Fulfilled Fridays 15 Linkup


We had a big success this week. The Inventor had a rough time at math last year.

Because she had done so well in 2nd grade, we had advanced her into a Gifted & Talented Math class for 3rd grade. That was a mistake. By the end of the year she was really struggling. Her confidence was shot and she felt like she would never be able to do the simplest calculations.

I pulled her out of G&T math and placed her in regular 4th grade math. Because of the way the math program is designed, she is essentially repeating the same skills she was supposed to learn last year.

This year is all about confidence building.

And yesterday she found her confidence.

She has been working hard learning her multiplication facts using some minecraft coloring sheets. Over the last couple weeks, I have seen her slowly like math again.

But yesterday she started division. Division was her downfall last year. Once that entered our lives, math was evil. She was anxious, she was nervous, I think she even lost a little sleep over it earlier this week.

But she did it!

I introduced the lesson and gave her some problems to work out on her own. About 10 minutes later I heard her yell from the other room, “Division isn’t that bad and I had nothing to fear! I can do it!!!!!”

Confidence building for sure.

Being with her in that moment was the highlight of my week.
