Learning at Home with KA: Fact Families and Vowel Length

Oct. 4, 2021

Parents understand how important early childhood education is, but kids might not be too keen on the idea of reading and solving problems over and over again.

However, there are ways to make learning more enjoyable for them, while still ensuring that they are getting quality education. This educative app is perfectly crafted to cater to the needs of grades 1 – 2 students.

Normally, children at this stage of their learning face comprehension problems compounded by their inability to pay attention for an extended period of time. The learning exercises in these worksheets are designed to hold their attention, with colorful prints and easy to complete tasks.

The trick to helping children learn mathematics at this stage is to use relatable material such as educational apps and games. Also, children need to practice their math solving skills with different exercises; so that they can see how math problems can come in different forms. They will also learn new mathematics vocabulary and practice solving the problems as they work through the repetitive exercises.


The Fact Family topic might seem confusing to younger children at first; especially when they encounter some of the problems with larger numbers. Once they learn to understand and identify numbers, they will gain the confidence to solve more simple fact family math. Parents can guide their young kids through the family haunted house worksheets and encourage them to complete the math exercises.

Teaching kids phonetic sounds is important if you wish to get their early childhood education right. Your children will progress from speaking short sentences into pronouncing words properly, learning to write and identify words, and finally reading words in books. Understanding phonetic sounds will help make pronouncing and reading words easier for them. Words that are spelled alike and sound similar will no longer pose a problem once your child learns how to distinguish between short and long sounds, and how they might appear in words.

Our short vowel detective worksheet is ideal for young children getting introduced to phonetics. The encouragements and familiar pictures in the exercises will keep them interested in learning more about different words that contain short and long vowels. To make their learning easier, they can pronounce the words aloud as they find the right ones which contain the given vowel sounds. Help them pronounce the words that might be difficult and gently encourage them as they complete the tasks.
