Introduce each of the numbers in the first grade, attending to each one individually by using stories and images that capture its unique essence. Devote a full teaching block of three to four weeks to the numbers 1-12 by telling and illustrating classic stories about such relevant subjects as the sun for the number 1, or bees and a beehive for the number 6. This is an investment that will yield a lasting and positive relationship with math for all of your students, while insuring the overall success of your homeschool math curriculum.
Online math software can be an effective way to practice at home, as math programs provide a steady source of new problems for children. Many modern math programs also use adaptive learning techniques to automatically change the types of problems that the child sees to adapt to his or her strengths and weaknesses. Your child will be consistently challenged and encouraged, which should lead to steady improvement. At the same time, past lessons will occasionally be revisited. This prevents your child from forgetting basic concepts that will be used in future lessons, thereby making every subsequent lesson somewhat easier.
Attributing temperament personalities to the 4 processes helps a great deal toward a greater understanding as well as proper, successful use. Colorful costumes, along with stories and plays, characterize and illustrate each one's unique traits and the way they all interact. This can also be a first look at how math intersects and interconnects on a deep and vital level, while giving it a dynamic and interesting face that will easily hold any student's attention and interest.
Math games for first graders take the simple skills that children learned in kindergarten and build on them by introducing new concepts in an encouraging learning environment that works with kids at their own levels. Whether a child needs to review concepts from kindergarten or is ready to move on to more challenging addition and subtraction skills, online games can give him or her exactly the right kinds of math problems to work with. Both teachers and parents can use this technology to track kids progress, thereby making it easier to know what academic level a child is at and when he or she is ready to move on.
Even though you will still end up doing it in future but you have succeeded in wasting your precious time on what you'll not be examined on at that particular time. If after your first year in secondary school, you should have successfully completed ten topics, but you find yourself as a result of misinformation struggling with a topic that is to be offered in the third year, then you'll have yourself to blame if you can't master or have a good understanding of those ten topics.
After introducing the numbers, the next step is to bring them together so they can interrelate. Teaching all 4 processes at once using simple and straightforward equations promotes greater student understanding. Seeing the big picture in this way is reassuring, because there won't be any daunting, hidden surprises with multiplication and division if addition and subtraction are taught first. Personalize the 4 processes by applying and relating the 4 temperaments to them.
By the time they reach first grade, kids should be ready to move beyond simple math concepts such as number recognition and counting and begin learning to add and subtract numbers of varying values. Online math games for first graders introduce these concepts in a fun, adaptive environment that sets kids up for success as they progress through first grade and beyond.
