*Tears of joy* I finally found a way to make Math fun!
My ds's been struggling with math lately. While last year math was his favorite subject, this year he just doesn't want to do it. I bring out the work sheet and he just stares at it, scribbles, takes FOREVER to do one problem, I was about to pull my hair out. Then I had an idea. Whiteboard!
I broke out the white board and wrote one problem at a time. It was better. But a miracle happened when ds asked to write a problem for me. It was a ridiculously long number subtracted by another ridiculously long number,lol. Took me a minute but I got it. Then I'm like, "Oh yeah?" "I got a hard one for you!" I wrote a double digit carrying problem. I breifly went over what to do and he got it! Then it was his turn.
We did this for about 20 min, (I added some borrowing too) when I called it quits to cries of, "No, I want to do more!"
Best math ever!
