My son just brought home his STAR Math test that they just took on the 14th. He went down from where he tested at in the beginning of the school year. We have been working with him after school but he just has a really hard time with math. He seems to do fine on his daily work but is testing low. They held him back last year due to the fact that his math test was low. They know that he has trouble with math but have him going to no one for extra help. I am going to go in and talk with his teacher and i will have him doing some math type homework over christmas break. I am going to as his teacher if there is anyone at the school that he can go to during the day for extra math assistance. I feel like we are starting to repeat what happened in his second grade class last year. Unfortuanately he has the same teacher that he had last year due to our school only has one teacher per elementary class. Does anyone have any other suggestions. I don't want to have to do Sylvan if we don't have to. Just due to the cost of that program.Answer Question

What exactly is he struggling with? I know math, but specifically- adding and subtracting, timed test, problem solving? I can try to give you some pointers- I teach 1st grade...

Some schools have tutors for free. Just inquire, and see what other solutions they can come up with to help your child.
