Learning Tips

(1)

Make or purchase number charts that lists all the whole numbers to one hundred. Display one chart in your child’s room, and keep one available in the family room or whatever room in which your child plays. Refer to the chart often, not only counting numbers while pointing to them each time, but ask questions such as, “Do you notice any patterns on the number chart?” These experiences will help your child internalize the number structure and understand the value of numbers.

(2)

Use Touch Math Website to supplement and enhance your child’s learning. After reviewing the web site, make a chart of the numbers 1 – 10, adding the Touch Math dots. Use this chart for quick review. This will help your child understand the value of each number.

Once a day, ask your child to recite numbers. In the beginning, your child will not know all the numbers to 100, so you must set smaller goals. Start with counting 1 – 20. Once your child can do this without assistance, add another 10 so that he/she is counting to 30, and so on.

(4)

Once your child has demonstrated ability to orally recite number, start working on the writing portion. Starting with numbers 1 – 10, sit with your child and write the numbers. It is very important to model the writing for your child, and physically help him/her write them out as well. Be sure to use lined paper as this will assist your child in writing numbers that are proportionally correct. Also, it is important to have developmentally appropriate crayons and pencils (large size) so that your child is able to hold them correctly.

(5)

Write Board Fun – As you are teaching your child to write the numbers, use of a white board with colored markers (make sure they are washable) is a fun and engaging activity that children love. Experiment. If your child would like to make silly numbers or crazy font type writing, you should encourage this, as long as the basic form is correct. This is a fun way your child will learn numbers that allows him/her to be creative.
