Forty one states so far have adopted the Common Core State Standards for English, which does not require students to learn cursive. Some states have since returned cursive to their curriculum. The argument against cursive handwriting is that it is time-consuming and not nearly as beneficial as learning keyboarding skills that students will need while moving on to high school. Let us look into the importance of cursive a little further. Cursive handwriting is viewed by some educators and parents alike as an essential part of education. Young children and teens today are using technologies not available to generations past. Many parents feel that learning cursive is improving their children has fine motor skills and science is backing up that theory.
Make your math lessons fun by cracking jokes and showing lots of enthusiasm when you are teaching her. Show her your love for math. Hopefully, that will be contagious. You can even create your own funny math problems. Instead of the boring "If John has 3 marbles and Jenny has 5 more marbles than John, how many marbles do they have altogether?" you could write "If Witch Wilda has 3 hairy warts on her slimy tongue and Wizard Woku has 5 more warts on his slimy tongue than Witch Wilda, how many gross warts do they have altogether?" you would have a much better response from your child, after she has stopped giggling.
During classroom time, you can even make division activities more interactive. Create groups of students in the classroom and give them all some objects like marbles, or other small objects. You can tell your students how many they have, and how they should divide out the marbles with their friends. This will quickly help them understand the basics of division, and added onto an understanding of adding, subtracting and multiplying they will soon be on their way to understanding more complex parts of their mathematics curriculum. Keep your students interested, and if you are helping your children, remember to keep encouraging them. No matter how hard they find it, they will soon get the hang of it.
