The best way to teach your child about math is to make it fun! Some kids “get” it, some kids don’t, but eventually they all catch up. Interactive math sites are among our favorite tools to use, but flash cards are always handy, too. Make your own on index cards – they’re just as effective, and cost way less!
P.S. Don’t forget to get an abacus (or make one, if you’re super creative)! They help with several math concepts, for all ages.
