Child in grade1 too early to start math
You may be surprised by how important early math skills are. Research studies have shown that math abilities in grade K and grade 1 are the biggest predictor of future academic success.
While the research is pretty clear on the best way to teach math, it simply hasn’t made its way to most schools. So even if a school may be using doing many activities, using educational aids and toys, it doesn’t guarantee that your child is getting the best inputs.
You can find links to a few research studies below. In this article, we help you identify the core principles of early math education. You can evaluate yourself if your child is getting all the right inputs. If yes, you have nothing to worry about.
