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!
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.
There’s a reason math is one of the first subjects that kids are taught: It’s a skill that will be used at every stage of life. And like all skills, practice makes perfect, which is why we offer an array of math worksheets. Whether you have a kindergartner who is learning basic arithmetic or a middle-schooler who just started tackling algebra, we have a worksheet that will help boost your child’s math grade—and confidence.
