Dear Families –

We love having your students in Heart Math Tutoring! It is very important that students are working with numbers and reading outside of school. Here are some tips.

Talk About Math –

Ask questions and talk about numbers in everyday situations! (Leer una carta en español aquí.)

  • Telling Time: “How much longer until the party?” “How long have we been waiting in the dentist’s office?”
  • Money and Shopping: “How much money will I need to buy two pizzas?”
  • Counting and Chores: “We need five forks on the table.” “Bring me three pairs of socks.”
  • Measurement: “Who is taller?” “I need 3 cups of flour for this recipe. Please measure it for me.”
  • Food: Items like M&M’s, crackers, and Cheerios are great to use to practice patterns, adding, and subtracting.
  • Items around the House: Read the names and numbers on boxes of food and cans at home.

Active Reading –

Click for videos in Spanish or English with important tips for reading at home with your children.

  • Ask Questions

  • Connect to your child’s world
