For some children, a simple kitchen timer and a chart can be all that you need to make those 3rd grade math worksheets more interesting. Give the child a worksheet that covers basic math facts, such as multiplication tables, then ask them to solve it as quickly as they can. Set the timer, and see if they can solve the problems in less than five minutes. Record the time it takes to complete the problem, adding one second for every missed problem. Then, repeat the next time, and challenge your child to beat his or her score.
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.
Enrich your childs math education by keeping a set of fun math worksheets available. Some kids like to have quiet time to try new math concepts at their own pace. Encourage your child to practice with a new math worksheet for kids daily.
You don’t have to come up with a fancy game in order to make 3rd grade math worksheets more fun. Sometimes simply changing the location increases the “fun factor.” Take your child outside on the patio table or picnic table, and watch as his enjoyment of the activity increases quickly.
