The #1 reason primary school students are falling behind in maths

Did you know teaching maths at home could do more harm than good?

This could be why some students fall behind in primary school, even though their well-meaning parents spend hours teaching them at home.

We often hear kids saying, “But school doesn’t teach like that…” 

Or frustrated parents complaining to us, “I don’t know why my child doesn’t understand what I say…

You see, parents who teach at home often approach a topic differently from schools.

A simple example would be counting to 10. Some parents assume it’s all about reciting the numbers 1 through 10.

But it’s a different story in schools.

“Counting to 10” is more about assigning each number to a pile of objects, and it’s a skill that goes beyond recalling numbers in sequence.

In other words…

What you teach at home might not be what the school requires!

It doesn’t matter whether your child is in lower primary or upper primary too.

Regardless of the topic, you could be using words your child doesn’t understand, using methods that are too complex, or worse, teaching the wrong concept in the first place.

That’s why many parents refer to the official MOE syllabus as a teaching guide. 

But unless you have all the time in the world, it’s going to be tough reading through the thick 30+ pages worth of content.

Smart and savvy parents look for alternatives like KooBits instead.
