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".

This age group need simple language instead of mathematical terms. These activities are laying the foundations for further learning.

Going hunting with your kids or grandchildren is, in itself, a terrific experience for both adult and youngster. Sharing a favorite pastime with your favorite people creates a camaraderie that lasts a lifetime.

Nothing seemed to improve his C in reading.
