Math sight words sentences are hard for some elementary aged kiddos.
One of my children excels in math, until it comes to word sentences.
He is reading, but not quite confident enough for his brain to read and solve math equations at the same time as deciphering words.
Time for a confidence booster!
Math Sight Words
I went through the math work sheets that he had most recently completed and we wrote down all the common words. I was amazed at how many of the words repeated between the questions.
See the printable that we made filled with the common math words. We printed out the words and made a set of cards to help our son gain confidence.
We practiced the words and used some of our toys to be the “people” in the math word sentences.
Mix-up the words and grab handfuls of beads or other small objects. We loved using our tan puzzle pieces.
As we practiced our homework with new problems using the same words I could see our son’s confidence growing.
I hope this will help him in the future.
