Without being openly sympathetic, inform the child that you understand its frustration. Do not say, Ah, I also don’t like math! It is, however, very positive to say, math was initially difficult for me, but I pressed on and got the hang of it.
Another important point I keep in mind is that I never want this regular math review time to take up and hour of class time. I want it to be quick but effective. This is not instructional time, but time for the students to review material they have already learned.
From a teacher’s perspective our competition is tough. Passing out a handout of 30 problems that are all in a format of 534×25= is not as stimulating in the students’ eyes as playing games such as Grand Theft Auto and Resident Evil.
