Sahamamama Posted August 22, 2012 Share Posted August 22, 2012 (edited) How much time does/did your 2nd grader spend on math work (including drills, games, songs, hands-on, etc.)? So far this school year, we have been setting the timer for a daily one hour Math Block (but for all three students, so I'm moving around between them). The work is usually broken up into review, lesson, practice, card drill, computer drill, math songs, game, hands-on stuff (not all in one day). To some extent, I do feel as though I'm forcing her to plow through it, but I think this student needs a big push in math this year. She's not "behind," though.... just.... not where she should be? If we do anything less than 60 minutes with the 2nd grader, for some reason it feels like it's "not enough" for her at this season. IDK, we're not exactly trying to "catch up," just work our way to the proper starting spot. I don't feel comfortable jumping to a higher level with her, either. Just when I think she "has it," and we could jump ahead, she surprises me with the need for more practice. Will one hour a day be okay, at least for a while? I don't want to burn her out in math, but I think making less progress is more likely to lead to burn out than working hard each day will do. Any thoughts?
