Have you noticed how some kids take just a second to understand a math concept yet takes forever to finish reading a short story? Or perhaps, how one child can easily tally scores in a baseball game yet is having difficulty with his drills in addition? You see, children have different “smarts” – some are Math Smart, Word Smart, Music Smart, Body Smart, etc. The best thing you can do is identify a child’s “smarts” as early as possible and use it to develop other areas. For one, a child who loves music and who is even interested in using that dbx 223xs at guitar center would be more receptive in learning math through music. He’ll more likely learn his multiplication table through singsong than by reciting it like a soldier on command.
