    How can I help my child with math at home?

    - Encourage your child to identify and solve everyday problems involving numbers.

    - Talk about the importance of math and how it is used in daily life.

    - Show patience- Just because your child seemed to understand a math concept yesterday doesn't mean he or she will remember it       today. Kids (and adults)  usually need multiple exposures to a new skill or concept before it sticks. 
    - Give praise- celebrate effort and accomplishments. Keep the tone positive to keep frustration and anxiety low. 
    - Schedule time- choose a regular time for math homework, before your child gets too tired to handle any challenges.  

    Review your child’s homework and ask them to explain how they arrived at their solutions to problems. Fixing any errors is not

         necessary, errors brought to school open up discussion and further student learning and understanding.
