Play a magnetic fish game with cardboard fish with a paper-clip and a piece of dowel and string with a magnet on the end as a fishing rod. Count the fish in the pond. When one gets caught subtraction how many are left? Division can be as simple as a sharing exercise. "There are 4 people here and I have 8 counters. Let us see how many we will get each". Use play dough or counters or blocks to make groups of items. Talk about what happens when you put groups together (multiplication). Make the terminology you use simple. This age group need simple language instead of mathematical terms. These activities are laying the foundations for further learning.
Math is a basic subject and hence, it is included in the curriculum from the kindergarten level. However, doing math is not at all a good experience for all students. The subject needs more concentration and step-by-step understanding. Students cannot follow the same methodology for math preparation as they generally do for other subjects including geography, chemistry, physics and others. Math needs more practice and this is one of the subjects in which students can score well and improve their overall grades in exams. This subject has broad real life applications from purchasing groceries to maintaining bank transactions. We use math everywhere. We start learning math from our childhood days, for example counting flowers and birds with our parents. Moreover, some students face difficulties while solving math and to overcome these learning problems, some steps are discussed below.
Math is a subject that many kids have trouble with as they progress through school. It is essential that math basic skills be mastered early on, as these skills build the foundation for understanding harder concepts introduced in higher grades. First grade math contains quite a few important skills, and using online games may be able to give students the help they need in order to become fluent in working with numbers. In kindergarten, kids learn simple math skills like number recognition and counting. They are able to begin to recognize that higher numbers are bigger numbers and can understand concepts like counting by twos and tens. Using online games with these children when they reach first grade can help them transition between beginning math skills and more complex numerical concepts. Providing a wide variety of different games in an entertaining online environment gets kids excited about tackling new ideas and puts math in a positive context. Once the foundation has been laid for basic comprehension and computational skills, children can use these games to progress even further.
