We counted things as well. Sometimes books help, about numbers. Games etc..

Exactly, I was showing my dd long division and she kept saying they don't do it like that.

They have to do it their way. I have to say I hate it!

I don't like it either. No instruction comes home and dd can't explain it to me. I'm just glad she's pretty good in math so it's not too bad yet.

At the younger ages candy is ALWAYS fun to count. :)  My son has a math bingo game for addition/subtraction that is pretty cool too.

My daughter is 25 but when she was in grade school she was an A student and I was lucky and never had to help her with her homework.
