5 Ways To Get Your Kids to Love Math

As a parent, it’s hard to see them undergo all the stress of the exams, trying to memorize all these math formulas and methods just to pass another semester.

Well, it’s time to give yourself and your child a break with the best Singapore Math program in Manila and the world, for helping children understand Math better.

Like most children intimidated by math, they get confused by abstract concepts and hate math. Ever wondered if there was anything that could make math easier? Now there is a solution.

Seriously Addictive Mathematics or S.A.M is now finally on the local scene, aimed at helping children improve their Math. With their specially formulated S.A.M method, they use both classroom and worksheet experience to help improve their grades and understanding of Math.

Created by Singaporean Teacher Lau Chin Loong, a graduate of National Institute of Education in Singapore, Serously Addictive Mathamatics is the best Singapore Math program for children from 3 to 12 years old.

The program is carefully crafted in a step-up formula including 300,000 colorful worksheets with narrative instruction and relevant examples to foster confidence and independent learning.

S.A.M versus traditional Math

S.A.M certified trainers are personally trained by a Singaporean Franchise Director, to ensure that your child receives the most authentic and the best Singapore Math program; enjoyable and effective compared to traditional math.

Below are the top five reason why and how your kids will surely enjoy math through the S.A.M way:

1. It promotes independent learning, diligence, and discipline in a way that kids would be empowered enough to have a conceptual understanding and critical thinking in solving math problems.

2. Unlike traditional math that focuses of memorization and repetition formulas, S.A.M guides and provide the necessary tools your child needs to solve non-routine word problems, and to be able to apply to real-world problems.

3. In S.A.M kid are introduced to why they need to perform formulas like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division before they are actually taught how to do it. They get to explore first the concept of “carrying” in addition or “borrowing” in subtraction.

4. S.A.M way uses concrete, visual, and pictorial presentation of concepts, catering for kinetics, visual or audio learners, instead of immediately jumping to tackling abstract ideas using symbols and jargons that might intimidate and confuse a child.

5. Instead of using pure equation to solve word problems, S.A.M used the “bar-model” approach to allow learners to develop their visualization skills which they will later on need in solving complex mathematical problems.


Overall, S.A.M promotes analytical thinking instead of merely following formulas to solve arithmetic while having fun.

5 Tips to Get Your Kids Ready for School

5 Tips to Get Your Kids Ready for School

Getting your kids ready for school right after their summer break is important so that they can transition easily back into their school life.

Making sure your kids are ready to go back to school after their summer break is very important, as you need to slowly help them transition from the relaxed routine of summer, to the more rigid and structured routine that they have during the school year. Here are some useful tips:

1. Sleep early, wake up early

About a week before the start of school, you should already be preparing your kids to go back to school. One way would be to put them on a sleep schedule, especially if they tend to sleep late and wake up late during the summer. That way, they can get used to sleeping early, and waking up early to get ready for school.

It’s important to make sure your kids get enough sleep since even losing just an hour of sleep can lower your child’s ability to pay attention during class.

A lack of sleep can also make them feel very tired in school, and has a lot of negative effects on their health.

2. Get them back into the school routine

Aside from making sure your kid sleeps early and wakes up early, you can help them get back into the school routine by asking them to wake up, have breakfast, and get dressed at the same time every morning.

Establishing a routine should help them transition back into the mindset that they need when they go back to school.

3. Give them responsibilities

It’s also important to give your child responsibilities such as preparing the things that they’ll need for school, and making sure that they have everything they need.

Letting them do things on their own instead of doing it for them helps build your child’s sense of responsibility and helps them become more independent, which are both important skills that they need to learn as they’re growing up.

4. Make assignments a part of their routine

In order to make sure your kids always finish their homework, make it a part of their routine. Before school starts, you can keep their skills sharp by giving them simple “assignments” that they should do everyday. Make it fun and exciting, it doesn’t have to be anything difficult, as the important thing here is keeping your child’s mind active during the summer.

5. Get the family involved

To help your kids get ready for school, you can get the entire family involved. Preparing your kids to get back to school should be a team effort, and it’s easier if the entire family is on board.

You can ask your kids to make sure they wake up their siblings on time, and ask them to brush up on some of their subjects so that their minds are sharp when it’s time for them to go back to school.

5 Ways To Protect Your Child During The Rainy Season

5 Ways To Protect Your Child During The Rainy Season

The rainy season can offer a lot of fun activities, but it can also come with a lot of illnesses. Your little one can be prone to the common cold, cough, gastrointestinal infections and mosquito-borne diseases.

You don’t have to worry though, because there are several things you can do to protect your child during the rainy days:


Pack reliable water-resistant rain gear

Make sure your little one has a raincoat and/or umbrella. Since most kids don’t like the idea of bringing extra stuff to school, the best way to encourage them to carry protection against the rain is to get them fun umbrellas and colorful raincoats.


Boost your child’s immune system

Don’t wait for the rainy season to come before loading up on vitamins and minerals. Boost your child’s immune system by making sure he gets all the vitamins he needs. This will protect him from the common cough and cold. Vitamin C and Zinc are also great when it comes to warding off the cold virus. You can also double your child’s intake of vitamin-rich food like fruits and vegetables.


Give your kids clean drinking water

Making sure your little one drinks enough clean water helps fight and prevent many illnesses. Water cleanses your child’s body, flushing out toxins and the cold virus. When your child is well hydrated, he would be more capable of resisting the cold and flu.


Teach your kids proper hand-washing

Prevent germs from getting into your child’s body by teaching them how to wash their hands properly. Rainwater can cause ordinary things to become breeding ground for bacteria. It’s best if your child knows how important it is to wash their hands before eating and after touching dirty things.


Keep your surroundings clean

Throw away any empty containers around your house, especially those that would collect rainwater and become a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Stagnant water can invite parasites and bacteria and cause water-borne diseases that could affect your child.

Be extra vigilant during the rainy season to make sure your child is safe from any diseases.
