sometimes reviewing it for a while will help bring it back, usually at the beginnings of books they do reviews, what math book are you using?

if it was my child i'd give her a couple weeks in the second grade book, and see how she does, if still not getting it, try the first grade one as review, and yu can always keep doing the second grade one!

This is what I would do too.

I'm using Scott foresman mathematics. I have the teacher book along with the student and the test books. I found a review test and let her do 100 problems. She missed twelve and the ones she missed was because she added when she should have subtracted or subbed when she should have added. But I really happy with the results of that. She will do 100 more today that a with a little bit bigger numbers then tomorrow with some more bigger numbers. After the last part I think I will know where she stands hopefully.

Thank you so much.

E-bay. I got our language arts, science, social studies, math books all in one lot. It also came with the teacher books and test books. I had to order the science workbook though from a different person and I'm also ordering the workbook for language arts but that is through the company. It is just cheaper that way. Plus I'm a little tired of hand writing the reteach and pratice lessons onto paper lol. But thats how we are doing it until the workbook gets here. Also the same with social studies. I like the typical classroom teaching (like how I was taught in p.s) v.s. how they do it now. My step kids have laptops and barely ever write a word. I just dont like it. Anyways I am so happy that it is looking better.

This is the reason that many math books have 40 lessons of review at the beginning of the book. It isn't uncommon for kids to forget.

Does she seem to understand the meaning behind the numbers? Can she count and sort items into groups, place items into patterns? Have you used any counters (bears, buttons, etc.) to demonstrate adding and subtracting?

I really liked the 2nd grade R&S (Rod & Staff, a Mennonite publisher but the math is not really that religious) for teaching the math addition and subtraction facts. It is pretty gentle, mastery, and spends a lot of time with the facts so they are cemented in the child's memory.

We use CLE now (like it better for many reasons), but it would be too advanced, I think, for your student. It can be quite challenging. We used R&S 1 and 2 then switched, and I don't regret that at all. It was perfect for my dd.

My dd is this way every Monday! Seriously. It's like, math falls out of her head if she doesn't do it every day.
