read as much as possible too.
