Homeschooling Moms
DD hates math. Every day this week it has turned into a meltdown. I know it's not too hard, and it's not all too easy though some is more of a review for her, but I need to see what she knows so I only have her do a couple problems if its review. Then she makes obvious mistakes and she has a tantrum if I try to explain why something isn't right. Today it only took her 10 min to do 9 problems but 8 of them were wrong because of simple mistakes or not reading directions. She also hasn't memorized her multiplication facts (6s, 7s and 8s...the others she knows for the most part but I wouldn't say fluently).
So, can I schedule real math like m/w/f and just do a math game on t/th? Any other ideas? I just don't want to fight every day but I also think she really needs to learn this stuff.

There are tons of math games where the players really do not realize they are using math. I would also perhap sub a lesson for a cooking lesson instead. I wonder if a tutoring center could do independent testing to just see if she is trying to rebel against you in this subject or really does not understand the concepts.

That's the best part about it :) I love being able to change things up whenever the mood strikes. It keeps learning fun for both of us.

You don't HAVE to do anything when it comes to homeschooling. I agree with math games. If something doesn't work try another approach. Learning is fun.
