Fearfully and Wonderfully Made: The Role of Maturity in Math

Although we know each child is created by God to be unique, it can be challenging when a child doesn’t learn at the “typical”? pace. We may try to fit children into scholastic molds they simply are not ready to fill. Just as children learn to walk and talk at different ages, so also children mature to the point of understanding key mathematical concepts at different ages. Author and educator Carlita Boyles provides insights into what to do when your child is not performing at expected grade level in math or quickly forgets math concepts you have taught. Moreover, her refreshing approach to math instruction will help you teach more effectively, resulting in less frustration for you and your children. Carlita’s ideas and friendly encouragement have helped parents throughout the country find more joy in helping each child learn with greater success and less stress. Join her in this workshop which is filled with practical tips and Scriptural support to help you teach math with confidence.
