OK, so no matter which grade your 04er is in, what are they learning as far as math? (Number recognition is math...shapes are math, they're learning math even if there aren't addition signs and stuff...) I just wanna know as a math teacher.

Courtney is working on addition facts by 2 and subtraction facts by 2, as well as reviewing doubles and 1s. At home we branch out a little beyond that.

They're a little bit ahead of Courtney's class, cuz they're mixing it up more...though Courtney has done all those, just regularly they don't. They do this timed thing though, Idk if that's why the regular is like it is.

We've been doing subtraction now since October I think. That or September. We did a lot of addition in Kindergarten, but just a month or two at the beginning of the year on it in First. He does timed math sheets also, subtraction and addition. He gets the hang of it OK, but I've had to get his teacher to show me the stupid touch points like 20 times. I always cheat and give him pennies or crowns to use at home on the ones he missed on his first go round on the sheet. I think the highest we've subtracted from is like 10. He just started a few weeks ago bringing home the sheets like these, they were a lot more boring, but he loves working through the problems on these now so he can use the color key at the top to color in the squares and make out the secret messages.

haha. Courtney loves doing math, she loves doing lots of academics, if only my high schoolers still had that love instead of writing things on their papers on the first day of semester 2 (today) like "I hate math"...oh joy.

I just don't understand telling your teacher that actually. I think it is totally stupid to be honest. You should want your teacher to like you, so you should not start out by saying you hate what they're doing...

My teachers liked me (well except one...). I just had the hardest time with it no matter how much I studied or did extra work. It wasn't until my senior year of high school that a teacher realized why I was having so many problems with it. I would mix things up in the writing out the problems and formulas. If it hadn't been for that teacher I'd have never passed the math section of the ACT, as it was the highest score I got in the math was a 19, which was better than the two failing ones I got before.

Yeah, but thinking it is hard, or thinking you aren't good at it is totally different than just straight out saying "I hate math." I don't think hate is a word that should be used lightly like that. I think it is disrespectful to the teacher to put that on your paper. I told the kids who put that on their papers that it was not going to be an OK attitude. I had one class I really really really really didn't like, and I let everyone know about it when we weren't in class, but I bought into the whole thing in front of the teacher, it's just too rude not to.
