Make numbers a part of your everyday routine. Your child might not like addition, but he may enjoy counting the number of stop signs on the drive to school or the number of stairs on your porch. Lead by example to encourage your child to think of math exercises as a part of his daily routine.
Worksheets that are just row after row of numbers are boring. Some kids take a shine to them, simply because they have a desire to do math, but most find them less than desirable. You can make them more fun by choosing your math worksheets more carefully.
For kids that have a basic interest in math, try using daily riddles to keep them thinking throughout the day. At breakfast, you may ask your child a riddle like, "What number has three tens and four ones?" or, "What is a mathematician s favorite dessert?" Your child can take the day to think about the riddle and tell you the answer when you are working on math practice worksheets after school!
Challenge your students with creative mathematics lessons, printable worksheets, activities, quizzes, and more during Math Education Month (April)—or anytime of the year! Focus on various mathematical themes, such as geometry, algebra, probability and statistics, money, measurement, and more! Incorporating other subjects—such as art, reading, and science—into your math lessons will help hold your students interest in the subject.
