# TALK ABOUT A MATH SKILL THAT YOU LEARNED IN YOUR PRIMARY/ELEMENTARY SCHOOL.

### what should teach to children?

We all want our kids to succeed in math. And, in most districts, standardized tests are the way understanding is measured. Yet, no one wants to teach to the test. Being intentional and using creative approaches to your instruction can get students excited about math. These 11 essential strategies in teaching mathematics can make this your classes’ best math year ever.

Counting cubes, number rods, and other math materials help kindergartners work with a larger set of numbers. Children also begin to use physical materials to solve simple addition and subtraction problems, like how many cookies they’ll have left after they’ve shared some with a friend. They’ll learn about time, using tools like clocks and calendars regularly in the classroom. While they’re not fully able to tell time or even realize exactly what a month or a second is, they’ll begin to understand that one measures a longer amount of time, and the other a short.

First graders begin to grasp more abstract mathematical concepts. Children are introduced to time, money, and the meaning of numbers greater than those they can count. Because first graders still learn best by working with physical objects, teachers give children materials to use during math lessons such as number cubes, pattern blocks, and color rods.

First graders start to do simple addition and subtraction problems. They learn to count by 2s, 5s, and 10s, which will help them later when doing math equations. They also work with 2- and 3-dimensional geometric shapes.
