Statistically, American kids’ reading test scores are rising. Reading to them, and letting them read to you are partly responsible. But unfortunately, Math scores aren’t rising. Many of us have Math “anxiety” but here is a way to make Math fun again.
Kids also like games at bedtime, and math-problem games are actually one of their favorites. Recognizing that was one of the reasons Bedtime Math was born. This non-profit will send out daily emails with suggested math problems for preschoolers who count on their fingers, for little kids and for bigger kids, as well. There are no flash cards or anything else that invites math anxiety. Visit bedtimemathproblem.org for more information
