Category Description for SnapWords Math Vocabulary:

Looking for a fun, effective way to help your child understand their pesky math vocabulary? Understanding even and odd numbers, area, prime numbers, fractions, mixed numbers, and geometry terms can be hard for some students to grasp. If that describes your learner, check out these unique math vocabulary cards. Cards are 2 sided, with the word and a visual “word picture” illustration on one side and the definition, a reinforcing motion or movement on the back to reinforce the word. Sound complicated? Honestly, it is pretty sweet. Here’s an example: the word remainder shows a simple math problem in number and picture on the front, and on the back the motion relates to the example from the front of the card; “hold up all five fingers and split them, leaving your thumb sticking out alone.” There is also scripted language to say to teach the word and the definition on the back of the card. SnapWords Math Vocabulary Cards can be used with any math program. Three sets are available, with vocabulary words in increasing difficulty. Each set offers 63 full-color, laminated cards that measure 5.5” x 4.25”.

Category Description for Right-Brained Math (Child1st):

I think as parent-teachers, we recognize that not everyone "gets math." Whether the struggle lies in the memorization of facts or inability to analyze the data, many children (and adults!) exert great effort with little result. Could it be that they learn differently? Much research conducted in the past several years has analyzed the differences in right and left-brain learners. Many of the popular math curricula options today are geared towards the left-brain learner- those who thrive through sequential, detailed, and instruction. However, what happens to our children who learn differently? Children who see the whole picture rather than bite-size pieces; and respond to color, patterns, or pictures? Entirely capable of learning, children who are right brain learners often fall through the cracks or receive unwarranted labels

Right-Brained Math meets the needs of the visual spatial learner, right brain learner, or other children who struggle to understand the typical left- brain focused math programs. While each book in the series is a stand-alone resource, there is great value in reviewing books to ensure children have a solid foundation.

First in the series, Addition and Subtraction Volume 1 begins with background information to help you understand the right brain learner. As a left-brain learner, I found this to be one of the most valuable aspects of the series. I experienced many "AHA!" moments as I read the information, which greatly enhanced my understanding of the right brained learners in my family. The author provides background understanding of teaching children of various ages from preschool through fourth grade before expanding on principles for teaching the right-brain learner. Topics in this book include learning numbers, understanding the meaning of numbers, transitioning from visual to symbolic and mastering computation to 10. Loosely scripted, each topical area includes goals, manipulative lists, activity/game instructions, and reproducible activity pages. Answer Keys and Classroom Records are included. Suggested hands-on manipulatives utilize commonly found items.

This pioneering teaching resource would make an excellent companion to the Life of Fred elementary series or mastery-based instruction for struggling math students. Dedicated teaching time is necessary for success and may take 30-45 minutes per day depending on your student. Reproducible for instructional use in a single classroom or homeschool.

Numerous supplemental resources are available including color-coded charts, math games and teaching cards. While these are designed to support the Right-Brained Math books, they may be helpful to children using other programs. See individual descriptions for more details. ~Deanne
