School administrators are responsible for choosing the type of curriculum taught to children. As long as they are learning, the curriculum is considered effective. Using computer games as a tool is one option available to today's schools.
Go on a counting scavenger hunt! For young children, you can keep the hunt simple and indoors, go on a hunt and count how many bedrooms, windows, doors, bathrooms, etc are in your house. For older children, you can even take this adventure outside. Look for certain kinds of animals, plants, flowers, you name it! Add in another element of fun (for any age) and create a graph for them to track their finds!
School administrators, teachers and parents are also able to use the computer-based programs much like the former means of checking math worksheets on students' homework.
Parents who are positively involved with their children and want the best for them will make sure their children are keeping up with their math skills and are successful in school.
