We all know to read to our children at night – but what about math? Here’s a fun, easy way to add a little math to your family’s routine – at dinner time, bath time or anytime!
Bedtime Math is a nonprofit based in Summit, NJ. They serve up nightly math problems for kids aged 3-9 on their website, email and free app. They start with a fun fact or cool story that has a quick math problem geared to several age levels. There are no log-ins, no drilling, no scores – it is all about helping kids have fun with numbers and math. And it takes just five minutes a day!
A new study from the University of Chicago shows that when families do Bedtime Math together just a few times a week, kids’ math skills improve – and if you’re anxious about math yourself, your child stands to gain even more.
Check out their website today, and join nearly 200,000 families who are already having fun with numbers thanks to Bedtime Math! Visit Bedtime Math at www.bedtimemath.org.
