Making Sense of Math

Parents are bombarded with messages to read with their children, but it’s rare to hear about the importance of doing math with them. Here are some helpful tips on why and how to instill a love of math in your children.

Play Games: adding and subtracting speed drills

Count everything: steps, signs on the road, french fries, light switches in the house – EVERYTHING

Find Patterns and Shapes: noticing math in our world establishes a need to understand

Technology: Compass Learning and Stride Academy are free to all Chalkville students and a great way to build math skills

The goal should be to make math “real” and meaningful by pointing it out in the world around you. That could include checking and comparing prices at the grocery store, driving down the street counting mailboxes, reading recipes, calculating coupons, or even measuring food or drink at the dinner table. I encourage every parent to show their children ways that math impacts our world daily.
