My 6th grade dd has asked me if I can help her this summer with spelling and math. My idea for spelling is Megawords, and for math is Mastering Essential Math Skills. What other ideas would you have?
She struggles in both areas. She is slightly dyslexic, but not terribly so. She has had phonics instruction at school and with me when I homeschooled her, but it just doesn't seem to stick in her brain.
She knows her math facts well, and is able to understand the big picture of math concepts, but when it gets down to the nitty-gritty details, then it's a struggle, such as explaining how she got her answer. She can often arrive at the correct answer, but when she has to show her work, that's where the problem comes in.
