A child’s level of motivation is a more critical factor in determining how and what he or she learns than almost all other considerations. If we can help parents embrace an approach that focuses on collaboration, we will foster the positive interpersonal relationships that improve a child’s motivation to learn. When help is provided in this way, it is not enabling.
When a child is struggling in school, a comprehensive psychoeducational evaluation conducted early on with periodic reevaluations can drastically change their trajectory and maximize their chances for academic success.
Ten activities – and not a single worksheet or flashcard. They’ll get plenty of those when they resume school. I could continue for hours, but I hope these “games” will at least suggest a basic framework from which you can create your own activities. Even in the midst of this severe health crisis, rest assured you’re making special memories that will last a lifetime.
Students across elementary and secondary schools often experience difficulty learning math. This is problematic as students are required to meet certain benchmarks (e.g., passing algebra) in order to earn a diplomas, gain admittance to college, and prepare for certain careers. If at any point in their academic career a student experiences difficulty with math, educators must provide appropriate support for the student.
