Helping Your Child With Math

Filed under: Parents — Mrs. Rayburn @ 3:09 pm


1.  Encourage your child to write down all assignments in their agenda book.

2.  Follow the progress your child is making in math. Check with your child daily about his homework.

3.  If you don’t understand your child’s math assignments, engage in frequent communication with me.

4.  If your child is experiencing problems in math, contact me to learn whether he or she is working at grade level and what can be done at home to help improve academic progress.

5.  Use household chores as opportunities for reinforcing math learning such as cooking and repair activities.

6.  Try to be aware of how your child is being taught math, and don’t teach strategies and shortcuts that conflict with the approach being taught at school.
