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.
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.
Assigned practice problems are all well and good, but what do you do when you run out of questions that the teacher has sent home, need to review an earlier unit before moving on to the current math skills, or reach the end of the practice problems in your textbook?
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!
