A mnemonic is a kind of memory device that helps a person remember information she might otherwise forget. A common mnemonic that children learn in school is the name Roy G. Biv to remember the colors of the rainbow (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet). students might use the mnemonic Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally to help them remember where to begin calculating. Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally represents the correct order of operations: Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction.
Number pizzas. Tell child, “I’m a chef and I’m making pizza.” Set red plastic chips on a paper plate and ask “How many pepperonis do I have?” Next, “Can you make your pizza have the same number, or matching pepperonis, as mine?” This game teaches concepts of similarities and differences – the same number can be organized in a different way.
While you are doing these things, don’t shy away from using the correct vocabulary — we want children to get used to hearing about fractions, inches, multiplication and percentages — and explicitly call what you’re doing “math.” Your goal is to make math familiar and accessible.
