In my opinion, I think these Math equations are way too difficult for 5 and 6-year old pre-schoolers :
Take a look at the boxes on the questions. They are everywhere…. some in front and some behind, first set and second set. I think even some adults would need some time to ponder how to solve the equations.
Alycia didn’t understand the concept and I had a very tough time explaining the rules to her and making her remember them. She still doesn’t know how to do the questions on her own…. but has no problem with straight forward additions and deductions.
I then set some questions for her to practise to get a hang of it but had to guide her to solve them.
Check out Baby C under the table LOL! That’s my typical afternoon – coaching the 2 older brats in their homework while Baby C would be crawling and walking everywhere. Sometimes baby would make me search frantically for her and then I would find her happily picking up dirt from the floor, under the table … and almost putting them into her mouth!
