Learning math is no joke. However, help with 2nd grade math is easy to find. No matter what learning style your child prefers, 2nd grade math games are an excellent way to help them study. Let’s take a look at the
and see why.

What are the learning styles?

Every person has a preferred way to learn. You, your child, everyone. Some people are good at retaining written information and do just fine with workbooks and notes. Others like to jump in and do better with hands-on learning. There is no right or wrong learning type; there are only preferences. (You aren’t wrong for liking the color blue even though Suzie next door prefers yellow, right?)

Getting the right help with 2nd grade math may be easier if you know your child’s learning style. Having this information will help you develop the most effective studying techniques and know what to include in your 2nd grade math games. Making a few changes may even help your child—imagine this—enjoy learning math.

The first of the seven learning styles is visual (also called spatial). This means that a student prefers pictures and images when learning a new concept. Up to 70% of people are visual learners. This is why online games are such good learning options.

Next, are aural, or auditory-musical, learners. These students find sound and music most effective for learning. Games that involve sounds and songs work best for them.

Learning Styles Continued

After that are the verbal, or linguistic, learners. They prefer learning through words and language, both spoken and written. Crossword puzzles and discussions about what they have heard/read can help them understand the material better.

Physical (also called kinesthetic) learners are the hands-on students. They learn best with their sense of touch.

Logical (or mathematical) learners are most comfortable with systems, reasoning, and logic. Puzzles and brain teasers work well for these children.

Social learners, also called interpersonal learners, find that working with other people is the most effective for them. Let them talk about it and work in groups!

Finally, solitary (intrapersonal) learners get the most out of studying alone. Workbooks are great for solitary learners!

Starting with your child’s learning style is an excellent way to find help with 2nd grade math. With this knowledge, you can create 2nd grade math games tailored to your child’s needs. The most productive learning comes from the most personalized studying!

If you don’t know your child’s learning style, have them take a
to get an idea.

Incorporating Learning Styles into Math Games

Whatever your child’s learning style, there are ways to include them. The most important idea is to work with the style, not against it. For example, if your child is a solitary learner, avoid pressuring them to join a study group. Conversely, if they are a social learner, encourage your child to pair up with study partners for help with 2nd grade math.

Creating 2nd grade math games are a terrific way to study. They are flexible, personalized, and fun. When creating a math learning game, begin with your child’s learning style.

Visual and Auditory Learners

For visual learners, flashcards are a perfect example. Picture games and memory games are also ideal. Try a matching game with sets of problems that your child must match up with the solution. These can be cards, images, or on any medium you see fit.

Aural learners are partial to sounds. They must hear a concept to understand it well. For these learners, have them read word problems aloud. Creating songs or rhymes for them to repeat to themselves is an excellent study method for these learners. These will help them remember problem-solving methods. Ask them to talk through the problem they are working on.

Verbal learners may benefit from talking through a problem with you. Ask them to read the questions aloud. Explaining the concept to them, rather than having them simply read through it, will be helpful to them. Encourage that they ask questions. Focus on verbal explanation rather than visual explanation.

Other Types of Learners

I’ve found that physical learners do very well with games they can hold and touch. Have them count on their fingers. Try using the TouchPoint system. Create a counting game with Lego bricks, blocks, coins, or other objects that they can move and hold themselves.

If your child is a logical learner, they are probably pretty comfortable with math concepts. Math is strategic and systematic by nature. However, a little boost can never hurt. Creating consistent solutions and helping them recognize patterns in math may be very helpful. Playing strategic math games with them is a great way to help them study. Try to help them dig into the “how” and “why” math concepts work. This way, they will be able to more easily recognize patterns and find solutions.

Social learners will benefit most from games with other students. Look into study groups held in your child’s school. Bring some other student’s over for a game of flashcards. Have them quiz one another. Ask them to take turns playing the part of a teacher quizzing the students.

Conversely, solitary learners prefer studying alone. Your child may only ask you for help with things they cannot figure out on their own. Allowing for single-player games and a quiet space will be very beneficial for your child.
