The Power of Math at Bedtime
Download the MP3
Can you guess what math and going to bed have to do with each other?
According to some researchers, including some math during bedtime stories can vastly increase a child’s math skills.
Their research claims that kids can improve math achievement measurably if mom and dad include an app called Bedtime Math.
By combining images and math in the stories, the child learns to solve math equations in an enjoyable way.
This improvement is apparently possible even if the app is only used once a week.
It’s easy to be uncertain about anything that is specifically endorsed, but since this app is free, there’s nothing to lose in giving it a try.
Another benefit will be for parents that are apprehensive about helping their kids with their math homework. Your child can sense how you’re feeling, which can impact their learning.
The app isn’t just for very young kids, so if you’re looking for a fun way to help a child under the age of 10 to improve their math skills, give the Bedtime Math a try: http://bedtimemath.org/bedtimemath-app
