georgialee Posted January 27, 2012 Share Posted January 27, 2012 DS6 has done great in math (currently using MUS Alpha). We breezed through addition and are now on to subtraction. The problem is that he has a very hard time memorizing facts. I can do the same 3 facts for 3 days straight and he still won't remember them (but he has all 70 phonograms memorize... go figure). What can I do??? We can't move on in subtraction until he gets his addition down because of the way it is taught in MUS (6-4 = what number + 4 equals 6?). It is too tedious and frustrating (mostly for me) to have him use manipulatives for every.single.problem. Should I stop the book work and do just facts with him for a couple of weeks? Is there a game or something that would make it fun instead of going through flashcard after flashcard? Thanks! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
