I know it's not easy to accelerate, but I'm having a math crisis. As soon as I got my oldest in a good place with his math, the tears started with my twins. They did 3 years of Montessori so I'm thinking they might like a more hands on approach.
They are at least MG, and liked math ok last year, we did a combo of miquon and singapore. Miquon just got too frustrating for me to figure out, so I dropped it. Maybe I should give it another chance....
My DD is doing singapore this year and she's just not engaged. I haven't really been teaching her much because we are taking things slow since she's in vision therapy and the exercises take a lot out of her. Maybe we should just play games? She just says she doesn't like it, it's boring. (It's not too easy, she needs help with a lot of stuff. We don't do a lot of problems either, because of the vision stuff.)
My DS is a lot quicker with math, so I was planning on accelerating him through MM to get him to BA 3. (I don't want to start BA 2 because he will definitely outpace the books.) He hates MM. I don't love it myself, but we own it so I was planning on sucking it up and getting through it.
They are not accelerated in math at this point, because we have been jumping around so much and I haven't gotten in a groove. I think they cold accelerate but like I said, we can't even land on a curriculum we like.
I guess I just want something fun and engaging and was hoping I could throw money at the problem.
Anyways, does anyone on the AL board use it with GT kids? How do you like it? Pros and cons? TIA!
