I hope you all survived the snow and cold. All the time inside gave me a chance to explore some math websites. There are hundreds of ways for your child to practice math online, and listed below are just a few websites you may want to explore with your child.
Games that have high math density where every moment is spent calculating and thinking mathematically. I particularly liked the lessons that followed incorrect answers.
The games are broken down by topic: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and even geometry. The Thinking Blocks activity is a great way to practice word problems.
This website has hundreds of games divided up by topic. Children can even practice measurement, rounding, money, time and place value.
If you ever want to watch videos of math lessons with your child to better understand what we are doing in the classroom, Learn Zillion is a great resource. Simply search “learn zillion and the topic (i.e. rounding to the nearest ten and hundred)” and you will typically find several lessons. This week in class you child will be learning about the commutative, associative and distributive properties of multiplication. There are many great lesson on Learn Zillion that explain and illustrate these properties.
Thanks for supporting your child’s learning at home and have a great week.
