Patterns and Routines for Learning Math

Kids get things like the times table through repetition and continued exposure.

Don't feel bad if your child turns running every time you break out the flash cards, while they may work for some children they no longer prove to for many. This is due in part to the tech savvy kids of today with the high tech video games and multi sensory learning. So lets look further into the future for more methods to learn the times table.

Make Learning Fun

Any subject kids find difficult is best when made to be fun.

This takes the stress out of the picture, all kids learn best when there is no stress involved. The bottom line is that if you make learning fun is always the most memorable option. It's all about the memory skills. One of the most important messages you can send your child is there is no one way to get math. Many kids struggle with math and feel horrible when they don't get it in the class room. Remind your child learning math takes practice and there is more than one way to get it making the class room instruction easier.

Use very fun videos like this school house multiplication rock video. Playing this video on a routine basis helps kids become familiar with and memorize the multiplication table. Using this in conjunction with the other skills and math facts included here today gives your child what they need to both get it and build on accumulative math skills. Math can be fun and stress free we only need to provide our kids with the tools to make it work for them.

Happy Learning

anything that helps kids learn math is great. If a child isn't getting math its because they're missing something, need to review, this is a great way to make sure kids get what they missed that has them performing poorly in math. Another great and helpful article Miss Katiem2, Thanks, Scott
