Our math teaching methods, preschoolers

Very soon, the daughter will go to school, and we are increasingly paying attention to preparing for the first class. And if we are doing well with writing and reading, we sometimes have to suffer with mathematics.

I understand my daughter very well, because even the numbers are difficult for me. Perhaps this is what the humanitarian mindset is called. But her husband freely performs all actions in his mind and uses a calculator in rare cases.

Recently, my daughter and I have achieved great success, and I hope that our methods will be useful to you too.

When your fingers run out, they are the ones who move – counting sticks. In order to master the basic skills of counting with numbers, they are indispensable. It took us a few hundred times to carry out simple arithmetic operations with them in order to bring the actions to automaticity.

I don’t know what teachers think about this method, but I still use it. Its essence is to decompose one of the addends into two parts in order to reach the first sum. For example, to add 8 and 7, I do an 8 in the mind of an operation plus 2 plus 5.

Folding and subtracting in a bar is not a higher mathematics and not at all as difficult as it seems. It was enough for me once to explain to my daughter the principle of this method, and now she clicks examples with two and three-digit numbers, like nuts.

Skills are good, but skills without practice are forgotten very quickly. I will not lie that we are engaged every day, but once every 2-3 days the daughter decides on a mandatory basis examples – at least twenty-thirty in one sitting.

Sometimes you have to go to extreme measures – to encourage cartoons and other benefits. But now my goal is to turn my daily activities into a habit.

It is important for the child to know what the purpose of these classes is and what is mathematics needed for. Here we have the same tactics for the whole study. I try to explain to my daughter that being smart is great, and learning better than anyone is even better.

That is why we never go unnoticed by her successes. And this is not the standard clever you, but more specific phrases.

Occupation in any case should not be a punishment. Otherwise, the child may become disgusted with the learning process and each attempt to seat him behind notebooks will cause a natural protest.

I, frankly, am not particularly interested in the successes and skills of other children, my goal is to teach my daughter to add and subtract numbers freely. And this is the minimum program. Maybe we can master the multiplication.
