One of the truths in life is that some children find math challenging and benefit from normalizing math in their lives. Everything from doing normal activities every day, including math, learning math through games, and practicing math skills through simple exercises, can significantly improve their ability to retain and improve their school achievement.

Doing Daily Activities That Involve Math

If you think about it, many chores and routines involve counting and basic arithmetic. Through these, children can normalize their approach to numbers, making it a smoother process to include them in their daily life. For example, choose an object to count on your way to school, like mailboxes or blue cars. Another easy way is asking them to read the temperature on your thermostat or your phone’s weather app.

Learning Math Through Games

Many games can help your child be more familiar with numbers without necessarily feel like they’re in math class. Games like Go Fish, Uno, or even Dominoes can help them feel more confident when learning math in a classroom setting. Go Fish is excellent for recognizing numbers, patterns, and memorization. Uno can be used to play the game, for number recognition and basic arithmetic exercises. Lastly, Dominoes can also help with number matching, as well as learning how to strategize.

Using Imaginative Play

Lastly, imaginative play is one of the easiest ways children can put real-life skills to the test. Think of a lemonade stand where they need to measure how many lemons, and how much water and sugar they will need. Or have they play grocery store where they will need to subtract how much change they need to give their customer. These are only two examples of imaginative play but there are as many possibilities as they can come up with.
