There are many benefits of reading. Let us take a look at what the top benefits are as to why we should read books every day. READING enriches vocabulary, improves memory, facilitates the acquisition of experience, facilitates the learning in general, expands knowledge of the language, improves our writing, awakens intelligence, improves focus and concentration, improves analytical thinking skills, activates the imagination, clarifies ideas, reduces stress, perfects the culture, provides us with solutions to problems already solved by others, puts us in touch with the brightest minds of the present and the past, widens our outlook and gives more opportunities to make a success, help us to understand the inheritance we have, and it helps in the process of building a strong and generous personality.
The answer for the above question is hidden in a simple example. I always give the example of stairs to my students, and giving the same example in this article. I compare the steps of a staircase to the concepts in mathematics. As this is very hard to reach higher floors of a building without stairs (or elevators these days), same way learn higher concepts in mathematics without learning basic concepts is very hard. People have to start from the ground, then first step, second, third and so on to reach their destination floor. Exactly the same way students have to start from Kindergarten, then grade one, grade two and three and so on to reach their math destination. Also, if some of the steps are broken in the staircase, it is still hard to reach the desired floor using those steps. Same way, if you are missing some of the basic concepts from elementary grades, math for you is still hard.
One way to teach them about money is to make a game out of it. Have some change available and let them win the change when asked a question. Make each question a different value. An example would be question number 1 would be worth 3 cents. Lay the money out for them to choose the three cents and if they do it correctly the first time they get to keep the money. Have some prizes at the end of the game so that they can purchase items again counting back the money to you to make that purchase. This will teach them how to count with out them realizing they are learning. To them it is just a game but they will learn how to count money.
