If the materials do not specifically indicate "brain-based," determine if they are at least "brain-friendly." This would mean that you are looking for lots of color, material interesting to the child, many varied activities-especially involving movement, and using several of the senses. I saw one company whose worksheets included the instruction to "say the number out loud as you..." This is very good! Speaking out loud is very important for learning to occur. Ideally, all worksheets should include this instruction. If you can not find any that do, then you need to add that instruction yourself.
Many people think that showing a student once how to correct the mistake and having them practice that one problem is sufficient. WRONG! It will take having the student do hundreds of similar problems correctly with constant supervision to replace the incorrect method in the brain. Many freshmen enter Algebra with learned multiplication mistakes-the most common of which is 7 x 8 = 54. (I will trust that you know the correct answer is 56.) These mistakes that students bring into Algebra have been practiced so many times by the time the students arrive in high school, that the students often do not even believe they made any mistakes. And the Algebra teacher does not have the time it takes to fix these errors.
