Use heart-shaped candy to teach the more simple mathematical arithmetic; like addition and subtraction. Provide children with pre-determined math problems that they can figure out using the sweets. Alternatively, make heart-shaped numeral cards that children can arrange on their desk to solve a math problem. You could give them a total to reach and they must use the cards to create the question.
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.
This issue of NOT practicing mistakes is extremely important. Parents shouldnt give worksheets as busy work and teachers should only use them if you are going to have a non-math teacher substitute. White boards with supervision are always a better way to practice skills. If you need some time to do chores, your child will get much more benefit by helping you with the chores. And maybe you can work in a little discussion of numbers or counting while you do chores together.
