Parents can assist with developing a lot of the fundamental skills needed for children to succeed in math when they attend school. Parents can do things that will support the schools and hopefully the schools will do the rest.
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.
Learning math skills can be frustrating and complicated for children. In order to make things easier, schools are using new programs to help children learn math in a fun and simple way, mimicking computer games.
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.
