Developing an aptitude for performing mathematical operations and instituting algebraic thinking is a task that gets increasingly challenging as a student advances from kindergarten to fifth grade. The introduction of addition and subtraction requires conceptualizing the respective composition and breakdown of quantities. These quantities increase and the links to multiplication and division are created in second grade. By fourth grade, there is an awareness of patterns and familiarity with factors. VocabularySpellingCity can guide a student through this progressive transition with elementary online math games and activities. Read More
