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.
With the predominance of digital audio and video in our daily lives, we left reading a little aside. However, these media present the facts without giving us a chance to reason. On the other hand, it is often said that reading is a passive activity. Nothing is further from the truth. Reading is a complex activity which consists of a large number of different acts.

If your third grader needs help with math, there are many useful tools that can downloaded directly from the computer. Math is a subject that is best taught with visual aids, making the lessons more tangible for students. Third grade can be particularly challenging when it comes to math, as this is the year that students are learning about fractions, measuring and weighing objects, graphing and counting money. Most importantly, third graders should be comfortable with the basics of math such as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. If your child is not comfortable with these basic components, it is almost inevitable that he or she will struggle with future math lessons.
