Math Strategies to Try at Home

-Practice real world math.  Count items at home or at the store.  Have your child add and subtract items you see.  Make sure to have them explain their reasoning. 

-Act out problems at home using manipulatives such as pennies, Legos, beans etc.

 -Have your child go on a scavenger hunt for different shapes.

 -Make addition and subtraction flash cards and practice them daily to get away from counting on fingers.

 -Read the calendar and determine how many days until an upcoming event.
