When I say the ‘mm’ in ‘math’ my 10 year old begins his frown and by the time I hit the ‘th’ his head is low and his his lip is pouting so much it’s practically touching his neck. He hates math. Although very good at it. So good that if I was not the one who gave birth to him, I would wonder if he was mine at all.
I sucked at math. I still suck at it even with the calculator. I also do not trust my math and redo every question 3 times just to make sure that I get the same answer every time. But my son is not this way. He always gets it right every time. He is simply one of those people who understands the simple logic of math. None the less he hates it.
when we home learn our children?
My children are enrolled in a school with a home learners program that has an optional 2 day a week program. With that they get the same notices as all the kids at the school, including the Pro D notices. My children see and read these notices before I get a glimpse at them. With a ‘YAY Pro D Friday’ they dance around crazy. The thing is they do not go to the school in Fridays; they go on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
