Pranshi is now in early years of learning, and she'll learn well, if exposed to mathematical puzzles, in a way that it's almost coming from day-to-day things in her surroundings. for e.g. the way number-buttons are in a lift to understand an order/ascending/descending- many more similar ways. 2018-09-21 15:05:05

More than anything else, it's important for pranshi to get the concepts right, so for that purpose, it's best that you first try with mathematical puzzles and also using day-to-day experiences to help her learn mathematical concepts. 2018-09-21 15:07:10

The classes mentioned by you and the similar ones would play . a more constructive role depending on the specific need for your child's mathematical interest at a slightly later stage, perhaps more so by the time your child enters grade 3. 2018-09-21 15:08:16

Saswati is in her early learning years. In case you would like to teach her shapes and colours, you could use things around you on a day to day basis and some more tricks. Here are a few 2018-09-21 15:11:25

You could teach her colours while you show her the vegetables and fruits, you could also get some visual puzzles for her and then from time to time make it a playful exercise to identify colours in your surroundings, when you both go out or are in a park or on your way to the nearby market. You could also get her a colourbook and introduce crayons to her and ask her to colour various shpaes. This way you would be able to introduce her to both the concepts together. 2018-09-21 15:13:39

Remember to be patient with her and with time, she'll learn both - shapes and colours really well. 2018-09-21 15:14:03

What's the right age for a child to be initiated into Abacus learning? I heard from a few friends that it almost wipes out the fear of maths in the child. Pls suggest.

Hi! Advait is 3+ now, and from an age perspective, these are the best years to learn language, patterns, and around now is when advait's cognitive development would start happening more rapidly till he turns 8 years. 2018-09-21 15:15:50

Abacus is a non-pen/paper way of learning mathematical concepts and is a great building block for various concepts which children learn later on. 2018-09-21 15:16:50

While, Advait could start even now, it would be better if he does so once he is 5/6 years, as most of his peer group in such sessions would be children of that age or older and the concepts would also be age appropriate. 2018-09-21 15:17:47

But in case you find him to be deeply interested in math and gifted than you could start next year with abacus at home and could even look at advait joining such classes outside home. 2018-09-21 15:18:49

On wiping out the fear of math bit- is advait fearful of math/numbers? 2018-09-21 15:19:17

In such a case, pls be patient with him as he'll pick things up soon. Be supportive, teach him with day-to-day examples from your surroundings and make it playful and activity oriented. 2018-09-21 15:21:25

Your champ (like the photo says) - is he liking it at kumon right now? if so, and he's enjoying it theh, that is a great reason to also explore math for him. 2018-09-21 15:23:21

If he's doing fine with math, and is curious and keen about learning more, than these classes can be helpful for him to get more exposure. That will help him understand and learn mathematical concepts without a pen/calculator - basically get friendly with math. 2018-09-21 15:25:25

and what is kumon maths as asked by meetu sharman will it be good for pranshi 2018-09-21 15:27:57

These puzzles could be visual first followed by numbers or a mix of both. For e.g. linking numbers to make a train. or arranging numbers by blocks. There are puzzles which are basic "fill in the banks" like 5-4 =____ and the same is supported by 5 balls and then 4 balls and followed by 1 remaining ball. 2018-09-21 15:29:24

ok...these activities r done by her on wveryday basis 2018-09-21 15:30:13

You will find many of these easily, the idea should be to expose pranshi to visually rich pattern puzzles first followed by number+visuals. it becomes better for a child's learning. 2018-09-21 15:30:24

Kumon is a way to learn mathematical concepts without pen/paper. It helps in building good associations but can have some drawbacks as well. One of them is that it overtly focuses no repetition and memorization, which is something I personally find as a down-side of Kumon. Having said that, they are improving on it making it more activity oriented. 2018-09-21 15:32:22

yes even i hv heard the same for it.... 2018-09-21 15:33:27

Pranshi could explore between Kumon and abacus, and I would advice to first go with abacus at home and then depending on her interest take it fwd to abacus activity classes. Continue with these math puzzles and there is now a younger version of sudoku as well - you may want to explore that for pranshi. 2018-09-21 15:33:52

great piece of advice....thanks a lot....how can abacus at home be introduced....r there any materials available in the market 2018-09-21 15:35:12

Most welcome. Yes, you could introduce abacus as well sudoku at home. You get abacus in different sizes available easily online. You could start with the basic version first at home with your child easily. 2018-09-21 15:36:12
