Program Can Help Primary Grade Students with Math

ALOHA Mind Math programs can help children in Kindergarten through Third Grade with basic math concepts and skills that they may missed in school, such as counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and money.

EDISON, NJ, February 28, 2014 – ALOHA Mind Math offers an answer to parents and teachers who are frustrated with their underachieving children in primary grades.

Once children are eight or nine years old they have learned a significant amount of math concepts. For example, children may grasp the early learning math concepts of counting to 10 or 100, but might not have learned other counting skills. Sometimes concepts are missed and it is not until a child begins learning higher math concepts that a misstep is noticed.

For example, an eight year-old may be able to count to 1000, count by 10’s and 100s, but may11681285_l be unable to count by two’s. This can affect everything from simple to complex math problems to fractions, measuring and money.

What can be done? When a parent notices that their child has challenges seek professional help immediately. This way the child can begin learning the basic math concepts and skills and move forward with their education. In the long run this will build the child’s confidence to handle routine daily math. Some of these skills may include, figuring out which grocery item is the best buy, count change correctly, and measure ingredients correctly when cooking and baking. Parents can start keeping track of the daily habits which involve math to make it a realization for the child of the importance to practice and learn the real implication of using math daily.

Everything an adult does involves some form of counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. This small observation is one that children can establish a solid foundation in education, build a brighter future, and affect every aspect of their entire life.

Top 5 Warning Signs a Child is Struggling in School and Needs Help

ALOHA Mind Math’s top 5 warning signs indicate a child’s learning could be suffering. It is important for parents to act quickly upon these signs.

EDISON, NJ, February 20, 2014 – According to ALOHA Mind Math, report cards are not thestruggling in school only signs a child needs help in school. Throughout the school year look for subtle and obvious signals that can indicate their learning is suffering and they are struggling in school.

1. Is the child’s morning routine draining for parents and/or the family?

If there is a drastic attitude or energy change then it is likely that something is wrong.

2. Has the child’s interest in school changed?

If the child used to enjoy school and suddenly turned to dislike a particular subject, teacher, or school overall, then this is another strong indicator that they are struggling or having some type of difficulties in school.

3. Has the frequency and amount of homework lessened?

Rarely do teachers not require daily homework, projects, or tests.  In the early years of education children had less homework, but skills increase with each grade, which can be a difficult concept for some children to grasp.

4. Is their school work performance degrading or unknown?

Since the curriculum compounds upon each lesson or grade level, if a child does not understand or can apply the basic concepts then they will struggle. Or, if they grasp the basics but as each unit or grade level progresses so do the curriculum and requirements.

5. Does the child not want to talk about school and become irritated when doing assignments?

There could be several reasons. The child could be bullied or uncomfortable in social settings. The loss of interest could come from not being challenged enough in the classroom. Or, it could that the child has difficulty focusing.

Children need continuous enrichment and encouragement to stimulate their mind. Below are five strategies for dealing with such challenges.

Be Proactive.

  1. Keep them on a regular sleep schedule. Together select clothes and plan breakfast the night before. Sometimes this is all that is necessary. If not, discuss what is bothering them.

  2. If their attitude or energy around school dramatically changes then look into it. Call the teacher.

  3. Instead of waiting for the report cards to put the writing on the wall, regularly review homework and projects together.

  4. If the child comes home without, or little homework, call their teachers to double check. Daily check assignments on the school’s website.

  5. Gently discuss their struggles with the teacher, subjects, homework, or classmates. If the child excels and is bored with school find an educational program to enrich and expand upon their creativity or academic excellence. If the child has focus issues consult the school.

ALOHA Learning Methods Stay Up-to-Date

Future Generations Will Benefit from Education Changes, Says Google Chairman: ALOHA Mind Math Recognizes the Education Reforms, their Learning Methods Stay Up-to-Date

ALOHA Mind Math recognizes that the education system is in a transition. ALOHA Mind Math programs adjust for educational changes.

ALOHA Mind Math recognizes that the education system is in a transition. Curriculum nationwide is changing via the Common Core Standards. In time the concept of the new guidelines will enable consistency nationwide, even if a student moves to another school district or even out of state.

School classrooms adopted technology early on of the internet age in the 1990s, adding a few computers in classrooms and in libraries. But in a technological world, the basics need to be taught, and using different methods than most adults learned.

In an MSNBC interview at the Education Nation Student Town Hall, Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman of Google, replied when a student asked about boredom between computers and school work, “There are many choices to learn. Maybe the best way to learn is not to sit there for eight hours bored. Maybe do a little lesson, a little question, talk to your friends, learn some more, do another lesson and so forth. The issue is going to be how does teaching change? What do the measurements say?”

No doubt most adults can recall instances when they were not challenged in school, or wished they could learn in another manner.

“When I was in school I was required to memorize the names of the 50 counties in Virginia. I remember how painful that was. Hopefully we’re taking the routine, the repetitive, and replacing it by creative, challenging and entertaining work,” said Schmidt.

Teachers at ALOHA Mind Math place an importance on making learning fun and challenging for their students. Each center teaches students to use both sides of their brain, enhance their creative thinking, collaboration, critical thinking, memory, and problem solving skills.

Each child is unique, which is why they tailor programs based upon their skill level and help them improve. This is the core of the ALOHA Mind Math curriculum.

Children, ages 5 years old through 12 years old, in our programs learn special techniques which enable them to remember details, concepts, lists, technical information, even solve complex math problems. Between fourth and sixth grade the amount of new knowledge and homework demands can be overwhelming for some.  Junior high students often have difficulties transferring to the increased intensity on higher level learning. Through ALOHA Mind Math and Language Arts programs students are able to deal with these pressures and challenges, actively participate in group projects and class, and perform well on tests, including essay tests. Overall students enjoy school, learning, and be the best they can be in all academic areas.

Parents see the value of ALOHA Mind Math’s philosophy, systems, and programs because they see the positive results in their child’s achievements and success in the center and at school.
