  • Creative Ideas for Using Worksheets
    that he or she will want to rise to the challenge Remember nothing worth doing is easy but for a child it s good to make it enjoyable A bad experience with a math worksheet could easily set the youngster off the whole subject entirely Use the elementary math worksheets that you know the class is capable of but then act as if you re not sure if they can do them Saying things like These problems might be very tricky for you is a great motivator Teachers should also watch they don t demoralize students accidentally Those who know certain things can inadvertently put off those who don t and it s especially easy for an adult to crush a child s confidence Always remember it s a teacher s job to facilitate and not take over To that end make sure to keep your hands off the student s elementary math worksheets even when they make mistakes that you would find east to correct There are three things you should never do as a teacher and these are Hold the worksheets up in front of the child when they can hold them by themselves Pick up a child s work uninvited and them what to do when you can just as easily give them a choice Another common problem occurs when the child struggles with a particular problem presented on the elementary math worksheets Here it s best for you to let them linger on it for a few minutes before solving it for them If you let frustration linger for too long it could become as demoralizing as the aforementioned mistake Remember to make it fun as well Although elementary math worksheets are an important phase in their development you don t need to let them know

  • Manipulatives for Teaching Times Tables
    3 groups of 2 are the same thing This will help them understand that 2 x 3 and 3 x 2 are the same thing Making sure students understand groups and grouping will help when you begin teaching division Dividing into groups will make sense Another method of teaching grouping can be done with a dice game Divide students into pairs Give each pair one die The first person rolls the die The number they roll is the number of circles they draw on their paper If they roll 3 for example they draw 3 circles They roll the die a second time The number they roll is how many dots they put in each circle So if they roll a 4 they put 4 dots in each circle This gives them 3 groups of 4 dots They count the dots and that s their score for the round Each student plays 4 rounds The highest score wins Times Tables Once your students understand grouping they are ready for times tables While the old method of rote learning repeating the tables over and over until they are memorized can still be used many students learn better if you use methods that engage their minds and the rest of their senses Play a memory matching game Make a deck of cards with the problems being learned such as the 3s from the multiplication table and turn these face down on one side of the play area Make a second deck of cards with the answers and turn these face down on the other side of the play area The student flips over a card from the problem side then goes to the answer side and flips a card If the answer is the right card then both are left face up and the student gets another turn If not then both are turned back over and the next student gets a turn This game can be used in any size classroom Just divide the students into teams and give each team the needed cards As the students learn more of the times table problems and answers can have more variety allowing them to practice more than one set at a time Word games There are several types of word games that can help students learn times tables Rhymes Try to rhyme the facts I m sure there s tricks to be plenty sure that 4 times 6 is 24 Sure rhymes with 4 tricks rhymes with 6 and plenty sure rhymes with 24 Some facts rhyme on their own like 6 times 8 is 48 Mnemonics Use stories to remember facts The family of 4 went to dinner at 8 on 32nd street Cadence A cadence is the rhythm that soldiers use when marching The students can come up with their own for time tables For example 6 times 6 is 36 eating oysters makes me sick 6 times 7 is 42 better stop and tie my shoe You can even
