Let's support your child to organize their thinking. Thinking Maps are the 8-visual tools your child needs. A Flow Map can illustrate the steps for getting ready to go to Grandma's house.A Tree Map to categorize different stores for food shopping. So, if your child needs help getting started when they need to write. Ask them what "Thinking Map" they think they should use.

Building Your Child's Language & Vocabulary in Math
Each day your child is being asked to solve problems, follow instructions and understand and use math vocabulary
correctly. These skills require a strong command of math language and vocabulary. Reading books that demonstrate characters using math to solve real world problems can help to build your child’s interest, confidence and vocabulary all at once!
Quack and Count by Keith Baker and Elevator Magic by Stuart J. Murphy are great stories to introduce the topics of addition and subtraction. Some engaging books for counting are Feast For 10 by Cathryn Falwell and Anno’s Counting Book by Mitsumasa Anno. Grow your vocabulary and knowledge of measurement and size with Who Eats First? By Hae-won Yang and Inch by Inch by Leo
Lionni. Patterns and algebra can be explored
through Anno’s Magic Seeds, by Mitsumasa Anno and Two of Everything by Lily Toy Hong.
Help your child to foster a love of math and make the math come alive by reading these and other books together.
