Your child should already have their basic addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts memorized. Your child should be working on memorizing  division facts through 0-12.  A child is more successful when solving word problems and reasoning tasks when their mental math ability is strong.

Be sure to have your child read for at least 30 minutes each day. As I tell the students, if you want to be a better reader you must READ! There is no secret formula.
This is a great resource for books:
