Dividing numbers. After your child grasps the concept of dividing and the relationship with multiplication you can start working with numbers. Be sure your child is familiar with the format and signs for division. With the concept grasped, teaching division will become more about guided practice to help your child to become familiar with the division operation (although it’s really going to be a different type of multiplication practice.) Start by practicing division by 1, 2 and 3 and then gradually move up to 9. Use the worksheets to help.
You do not necessarily need to purchase a specific curriculum for kindergarten math. To recognize shapes and practice matching, you can either use ready-made worksheets or workbooks, or make some of your own.
For practicing some math skills like simple addition, there is just nothing more effective than a pencil and paper. These math worksheets start with simple addition (one-digit) math facts and progress to adding 2-digit numbers in columns. No regrouping is included in out grade 1 exercises.
Practicing addition with your child is a great way to get him excited about math! Young kids who are beginning to learn addition often need to see a visual representaion of any given problem. Many kids will use their fingers and toes, but make things more fun by using counters. You can use pieces of cereal, beads, mini marshmallows or anything you would like. Kids love switching things up with large-sized counters, so bust out pillows or purses to make learning addition even more fun.
