What’s Next?

Kids at this age love stories. Feeling comfortable telling math stories will help your child later on, when she needs to solve word problems. Telling math stories doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Get your child started by saying the first part of the problem yourself. Then ask your child, “What comes next?” For example, “Five ducks were swimming in a pond…what comes next?” She can write or draw the math story to develop her creativity and help her solve the problem. Remember to keep the stories fun — use favorite animals or characters from books as your story-starters.
