Notice ...I am not a huge fan of those worms either. Notice it was Phi and POPPA who did that project! So glad to hear I am not alone in struggling with math. When we did multiplication last year it was so difficult. I used every trick I could find and what finally worked for her was picture association. For example "door times sign equals dirty sticks. (4X9=36) The website multiplication.com (http://www.multiplication.com/learn/learn-fact/9/x/9) and there was a short story that helps them remember. <br /><br />Good Luck!!

I loathe worms. That's still ...Oi, those worms. I loathe worms. That's still cool that you built a worm farm. I think it's awesome that Phi used almost all of her words in one sentence, and correctly too! Win! <br /><br />I understand what you're going through with math. With my eldest we would be going over what a stupid dime was for 2 freakin' years and it was like he'd never even heard the word before. He's a bit behind because he couldn't get simple addition and subtraction. We switched curriculum finally and he understood it this summer, just in time for us to start multiplication. Kill me now. I really really hope that we don't have to battle it like before. I'm hoping it was the curriculum switch that did the trick and not the fact that 3 years later it finally sunk in. Good luck with math this year! Here's hoping both our math years go much much better than last year :) Rochelle Barlowhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03197978285397167067noreply@blogger.com
