You won the page 2 contest.

 

But I'm getting page 2 post 2. Is that special somehow?

Post 51 is always on page 2. For some reason I thought it was post 50. I was so proud.  :mellow:

Well, that's probably because you chose the wrong math curriculum. Shall we discuss spiral vs. mastery now?

You could all have some, but you would have to come dressed to match the cupcakes, they are green and white. No blue allowed at my party, even if I like the color, it would not be matchy matchy enough.

Cupcakes are for slacker moms who won't take the time to master cake baking. They just go to the store, pick up that boxed stuff full of chemicals, write a check slooooowly at the register, and abandon their carts in the middle of the parking lot. Hmph.

Perhaps we will pursue the goldfish method.  And here we have a castle.  Now what's over here?  Ah, that's nice, too.  What's back here?  Oh, look, a castle!  And over here is nice.  Ooo, what's back here -- a castle!  And over here....

 

Some days it feels like it, at least.

We LOVE the goldfish method!!  You should try it. The rambling zig-zag didn't appeal to my son. Although it was all-over-the-place enough for him, it wasn't fast enough. The "strolling through the meadow with my head stuck in a tree trunk" didn't work either. We just didn't get anywhere. Sigh.So we moved on and haven't looked back.

 

I'm of absolutely no help on the other threads today, so I'm posting here.  I feel like I belong.
