hopeallgoeswell Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 Background: My dd is 9.5 yo, and we are 4 weeks into her 4th grade year. She has done SM US ed. 1B-4A and Miquon Orange-Green (over 1-3 grade). In general, she tolerates math (though she does fairly well most of the time when given explicit instructions). She rarely ever gets hung up on a topic. Now: We have been doing SM 4B for 4 weeks and she is still having trouble with the decimals EVERY DAY :001_huh:. We school math, reading, and writing year round, so it's not like the summer fog needs to wear off. Most of her problem is in place value. She has trouble saying whether it is a tenth or a hundredth or a thousandth. She cannot compare numbers unless I help her with the base ten blocks so she can see it. I went to the library and picked up some books on decimals (like LOF), but they seem like they will be over her head. I am not opposed to getting something different (like MUS or RS E) and using only part of it so we can take a bunny trail and learn this in a different way. Would it be possible we need to move onto something else (like fractions) and let this stew in the back of her mind for a bit? Has anyone been in a similar situation? Any suggestions?
