EUREKA Math HELP
Looking for help with your child's math? Check out the resources below.
Dear Parents, Guardians, and General Math Helpers Outside of the Classroom,
Welcome to the Eureka math resources for CCSS students' helpers. Not all of these curated resources were created by us, but we have collected them for you so that you can get an idea of what your student's lessons focus on in class and help, if needed.
If you have a student in school today, you probably learned the foundations of math in a very different way from them. You and I learned the art of "answer getting," and we were good at it. Well, some of us were...some of us needed the math knowledge about numbers that really wasn't taught in class. We were instructed to follow formulas (algorithms) and not ask, "Why?" Some of us picked up a working number sense over time as we got older and learned, by experience, in real world settings.
Your children are now learning that number sense you learned as an adult in their classes today. What would the learning process look like if you taught kids how to think about math and not merely plug numbers into a formula? What would it look like to provide them with the skills to figure math out? Well, the learning process looks very different for our children than merely memorizing and getting answers. Of course that’s part of it, but not the foundation-building that is done in the beginning to understand the way math works.
We created this site to help you navigate this new mathematical arena. This site is a work in progress. We will add quality resources as we create or find them.
Use the concepts you see in these lessons to create fun activities around the house, in the store, at the park, or in the car. Number sense can be reinforced anywhere!
Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher if your child is struggling.
Thank you for partnering with us to provide the best education for your child.
How To Help Your Child Improve in Reading Fluency and Comprehension at Home
Two things happen when we read. Our brains decode combinations of letters into words and then understanding is constructed of what was decoded or read. When brains have to work industriously to decode the words, comprehension, or the understanding of the idea represented by the combinations of words, does not occur. There are several simple things parents can do with their children which result in huge outcomes in their children's lives.
Read to your children. Have your children read to you. Have your child retell the story you or he read. Practice sight words so that your child will master fluency skills, thus improving comprehension skills. Talk about what was read. These simple tasks will result in strong readers.
Use these videos with your child to reinforce reading and recognition of sight words.
