Question: Math help for kindergartener

My kindergartener seems to come home with most of her math worksheets not finished. When I ask her about it she just shrugs her shoulders. As it gets later in the year i am getting more worried that she is not getting it and will have a tough time in full time first grade. Any suggestions?

Kindergartners have limited attention span and may be the reason she doesn't finish. Perhaps when you see these unfinished worksheets you sit down with her over the weekend and see if she is "getting it" - if she is, then I wouldn't worry as her attention span will get longer as she gets older, however if you see she is having difficulties, then it would be appropriate for your to contact her teacher and discuss if she/he is concerned and they may could provide you with some guidance on how you can work with her at home to ensure she doesnt fall behind.

My kindergartener comes home with a lot of unfinished work too. Her teacher suggests that we pick 2 problems on each sheet and do them as homework. She tells all parents to do this and to write a note to her if we find that the child doesn't understand a concept. With class size being bigger this year it's hard for her to know if every child gets every conceptl. This is a good system of check and balances.
