He LOVED it!! He finished 2 lessons and almost finished a third. The only reason he stopped was he had to go to hockey practice. I asked him, "Do you like it?" and he said, "yes, I really do. It's fun. I like the sounds." YEAH!! Hopefully this will last! :-)
Positive: He really loves Teaching Textbooks. I think they really make it fun with the sounds and the characters on the screen. It is engaging and keeps his attention.
Negative: It definitely is too easy for him. I am thinking we should be able to get through level 5 by January (or earlier). Then start level 6. Sadly, I can't say that he will actually learn anything new in the process! I am so glad that I purchased Singapore 5 as a back-up!!! I really wish that they made TT true to grade level and more of a challenge!!! It is such a great concept but more of an extra review tool than actual complete math program.
Now his brother and sister really want to do it too!! The sad thing is I think C, who is entering 3rd grade, would be able to do TT level 5 easily. That is how easy this math program is!!
On a totally unrelated note ... here is a picture that I thought was fun that I made on picnik.com. It is a picture of B playing hockey using the neon effect. Have I mentioned that I love that website??
So, now I am off to redo B's math schedule for the week. Seeing how he already finished day 1 and half of day 2! He might even want to do more before Monday. Not such a bad problem to have! :-)
