Fun Math Lessons for Kids

By Edited May 1, 2016 0 0

One of the toughest things for young kids to learn in elementary school is math. It's important that a good teacher makes the education process fun and therefore keeps the children interested in learning more each day when they go to school. So here today I want to talk about some fun math lessons for kids that teachers can use in the classroom to boost the thought process of those little monsters.

I remember always finding it interesting dealing with money as a little kid. When you're young it seems like money is an adult thing and therefore it's interesting to play with and learn about at that age. In most cases situations involving just some loose change can lead to many fun math lessons for kids. Not only does it teach them the value of change but also allows them to work on basic skills such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The situation we talked about above with money can easily apply to other things as well. What could lead to more fun math lessons for kids than ones involving candy. Small pieces such as skittles works just as well as change for teaching adding and subtracting to young children in the classroom. When everything is all done and the students have done a good job then there is candy laying around to be enjoyed by everyone which is always a good thing as well.

One of the most common uses of candy to create fun math lessons for kids is the use of a hershey chocolate bar. The way they are made is perfectly designed to help educate children on fractions. They can be broken down into blocks to show exactly how fractions work. I've seen this done or planned by teachers in the past on several occasions and the students usually find it very interesting to say the least.

With the advances in technology there are some very fun math lessons for kids out there on the computer and some even online. Many students enjoy games of some form or fashion and by using the computer they get to work on several skills at the same time. If a person does a quick search there are some fun online math games for children where they can even go up against students from other schools in some cases. I would've found that interesting in school but instead we just had Number Crunchers and Oregon Trail. I'm not complaining Oregon Trail was a fun game.

Just keep in mind that when students have fun in the classroom it keeps them wanting to come back to learn more the next day. Hopefully these fun math lessons for kids were just a start and will get some creative juices flowing to come up with more ideas down the road.
