When your children have their addition facts memorized, they make fewer mistakes. One of the most common comments made by homeschooling mothers is how many math problems their children miss on a daily basis. One way to put a stop to this is by having your children memorize these facts. Having to stop and calculate basic facts on each and every math problem makes for a very long math lesson with many mistakes. This is frustrating to both the parent and the child. Worksheets should not be used as "busy" work. This is a method used by overworked and overwhelmed public school teachers. With many students working in one room at different levels, teachers have no choice but to give "busy" work to maintain a sense of order in the classroom.
Teaching equations to kindergarten children needs to be a hands on activity using tangible resources where children can explore, experiment and self correct. At this age, printed workbooks and worksheets should be avoided and manipulative materials used instead. So bring out all the counters, figurines, shapes and blocks you can find because this is the way in which this age group of children learn best. A simple game with a dice and counters can teach equations. Throw the dice and put out the required number of counters. Throw again and do the same. Then physically put all of the counters together to show one group and count them again (addition).
First and foremost, one should not forget the importance of reading literature in the language that one studies no matter what the language might be. Kindle, Barnes and Noble, and other providers offer an excellent selection of downloadable books. Many prefer PDF books that can be stored in the iBooks Application of their iPads or Androids. Most experts agree that the best English speakers and writers are those who have taken the time to read extensively in the various genres including but not limited to romance, literary fiction, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. Writers of great books tend to exemplify the best English so one should not bypass the digital book as a valuable tool in a world that tends to provide the fast gratification of attaining knowledge through online programs.
