Math Facts are important because they form the building blocks for higher-level math concepts. For example, adding and subtracting larger numbers, telling time, counting money, measurement, and long multiplication and division are all concepts that are significantly easier for a child to learn once he has mastered his Math Facts and has developed a keen number sense.
You can find lots of different kinds of basic kindergarten math workbooks at Amazon. You don’t need anything too fancy to practice these concepts, so workbooks from many different publishers can work equally well.
Here’s a simple game: Have a bunch of foam numbers and/or plastic magnetic numbers, and make a heap of them between you and the child. You pick one, hold it up high and call out loud its name, such as ”Number five!” and put it to you personal pile.
With a little practice, he’ll learn how to visualize the numbers and even manipulate them mentally. Because the numbers are organized on the ten-frame, he can bring them to mind and imagine moving the counters to find sums.
Ideally, children should master the addition facts in first grade or at the beginning of second grade so they’re well-prepared to tackle second-grade math topics like word problems and multi-digit addition. But no matter what age your child is, learning the addition facts will make her much more confident and successful in math. If your older child hasn’t mastered the addition facts, it’s not too late.
Aim for no more than 3 seconds per fact, and less if possible. But, it depends a lot on your child. Children who process information very quickly are quite capable of knowing each fact in less than 1 second, but children who are slower processors may always need a few seconds. You’re the parent and know your child best, so adjust your expectations to your individual child.
Instead of overwhelming your child with all of the addition facts at once, first break the facts into smaller groups.
