Matryoshka Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 My older two dds started ps high school last week; that seems to be going well. Younger dd has been making some noises about trying middle school (she's in 6th). She has been very resistant lately to doing any reading (free, assigned, you name it) or writing (she managed to get away with doing almost no writing last year after she decided she didn't like WWS anymore). She does very well with outside deadlines and expectations. I have her signed up for a writing class. I put together a book group. It has been getting tiring trying to find outside motivation. She is also very social and for some reason I have not found the outside social opportunities for her that I had when my older kids were her age. She's lonely and bored and is constantly trying to sneak on the TV or video games (I hide the remotes and put blocks on the computer, but she often circumvents). So, school's only been on for a week, so I thought if we were to give it a shot, we should jump in sooner than later (can always pull her later). Middle school still uses Everyday Math. :glare: Dd is just finishing up AoPS Prealgebra (and did Singapore PM through 6a before that), and we're set to start AoPS Algebra in a couple of weeks. She is willing to afterschool AoPS if we send her - she likes math. So, would having EM at school be too painful? I hear through the grapevine that our school is at least teaching them the standard algorithms in middle school. Could I just think of it as extra math practice? What is EM like in 6th and 7th grades (they don't use it in 8th)? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
