    Default 1st and 2nd grade Math

    Hi all! My son has been using T4L about a month after other programs were a complete bore to him. I find the LA program to be thorough in teaching phonics and reading; however, my son struggles with learning his addition and subtraction facts. With that says, I've noticed that T4L is not very intensive with that in either 1st or 2nd grade material. Seems to only be introducing the concepts or am I missing something?

    Some students will memorize facts in the course of their daily work. Others need more drill. (All but one of my kids needed daily facts drill.) We love TimezAttack. The first level is free. It started out just drilling multiplication facts, but now it has addition and subtraction, too. And, of course, there are always good old flashcards. My kids don't mind them occasionally, but TimezAttack is something they are eager to do every day.

    This boy hates drill! Any other suggestions?

    He loathes drill, but I'll check out TimezAttack as well. He loves video games!

    TIA

    Yes, TimezAttack is like a video game. My kids hate drill, too, so I found it to be a good way to sneak some in. Unfortunately, although they dislike drill, it's essential for some students.
