For example, since I want to make sure my students get accustomed to reviewing the various math concepts and standards we have learned all year, I have them practice regularly. I want them to get to a point where they are so familiar with grade level math content, that solving these types of problems becomes automatic. However, caution must be taken into account when review is repeatedly covered in your classroom. You do not want your students to become bored or frustrated with the repetition. Another important point I keep in mind is that I never want this regular math review time to take up and hour of class time. I want it to be quick but effective. This is not instructional time, but time for the students to review material they have already learned.
However, get back to your child afterward to find out how far it has gone - math can be very frustrating, especially if the child lacks a strong foundation in the topic it is working on. The basic skill you require in order to successfully assist your child with its 3rd grade math worksheets problems is to be able to identify the difficulty. Does it lack the requisite skills that it should have already possessed for the work at hand? If that is the case then it is best that you take the child back to the missing link, so that your it learns what it is missing and move forward.
Is it his fault that he lacks confidence with word problems? Not entirely. Our actions, as educators, seem to imply a belief that solving word problems should come more naturally than simpler operations like arithmetic and algebra. Many parents and teachers feel justified in encouraging (i.e. forcing) a child to work hundreds or thousands of math worksheets, drill multiplication tables, long division but few encourage solving hundreds of story problems. One suspects that the relative ease of creating and checking ordinary math worksheets keeps the focus of math education on simple, atomic operations at the expense of more holistic story problems.
