momsuz123 Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 Hi all, My oldest dd turns 8 tomorrow, she loves school, loves to be challenged, HATES being bored or when anything is too easy. She breezed through her Math if Focus 2b in about a month, did excellent on her tests. No, this is not a bragging post - I get that. What I do need help with is how to keep her happy and challenged. I don't necessarily want to just keep throwing more worksheets at her. I am wondering if trying a program like Aleks is a good idea to supplement. She wants more school, but I can only do so much. I have another dd that is struggling with school and really needs my help, she is not an independent reader so she is more glued to me. I also have a little guy. Any advice? This is not me pushing her either. Today, she aced the end of year test and then said, when is it ever going to be a little hard so it can be more fun. Sometimes I feel like I barely teach her. I try and introduce the lesson, she asks if she can get started right away on the workbook, and then she takes off. She was "advanced" in ps, but now she seems to be accelerating in her learning now that she is hs. Her language arts is even stronger than her math, but I think she is happier there, since she just picks up more books to read. Any advice? Like I said, please don't be offended, I am not trying to sound like some bragging mom - I have another child who is struggling, trust me I get both sides. Thanks:) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
