Sometimes solutions to tough problems are easier than they look...and I really love to find those kinds of solutions!On her blog,a math tutor named Celeste,told a moving tutoring story:https://www.wyzant.com/resources/blogs/471834/michelle_elementary_math
Celeste was working with a high school student who was "facing division problems,fractions,and vwin线上官网factoring,and she did not have the basic tools" - the 1st of which was her multiplication vwin线上官网facts!Celeste toppled her student's vwin线上官网learning barrier with a non threatening learning environment and 3 easy strategies!
- vwin000.comGames -Celeste showed her student a website with "fun,silly multiplication videovwin000.comgames." Her student played so often,she almost became "addicted!"
- Flash cards -5 minutes a day before any other work.When she "mastered" a vwin线上官网fact,it was removed from the deck.The flash cards were virtually gone in 2-3 weeks.
- Silly songs -She made up silly songs to help her student remember answers.
All 3 of Celeste's strategies are based on action and a "play" attitude.Since "play," is a child's 1st and most intuitive vwin线上官网learning tool,why not use it as a success strategy for vwin线上官网lvwin线上官网earning facts?
Though online vwin000.comgames are controversial among some, everyone agrees they are both fun and highly engaging!Interested?Try this resource of great online vwin线上官网fact pvwin000.comractice games://www.tvblogru.com/vwin000.comgames/all-games
Although students have successfully used flash cards since 1834 (Wikipedia),current brain research has improved their effectiveness.Data on short and long term memory shows we can strengthen our ability to retrieve information when it is paired with a meaningful visual image.
This resource for flashcards has improved success by pairing vwin线上官网facts with fact-story images.The silliness of the story-picture makes it easy to remember.Kids don't have to be relentlessly flashed with unknown vwin线上官网facts,they can use the picture as a "retention coach," ready to retrieve the product as needed.//www.tvblogru.com/resources/free-multiplication-flash-cards
