Ways to Help a Third Grader with Math Homework
  • Go over the directions with your child and find out what she does and doesn't understand about the assignment.
  • Ask her where she thinks she should begin.
  • Ask if there is a similar problem in her textbook or one she did in class.
  • Suggest that he draw a picture to solve the problem.
  • Ask guiding questions as your child works on the problem, such as "What should you do next?", "Is this answer reasonable?", "Did you answer the question?", "Can you solve it another way?"
  • Please don't do the homework for your child.
  • Remember to point out to your child how important math is in everday life!
