Re: Welcome to School Age Kids
As the custodial grandparent of a six year old boy and as a retired teacher, if you feel your child is not being challenged in math do a little extra work on your own. Being ahead of the class never hurts. If the child feels it is too easy they will stop attempting to do their best and will just do what is required to get by. I find myself sometimes silently agreeing with my grandson, "If I can do it right after 2 or 3 problems, why do a page full?" Sometimes I feel teachers attempt to teach on the level of their lowest achiever, not challenge their best!
