Most parents want their children to be able to learn from an early age. Especially when their child is at a golden age. Children of the golden age are mostly spent in kindergarten. So it is important for kindergarteners to learn simple math such as basic additions and subtraction.
Here is some basic math you could do for your kindergarteners at home.
Teach your children to know words for numbers, such as ‘one’, ‘two’, ‘three’, ‘four’, is for 1,2,3,4. At this stage, just take it easy, let them learn numbers from 0 until 20. It is also a good way to learn how to write as well.
When you already teach to know numbers, you have to teach to count as well. First of all, let them count 1 to 10 until they know the order. Then you can add 11 to 20. Repeat it until 100. Just remember to make it as fun as playing hide and seek.
After they learn about numbers, then you can teach them about additions. First of all, tell them that additions are ‘putting together’ and ‘adding to’. You can start with basic additions such as 1 + 1, teach them to use their fingers.
Subtractions are the opposite of additions. After learning additions, you can tell them about subtractions, it is like ‘taking away from’ and ‘taking apart’. Same as additions, you can start to wish basic subtractions such as 1 – 1 = 0. The easiest way is using their own finger.
5. Makes small assessments
After your kids learn about basic maths, make a test for them. Kindergarten Assessment Math doesn’t conclude a paper works. Just talk to them and ask a few questions and give them small gifts if their answer is right.
After teaching them about basic math, you should do simple Kindergarten Assessment Math to test their comprehension. But, just remember that your kids are still kindergarten, if the result is not like the way you expected, then it's okay, they still have a lot of time to learn.
1. Try to put the basic math concepts into your everyday activities together. For example, let the count the stairs or let them count the apples you bought from the supermarket.
2. Put basic additions concepts when you ask them to do daily activities. For example, give them 2 apples, then give them another 3 apples, let them count the result.
3. Don’t forget to make it fun! Let them know that learning is fun, so you better prepare some gifts for them when their answer is correct.
