Jenny in GA Posted June 10, 2012 Share Posted June 10, 2012 I have two girls. One is in fifth grade, a little behind in math, and considers it her least favorite subject. She is halfway through MUS Epsilon. The other just finished third grade, is ahead in math, likes math okay, but gets very bored very quickly with repetition. (She is my MCT girl.) She is more than halfway through with MUS Delta. I am wondering if both of them (in different ways) would enjoy Life of Fred. For the older girl, I'm wondering if it would make her like math more, and not dread it. For the younger girl, I'm wondering if it would "make" her spend more time with math. Right now, she tends to have the lesson, "get" it, and then resent the fact that she has to do several problems of the same thing. (But I do think she needs the practice.) So I'm not sure if one or both girls should switch or if we should try supplementing with LoF. And even though I read their website, I'm not sure which book I should start each of them with. Also, would a beginning fourth grader do LoF on their own, or with an adult? (I'm quite sure she would want to do it with me, but I'm not sure how much time I could spare for it in light of my younger kid.) Any other thoughts? Thanks!
