Just like it’s a good idea to read to your children, it’s also a good idea for you to do math together. Of course, parents often have their own anxieties about math. As with any other kind of anxiety, it’s important to try not to pass on your fears to your children.
Read-aloud a picture book with repetitive text. Pause to let child fill in the blank and continue the pattern. Make patterns with snack foods (e.g. pretzels, raisins, Cheerios) or candy (e.g. Skittles or M&M’s). Go on a scavenger hunt looking for patterns in nature (e.g. circular patterns in flowers, rings on tree trunks, or patterns on insects such as ladybugs or butterfly wings).
Early math is fundamental because children use math concepts in their daily routines. Nurturing the value of math skills in early youth may help alleviate the anxiety that an increasing number of older students experience who struggle with math. Negative self-talk in students creates a reticence to work through challenging problems in school. Children will achieve more if they are indoctrinated when young with a positive mindset that math can be enjoyable, math is not something to be afraid of, and making mistakes is part of the learning process.
