The idea that an understanding of math and language fundamentals helps children do better in schools is not surprising. However, the degree to which early math skills play a role is. "The paramount importance of early math skills - of beginning school with a knowledge of numbers, number order and other rudimentary math concepts -- is one of the puzzles coming out of the study," said Duncan.
After knowing the basics, children are taught beginning and ending blends, how to identify consonant digraphs (such as "sh" in the word "she"), what the long vowel sounds are, such as the "a" in "cape", and the use of R-controlled vowels (which are also called murmur diphthongs, as in the "ar" sound in such words as "car", "guitar" and "Arthur"). Diphthongs are the use of two vowels which slur together to make a single sound, such as the "o" and "i" in the word "moisture". Using additional worksheets these practices can help students more quickly recognize the joining of vowels which will help them improve their reading speed.
Moreover, some math software programs are available also in different languages such as Spanish and French. There are also those with a Learning Management System (LMS) that automatically tracks students test scores and provides the teacher with a database to sort and print as needed. Kindergarten and 1st grade math students will be able to start at the beginning with the basic concepts of relative position followed by counting and number sequences. Second grade math students and third grade math students will benefit from practicing sequences before moving on to addition and subtraction. Fourth grade math students may first review addition before moving on to multiplication. While fifth grade math students will review the basics of multiplication before learning the detailed steps of long division. When reaching sixth grade, students will benefit from reviewing the material studied in previous years and supplement with challenging worksheets including the concept of time, geometry, figural analogies and much more.
