# How your child learns the little one-off – 19 games

Every pupil has to learn the little one-off in primary school. The holidays are a wonderful opportunity to train the basic knowledge of mathematics, preferably with the help of parents. In arithmetic, the series of numbers must be repeated constantly and thus transferred to long-term memory. There is not that much time left in the classroom.

## Offer your child 19 different learning paths

Learning is successful when your child is actively involved. Of course, you can check the rows schematically over and over again, hoping that at some point they will be firmly anchored in your child’s brain. You can also rely on varied and active learning. The following exercises require not only schematic memorization, but the active help of your child.

## Your child should open up the ranks for himself

Before memorizing the difficult rows of one-offs, you should first write down all the results of a series. Really take time for these exercise parts and don’t do the work for your child. Ask: “What are the results of the 8-series? Write it down!” Insist that your child finds out and write down all the results themselves, the order doesn’t matter at first.

In a second step, your child should now put all the numbers found in the correct order. And now this order is consolidated with different exercises. Now the numbers are sorted.

## Learn one-off in a playful way

Just as with vocabulary learning, the children also need support when they are one-off. The more varied the methods for learning the calculation series, the more entertaining the merk process is. Also and especially for children with dyscalculia (calculation weakness) the one-off offers a good opportunity to score in math. In this article, I present a number of best practices that children and adolescents can use to learn the unique.

### 1. One-time triangle

Prepare cards for your child with triangles painted on them. It now selects a task from the one-off, for example 7 x 8 = 56. Now the three corners of the triangle are filled with it, the solution is at the top, the smaller digit on the left, the larger one on the right. Your child can now develop more tasks from this triangle. Gradually write down all the rows.

### 2. One-time songs

There are a number of beautiful songs that deal with the individual rows of one-offs. Thanks to the catchy rhythms and melodies, it is easy for children to become content. Let the songs run on the side or listen to them consciously together. Of course, one-off songs are also wonderful for longer car journeys, where everyone is allowed to sing along.

### 3. One-time staircase

If you have a staircase with ten steps (or more) in your apartment, house or garden, you can glue it with the one-off rows. Your child can then hop up or down the stairs and call out the corresponding number from the chosen row at each level.

### 4. Learn once with movement (trampoline)

The same principle works when jumping ropes, cycling or rocking. Each jump, every kick on the pedals or every change of swing direction is linked to a number from a selected one-off row and proclaimed loudly. This way, your child internalizes the one-time rows without having to calculate the results again each time.

Example: Your child takes a tennis ball and we catch it at the rhythm of a one-time row on a wall and catch it again. Throw and catch first 4 times, then 8 times, then 12 times, then 16 times, then 20 times, then 24 times, then 28 times, then 32 times, then 36 times and then 40 times. It counts out loud every time.

### 5. One-time royal duties

With the Royal Editions, it’s much easier for your child to calculate all the tasks of a one-off series. All it needs to do is know the core tasks, and the rest will then be revealed. You can see how this works in this video or read in more detail in this explanation.

### 6. One-time learning board

On a hundred board, the one-off rows can be beautifully represented. Give your child a task, which you want them to visualize with the string on the board. This method is suitable for beginners who need visual help to calculate each series.

### 7. One-time domino

Create dominoes (this is done with cardboard cards) for each one-time row. On the left side comes a result, for example 21. On the right side there is another task from the respective series, for example 5 x 7. Your child must create the right result and complete the entire series of sevens.

### 8. One-time memory

Get white cardboard squares (which are available in specialist shops, you can also cut them yourself) and label them one-sidedly with a calculation task or with a result. In the game, you can limit yourself to one-time single-entry series or mix several. The game is played like a normal memory, in which the cards are revealed alternately.

### 9. One-time bingo

In the case of bingo, you have to prepare in advance game material with 16 squares each, on which the solutions of the tasks are different and confused. You read the arithmetic tasks before and for a solution found on his sheet, ticks them. Whoever first filled a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row with crosses has won the round.

### 10. Practice Egg in with the Fidget Spinner

Do you still have the little rotary devil from the summer in the drawer? You can learn wonderfully with that. For example: Announce a row and then turn the spinner. Your child should now recite (or write down – see material tip) as long as the spinner is spinning.

### 11. Expect ingesth of pace with the one-off

Select a one-time row and ask for the invoices in a mess. If you answer correctly first, you can take a step forward. If the answer is wrong, he must take a step back. Whoever has come the furthest after all ten tasks (optionally more) has won the pace.

### 12. One-time poster

For a rainy or cold day, making a one-off poster is suitable. Your child can take a one-off series and paint a beautiful picture or all of them. There are no limits to his creativity. On the contrary, the more imaginatively it visualizes the one-off series, the better. And of course the poster belongs in the apartment or hung above the desk.

### 13. One-time chain (pearls, paper clips)

For children with arithmetic difficulties or beginners, it makes sense to experience the ranks of the one-off haptically. For example, you can use colored paper clips to represent one of the pure. In the row of four, it is very much the case: 4 red brackets, 4 yellow brackets, 4 blue brackets, 4 white brackets – and so on.

### 14. Learn once with LÜK or Logico

If you still have a lobe box at home and know the learning material, you can also practice one-offs with it. Simply solve the tasks from the booklet and place the appropriate plates on the fields in the labour costs. The system also works similarly with Logico from Finken Verlag.

### 15. Train one-time with computer games

Of course, there are also lots of small games on the internet or as an app with which your child can train the one-time one. These methods are suitable, for example, for on the go, have or for waiting times at the doctor.”

### 16. Learning once with the watch

On a one-time clock, the numbers are arranged from zero to nine in a circle. Nails are placed under the numbers. At the number zero, a thread or piece of wool is knotted on the nail or in the hole. When reciting a series of paints, your child wraps the thread around the respective results, with two-digit numbers only the one digit.

### 17. Once-in-a-person-angry-you-not

To do this, you need a man-worse-you-not playing field. In each second field, a calculation task is written from the one-time one. Each player gets four pieces of play, and is rolled alternately. Whoever lands on a task field must calculate and say the result aloud. If it is true, he is allowed to continue playing, is e sswrong, it is the next one’s turn. As with the “Human
don’t get annoyed” figures can be thrown out. In the case of a six, it is not allowed to
rolled, and also on the starting field next to your house you can get without a
special number of cubes. Whoever first has all four tiles in the house is the winner.

### 18. Inventing one-off history

Your child chooses a row and invents a suitable story.

For example: Once upon a time there was a little boy who had four goldfish. He exchanged them for eight balls of ice cream at a zoo. He exchanged the ice cream with a sausage seller for twelve sausages. He gave it to a woman and received sixteen euros for it. For this money he bought twenty balloons.

### 19. Donkey Bridge to the little one-off series of nine (The trick with the 1×9)

Your child puts all ten fingers on the table. Depending on the task, it bends off the corresponding finger of the first digit and writes down the digit in front of it. Then it counts the remaining fingers behind the bent and also notes this number. It already has the result.
Example: 8×9 – it bends off the eighth (8) finger, notes the 7 and counts the remaining fingers after the eighth, i.e. two (1). 8×9 = 72

#### One-time driving licence

If your child masters a one-off series, they will get a stamp on their driver’s license. It should be able to make the respective row forward, backward and also confusing error-free.

#### What is the best way for your child to learn the one-off?

Not every child can cope with every method. Just try one or the other and then decide if you want to stick to this learning technique. You can also combine multiple one-time methods. In summer, it is perhaps more suitable to play motion games, in winter to paint and craft with material. Not every child has to use all methods.

#### Repeat the series of numbers regularly

Even if your child masters the one-off, he or she has to practice the bills again and again during his school days. For head calculation, the one-off is indispensable. Incorporate the tasks into everyday life, repeat the bills regularly in each school year, and help your child improve their numeracy skills.
