Find the Focus Zone

Dedicate a quiet, well-lit space free from distractions. This could be a desk in their room or a designated corner of the living room.

Gather the Gear

Have all the necessary supplies like pencils, erasers, a sharpener, and maybe even some fun maths manipulatives (counters, blocks, etc.) readily available.

Embrace Technology

If your child learns best visually, have a computer or tablet handy to access the Ninja Maths resources.

Short Bursts of Learning

Keep sessions short and engaging. Aim for 15-30 minutes of focused Ninja Maths practice depending on your child’s age and attention span.

Start with the Familiar

Begin with concepts your child is already comfortable with. This builds confidence and makes learning new things less daunting.

Let Games Lead the Way

Ninja Maths offers a variety of learning through activities. Let your child take the lead and choose what interests them.

Join the Fun

Participate alongside your child! Work on problems together, explain concepts in your own words, or even have a friendly maths competition.

Celebrating the Ninja Spirit

Acknowledge the Effort

Praise your child’s dedication and focus, not just getting the right answer.

Reward Progress

Use the Ninja Maths reward system! Celebrate earning virtual stickers and completing worksheets with a high five or a small treat.

Track the Wins

Keep a record of your child’s accomplishments, whether it’s mastering a new concept or completing a challenging worksheet. This builds a sense of pride and motivates them to keep learning.

Focus on the Journey

Learning is a process, not a destination. Encourage your child to embrace challenges and view mistakes as opportunities to learn and grow.

Beyond Ninja Maths

Connect Maths to the Real World

Help your child see how maths is used in everyday life. Cook a recipe together, calculate grocery costs, or measure ingredients for a science experiment.

Make Learning Fun Everywhere

Play maths games on car rides, incorporate counting and sorting into everyday activities, or challenge your child with age-appropriate maths riddles.

Positive Reinforcement is Key

Maintain a positive and encouraging attitude towards maths. Avoid phrases like “I was never good at maths” and focus on the joy of discovery and problem-solving.

Remember, you are your child’s biggest cheerleader! By creating a fun and supportive learning environment with the help of Ninja Maths resources, you can empower your child to develop a positive relationship with maths and become a confident and successful learner.
