I'm so proud of my kids and incredibly happy with Teaching Textbooks!
V's strength is math. Other than word problems, he did well in math. He continues to excel and is on par with where we enrolled him in school.
W was making progress, but struggling with math concepts. He was probably around a year behind in math in 3rd grade last year.
E was still struggling with concepts like 1+1 and 2+1 and 9-9 last year. It just wasn't clicking.
M also struggles with 9-1 or 9-9 and fact families. If 3+4 = 7 then 4+3=? *blank stare*
Wy is as smart as a little tack and doing multiplication already…
As we near the end of the school year here is where my kids stand with their math.
D has completed 4th grade math and is nearly halfway through 5th grade math. W and V are finishing up 4th grade math this week. Wy is halfway through 3rd grade math (he's in 2nd grade).
In the last few weeks, Eli has started working on 3rd grade math and is making good progress.
Consider that W was a year behind in math, D was nearly 3 years behind, E was 2 years behind, and that the school wanted to retain Wy in 1st grade, you can see how great they are doing!
M has just started trying the first few lessons on TT3. I'm not sure if she's ready for it yet, but she's close. Right now she's working on a Math Comic Book from Dyslexia Games. She and E like to use the abacus to help them visualize the problems. M's weakness is math. She just doesn't get the concepts, but she is definitely trying and excited to be able to work on the computer like the other kids for her math.
We are also using Times Tales for the kids to work on multiplication facts. Slowly but surely they are getting them :) If we have to watch the videos all summer for the kids to learn their multiplication facts and have them down for next school year then we will!
