Another strategy involves allowing your child to spend some time on a computer playing math games. The computer can be a wonderful resource that supports math and other subject area skills. Software is available that will measure a child's math skill level.
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.
Go Shopping! : You can cater this to all different ages. For young children, you can do a 'mock shop' and let them pretend to go shopping in a pretend store (your kitchen). Label certain items with easy to read prices and print some pretend money for them to shop with! For older children, you can let them help you in the actual grocery store with a specific shopping list. You can even set specific spending limits and give a specific amount of items and let them determine what they can afford, etc.
At the end of all levels, children are greeted by a celebration and encouraged by a computer voice to change topics.
