Judy Moody Goes to College!

I spent last year volunteering part-time in a second grade classroom, working with the kids at math. Although many of them were “at standard,” to me it seemed like they were seriously lacking in math fundamentals – not so much arithmetic as “number sense” – an intuitive understanding of numbers and how they work together. How do you help your kids develop that?

Read this book.

(Whether you have a boy or a girl, but especially if you have a girl who needs confidence in math)

It’s a kid’s book. Read it out loud to your kid, even if she’s a reader herself. Why? Because, like the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series, it has as much to teach parents as kids.
