Did you know? Your presence and involvement in the learning process will both encourage and support your child in his/her learning? Some everyday activities that you and your child can do as a family can prepare and support your child’s learning of lower primary-level Mathematics.  

Here are the following tips: 

Create a homework routine

Work out a study timetable with your child, and guide him/her to set priorities. Encourage him/her to complete his homework daily – your support and supervision will help your child work towards his/her academic goals.

Focus on effort, not mistakes

As a parent, you can help make learning a truly educational experience, rather than a stressful one. Let your child know that you recognise the effort he/she is putting into the assignments. When it comes to mistakes, you can check if your child knows where and why he/she has gone wrong and help him/her if you can. Your encouragement can also instill in your child the confidence to seek help from his/her teachers.
