Turn everyday activities into fun math practice. If your child is eating waffles for breakfast, see if he can divide a waffle into halves or quarters. Younger children might be able to count the number of waffle grooves while older children might be able to calculate the waffle s circumference.

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!

Instead of simply doing the worksheets with the facts, use the summer to find worksheets that include puzzles. Choose worksheets that will engage your childâ€™s mind in solving a puzzle as well as solving math facts, and watch as her interest in the worksheets increases. The puzzle also serves as a check, because the answer will not come out correctly if the problems are not solved correctly.

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.
