7 Secrets to Engage Online Learning for Students With ADHD; Tip #2
Continuing our tips from ADDitude Magazine on strategies to help children with ADHD get started and stay motivated to finish their school work, today we focus on Tip #2: Add motivators to math: moving & small treats matter.

2. Play "War" with a deck of cards to practice multiplication. Just use the 1-10 (numbered) cards and have each player draw two cards. Multiply the cards for each player and the person with the greatest product wins!
3. Draw a hopscotch court with chalk and have your student jump to the correct answer as you call out problems.
4. Teach fractions while baking or cooking!
