Love is in the air, and at Mathnasium, we're all about spreading the joy of learning, especially when it comes to math! As Valentine's Day approaches, we've found a unique way to intertwine the world of numbers with the season of love.
In our last blog, we spoke about the dreaded, and without guidance, dangerous “Summer Slide”. With Mathnasium and Mathnasium@home students can begin to make up lost ground, avoid the learning loss that typically accompanies summer break, and get ahead for the next academic year. But we are aware that the battle to fight the summer slide doesn’t take place in our center alone, but in your homes as well. So you can join us in this fight, we are reminding all of you of some ways for you to assist your students.
Empower your children. Your kids know a lot about how things work at school and how the structure is set up, so put that knowledge to use! Give them a chance to offer input to what their structure looks like. The atmosphere in your house is important, try considering:
Schedule-making can be a learning process. For children in 3rd grade and up, create a schedule with them that enables them to understand what it means, how to use it, and when to take breaks. Allow them to see the whole picture and then help break it down into smaller steps.
Together we will make sure that your student stays on track and gets ahead!
