"Education is the most powerful weapon
which you can use to change the world”, said Nelson Mandela.
3 Quick Reminders
1 It's easy to forget that children are like sponges. They soak up whatever is in front of them (no matter what developmental stage they are in).
2 Your child doesn't need to be Einstein to start learning mathematics at any age. And that's because they are born with math hardwired into their genetic DNA.
3 If you want students to succeed, give them a crystal clear pathway and quality materials to guide each step of their learning journey (at a bare minimum).
Makes complete sense, right?
Well, That's Where We Get Into Trouble
Here's the thing.
Finding a quality pre-k and kindergarten mathematics program comes with BIG challenges like:
Out-of-date curricula that fall short of today's academic standards.
Repetitive and boring materials which lead to learning delay.
Missing fun, practical activities, and exercises to stimulate curiosity.
Busy work that lacks variety and fails to engage a child's imagination.
Teaching methods that focus solely on memorization instead of encouraging a child to develop the ability to solve problems by thinking through possible solutions.
But most of all, they fail to utilize and develop NUMBER SENSE!
A Lot of Parents Didn't Know
According to the Seattle Times news article in 2013, parents didn't know how much was expected at the end of the kindergarten. "Kindergarten is like first grade was seven or eight years ago...." (yikes)
The article continues to explain that the fall 2012 statewide kindergarten data showed many 5 and 6-year-olds do not have the skills expected for entering school levels.
And guess what... the biggest deficit was in math!
Only 52 percent of the 21,811 kids tested have the math abilities they should have.
Wow, that was more than four years ago...
and teaching number sense is one of the keys to prepare your child in mathematics.
Give Them a Head Start
Number sense... ever hear of it?
Number sense refers to your student's fluidity and flexibility with numbers - It helps them understand the relationship of numbers one to another (not just memorization).
Researchers consider number sense of prime importance for children in early elementary education, and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics made number sense a focus area of pre-k through 2nd-grade mathematics education.
Good teachers and parents everywhere realize that finding a quality math program can be quite challenging.
Plus who has the time to put it all together themselves?
However, now the program is done for you... and your students will love it!
