Make mathematics fun for kindergarten kids

Today, many children feel that their math lessons are difficult. We need to cultivate their interest in mathematics right from their kindergarten years.

Teach math with real-world experiences.

When you take your child for a walk, teach them shapes with real-world examples. When you take your child outside for shopping, make them count things on shelves. For example: While at a grocery store, ask your kid to grab you 5 strawberries, 3 apples, and ask them to count them all together. This way, teaching can be done lively outside in the real world. So, the idea here is to make math as real as possible.

Maths with facts.

Make them love math by telling them some cool math facts. Facts about numbers, shapes, and anything that would make them love math. For example: What comes after a million, billion and trillion? A quadrillion, quintillion, sextillion, septillion, octillion, nonillion, decillion, and undecillion.

Do math talks.

Read, prepare yourself and create interesting math conversations with your kids. Whether in the playground or at home, once in a while do the math talk. For example: Ask them to think of a number, double it, add six, divide it by half, then ask them to subtract it with the number they originally thought in their mind. The answer is 3.

Math with food.

Kids love to eat their favorite foods. Once in a while, introduce a little bit of math along with their favorite food. For example, make them earn cookies with some simple additions and multiplications. If not math facts, then food can help you in making math fun for kindergarten.

Printable math games.

There are lots of math games, maths puzzles available online that you can print out. Color print them and make them learn math with a fun twist. They will be excited to learn addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Just a simple search on google can get you lots of free printable math games.

Lastly, avoid math phobia.

If you hated math when you were young, it doesn’t mean your child will also hate math. Never tell them that you hated math too. Never tell them math is complicated. It is very important that you avoid transferring your math phobia to your kid. Make them feel that math is easy and fun to learn.

Add tea bags in shoes to remove shoe odour

Unpleasant shoe odor is caused by the bacteria in your shoes. By killing those odor-producing bacteria you can easily eliminate the bad smell from your shoes.

To do just that, add a teabag in each shoe and leave it there for 1 to 2 hours. Tea bags effectively kill bacteria and thus eliminates the smell.

You can use any type of teabag. Black teabags are the most effective as they contain a high concentration of Tannin which is good at killing these odor-producing bacteria.

Once the odor is gone, wipe the inside of shoes, and let it air dry. Your shoes will be smelling as fresh as new.

Use white vinegar to remove smells and stains from your laundry

Try adding a 1/2 cup of white distilled vinegar along with detergent when you wash your clothes. Your clothes will look and smell like they are new.

Do you know that vinegar is also a natural fabric softener? Vinegar actively removes detergent particles that stick to the fabrics. Vinegar helps keeps your clothes retain their original color.

Note: Please remember to use the white distilled vinegar for this purpose.

During a fire, walk low to the ground to prevent smoke inhalation

Smoke inhalation could lead to unconsciousness. Everyone knows that hot air rises above. So, during a fire, bend down and run to safety.

If the smoke is too much, bend to your hands and knees, and crawl on four limbs. Cover your nose and mouth using a mask or a cloth while you crawl through the smoke.
