I have been trying for nearly an hour to get DS to understand place value with numbers.
hundreds
Tens
Ones

He does fine watching the video on time4learning he aced his quiz with some rewording help from me.
But he just lost it. He can't remember anything. I showed him a chart we did two worksheets and he still isn't getting it!! I am getting so frustrated with it!

Help! How did you cover the topic? What worked best for your kids?

Sometimes you have to take a step back. But you might want to watch educationunboxed.com they have some wonderful video's that teach mom, how to get math concepts across. My kids even watch the videos.

You aren't crazy. CM has lost a few of my replies lately. Especially when I post from my phone.

I just cancelled that program...we did OK with it and I still like it, but my DD seemed to forget the concepts REALLY fast. We are going back to using textbooks and games.

My personal thought is that it is overstimulating. Like your son, she could pass the tests, but could NOT repeat much of the work later.
