In first grade it is essential that your child begin basic math facts. Most schools do a good job at starting basic math facts. From second grade to third, you need to ensure that your child becomes an expert on adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing all numbers between 0 and 12. You may need to get copies of worksheets or flash cards. This is the MOST important step that you can do to start the groundwork of your student being successful in math. Too many children today go through the first 6 grades lacking these skills. Without it, they cannot do fractions or any other higher concept. At the fourth grade level, and perhaps earlier, your child needs to be an expert on fractions. Anything and everything. Again, worksheets and extra instruction are probably a must. This will be an impossible task if your child has not followed through on tip #5 above.
I recommend getting one of these books when you first begin homeschooling and use it as a reference throughout your homeschool journey. Regardless of how long you homeschool, you will always have doubts and questions about how your child is performing.A scope and sequence book can put your mind at ease. Once you have a scope and sequence book, make a list of each area in math that he needs to work on for the school year. For example for grades three and four, by the end of the year in subtraction, your child should be able to: solve vertical and horizontal computation problems, review subtraction of 2 numbers whose sums would be 18 or less, subtract 1- or 2-digit number from a 2-digit number with/without renaming, subtract 1-, 2-, or 3-digit numbers from 3- and 4-digit number with/without renaming, subtract 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, or 5-digit number from a 5-digit number.
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.
