My son’s school started the Third Quarter of the SY after the holiday break and I feel like we haven’t done much for the Second Quarter. I am afraid that his schooling got compromised while we were dealing with all our problems back then but thankfully, we’re now in a good place and we can focus again on his learning. He’s gotten lower grades for the Second Quarter however are still high. I feel that his grades are too high because we never had those kinds of grades when we were kids. I mean, we can be in the Honor Roll yet getting 90+ grades is like seeing a unicorn. Now, average kids’ grades (seeing from social media) can get as high as 100%. Incredible, right?!!
Our first lessons in Math is about Roman Numerals. I was teaching my son about it being all too smart showing some flashcards and later realizing that I have forgotten which Hindu-Arabic numerals some letters correspond to. So I had to pause and had a quick glance at the text book and I was like oh, I forgot about D. So later on, we got into the right flow and he enjoyed adding and subtracting letters. It was fun.
Thank GOD for the internet — things are now easier to demonstrate.
Hoping for a better Third Quarter.
