Good Job Doing Maff

A typical afternoon for Mommy and the boy – at the table with math homework.

A few months ago, he was reluctant to do subtraction problems when borrowing was involved.

I tried to engage him by talking to the numbers and making a game of it.

Now he does this himself and he uses a funny voice.

“Mr. Seven, can I have a one?”

It cracks me up, pretty much everyday.  😀

Please ignore the messy house and piles of laundry in the background.  😳

I can only do so much, you know?

Note that he doesn’t yet have a standard tripod pencil grasp.  This is an ongoing goal at school and at home.  If your child struggles with this, you can go here or here for some suggestions.


Happy Monday!
