SiMPLE-TO-USE MATH BOOK HELPS PARENTS RAISE LEARNING POTENTIAL FOR THEIR CHILDREN
Nationwide -- Do you wait for your 3-year old child to enter kindergarten before he learns number relationships? Or, do you bring him into a math environment that you have created in your home?
In a new book entitled, Create A Math Enviroment: Revised Edition, parents can find simple ways to show their children how to become comfortable with number concepts. Multiplying? Not a problem. Fractions? Not a problem.
The subtitle for this book is “Touch to Learn Math.” Drawing upon children’s natural tendency to understand ideas easily through the power of touch, author, Vivian W. Owens, says that this book will allow you to help children at whatever stage you find them. A method of teaching a 3-year old one-to-one correspondence may be the same method that you use to teach a 14 year-old the same concept. Create A Math Enviroment: Revised Edition guides you through the process.
With its simple approach to learning, the book embraces intuitive learning. Intuitive math takes on a reality that will delight parents, educators, young and old learners, and any casual reader. Targeted for understanding by anyone, this book has been shown to be very clear and very readable.
Create A Math Enviroment: Revised Edition follows in the footsteps of another Owens’ parent-helper book entitled, Parenting For Education: Revised Edition. Owens, a former classroom teacher, says that she continues to see a need for parents’ intervention in the learning development of their children. She believes that parents can play a dramatic role in raising the learning potential for their children as their children enter the school room, and as they grow from grade to grade.
Her books benefit children in any setting, whether they are in public or private schools or in a home-school environment.
On a monthly basis, parents can find “Parenting for Education” articles by Owens on her website at www.escharpublications.com. Some of these articles reflect a science or math how-to aspect.
