With the new school year starting soon, many parents will be concerned about school readiness and looking for ways to help their children prepare for big school.
Third grade can be particularly challenging when it comes to math, as this is the year that students are learning about fractions, measuring and weighing objects, graphing and counting money. Most importantly, third graders should be comfortable with the basics of math such as adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. If your child isn't comfortable with these basic components, it's almost inevitable that he or she will struggle with future math lessons.

Modeling merely means exposing young children to the types of behaviors and habits we want them to learn. Many parents and homeschooling educators employ this kind of instruction naturally, without giving it much thought.
