For example, all children should learn their multiplication tables by the third grade. They should be able to repeat them, verbally, without using a calculator. Children in elementary school who rely on the calculator for the answers are creating math deficiencies, which could have a negative impact on their math development.
This teacher should believe in giving homework every night. Homework reinforces what was taught and learned in class and gives the parent and the teacher a chance to see if the child understands that information.
They can start with asking simple math questions and going on to harder questions, as the child gets older. Parents should continually ask children mathematical computation questions and give positive feedback when they respond. Children love to receive positive feedback and that encourages continues growth.
Get in the Kitchen! I was very hesitant for a while with my son when it came to the kitchen. I worried about the GIANT mess that would be left when he was done "helping". You don't even have to take on the entire project with them! You can start small and let your child help with measuring certain ingredients. You can modify the difficulty of the 'lesson' by talking about the different kinds of measuring cups and seeing what other measurements can also add up to equal one cup, etc.
