  7. wow! im so happy im not the only one. this as been an incredibly stressful 6 weeks. my son previously did well with singapore in gr.6 and now in gr.7 when we moved into singaore's . discovering maths he is taking sooo long. he was great at math facts and now he has take few extra secs to remember them and he gets some wrong?not to mention all the careless mistakes he has been making. i dont have time for extra reinforcemnt as we would never at this rate be able to finish by the end of yr. i was considering switching to saxon. hmm mariss
  8. my son is in gr.7 with no experience in classical writing . we focused all the last 6 years on narrative/poetry writing.(writing workshop model). he likes creative writing.he is not keen on the switchover so even in week 5 he requires me to do the lesson with him. he prefers it .I read the lesson aloud and then send him off to do assignment. i am there to work with him if he gets stuck or revise his narrations/outlines. is that ok?by week 13 do you think he will be able to do it independtly. also is it normal some lessons take over an hour? thanks mariss ps im so pleased with his exposito
