Math For Families: Helping Your Child With Math At Home

Teachers help build children’s mathematical thinking at school. Families help build it at home. Research shows that an ongoing partnership with families can help children develop math understanding. This resource suggests ways families can support children’s math development by doing activities at home. Teachers and parents help children view themselves as able learners of math through using real objects and encouraging them to talk about their learning.
