Lol - I know. But I have tried teaching on some sort of "normal" type of teaching but he just couldn't learn that way. Out of 7 kids, none of them were able to learn the normal way. I learned that if I wanted to keep their interest in learning, I had better come up with a better way of teaching them quick. This way definitely keeps their interest.

Quoting kirbymom:Behind? By whose standards? Yours or the systems?

In our school, I do not teach to grade level. I teach to mental and physical ability-understanding. For example I have a seven year old who is learning algebra, knows the multiplication tables through twelve, but is just now getting comfortable with reading. He has learned how to tell analog time as well as digital time. He knows money and how to calculate it. He is all over the schooling map.
What I am poorly trying to point out is, you teach to what your child's understanding is no matter where that is.

wow thaats crazy lol

Don't worry mama. She's never behind. She's at her own pace. I don't believe in rushing to be on "grade level". That's what leads to frustrations. Grade levels were created to monitor classroom education. She's doing great as long as she is learning!
