Using Math to Think about Things (5-26-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:      All kids can use math to think about things.

PRACTICE: Find something that your child is doing today that you can connect  to numbers and math.

For example, when he helps you cook, you can count things or divide things into parts (for young children) or cut a recipe in half or adjust the cooking time (for older children).

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, IGGY PECK, ARCHITECT.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
