I just talked to my niece and she's dreading the end of the school year I asked if she liked school that much and she said no! Turns out she has a big speed math test coming up in a month and she has to answer 40 questions in a minuet. Her teacher already told them if they don't finish the test they get a C in math. how that happens when she's been doing work all year I have no idea. Even if they get 5 minuets that's a lot of pressure on a kid. It has both adding and subtracting up to 20 on it. She's decided she's stupid because she doesn't know the facts that fast yet BUT she knows the facts.

Every day I see my sister deal with the school system I know I deal with less stress because I teach him.

I so wanted to hug her and convince her she's smart! I told her I'd bring her something this summer to help with math because she already feels doomed for 3rd. It's JUST math and she does know it! Self-esteem should not be compromised to push kids. learning suffers when self esteem is low.

UGH! I hated those timed things.
