This is the question we parents are always trying to answer.
It’s good that children ask questions: that’s the best way to learn. All children have two wonderful resources for
learning — imagination and curiosity. As a parent, you can awaken your children to the joy of learning by encouraging their imagination and curiosity.
‘Helping Your Child Learn math’ is one in a series of books on different education topics intended to help you make the most of your child’s natural curiosity. Teaching and learning are not mysteries that can only happen in school. They also happen when parents and children do simple things together.
For instance, you and your child can: sort socks on laundry day — sorting is a major function in math and science; cook a meal together — cooking involves not only math and science but good health as well; tell and read each other stories — storytelling
is the basis for reading and writing (and a story about the past is also history), or play a game of hopscotch together –playing physical games will help your child learn to count and start on a road to lifelong fitness.
