Understanding your child’s academic growth through the MAP assessment. Students will take Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) reading and math assessments from Jan. 11-27, and MAP results will help you and your child’s teachers understand your child’s academic growth so far this year. The results also help your child’s school team provide the support your child needs to be successful.
You can help your child prepare for the math portion of the test by:
- Spending time with kids on simple board games, puzzles, and activities that encourage using math skills. Even everyday activities such as playing with toys in a sandbox or in a tub at bath time can teach children math concepts such as weight, density, and volume.
- Encouraging your child to solve problems. Provide assistance, but let them figure it out themselves. Problem solving is a lifetime skill.
- Head to the kitchen! It is filled with tasty opportunities to teach fractional measurements, such as doubling and dividing cookie recipes.
- Point out ways that people use math every day to pay bills, make change, and tip at restaurants. Involve older children in projects that incorporate geometric and algebraic concepts such as planting a garden, building a bookshelf, or figuring out how long it will take to drive your family to a destination.
- Read the magazines or newspapers together. Children can learn to read and interpret charts and graphs found in daily newspapers. Collecting and analyzing data will help your child draw conclusions of numerical information.
