Getting students to succeed at mathematics is no accident. There are essential components that every K-6 math teacher should incorporate into their teaching.
Every person studying mathematics should memorize the addition facts 0+0 to 9+9 and multiplication facts 0x0 to 9×9 for instant recall. These memorized facts are a key foundation to later mathematics study.
Many adults believe that once kids reach a certain age they shouldn’t use counter, blocks, etc. to learn math. Not true!
When kids love math, they try harder, they are more motivated to try harder questions, and they feel better about themselves. All K-6 teachers should aim for every student to absolutely love math!
