SKL Posted September 19, 2012 Share Posted September 19, 2012 It seems to me like most of the folks here are afterschooling kids who are ahead of the school's curriculum. What about kids who are challenged to keep up? I am feeling a little lonely as I consider how to work with my eldest. She sometimes has trouble keeping up with some of the concepts and workload. Not all the time, though. She currently has a solid "B" average, but there are times when she really blows an assignment and frustrates her teacher. I have online access to some of her upcoming assignments and supplemental online activities. I plan to have her do some of the activities on the weekends, but I'm wondering what the right balance may be. I've never been a fan of using our personal time to go over what they're doing in school, but maybe that's what this kid needs. Any thoughts? If your kid is slow to grasp certain concepts, do you go over the school material extra times, or try to find some parallel supplement to approach things from another angle, or what? And if Singapore Math is a little strange to your child, what might be a good supplement? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
