Subject: Re: How I can to learn my son in his first year of school?

First years of math could be difficult for some.  My suggestion is
expose your kids to numbers.  Let them see you count when you are in
the grocery,etc.  Let them hear you, too.  Let them look at your
thinking process, etc.

Make counting fun.  Have them sort out cereal fruit loops by colors
and count.  Which has more or less.  Then introduce addition by having
a circle form by yarn or just draw a circle.  Make up a story, like
there two little dogs in the yard, then two more came in the yard. 
How many are there now?  Same idea is used in subtration children need
to see, and work hands-on so they could understand.  You will
demonstrate several times because some just don't get the idea.
