Re: Math u see

the fact that you use "age 3.5" and "very distracted" in the same sentence is amusing to me.

I'm going to be one of those in the camp of - just wait. let her breeze thru workbooks til her heart's content. but playing a game with mom will be just that. It will try your patience to no end. that's part of the fun of it. to teach them lovingly how to pay attention but also to get caught up with them in life's little distractions. because they are learning so much - their brains are going so fast, they can't help but think of the 1,000,000 things that the game is reminding them of. It's OK. there is no rush. Get caught up with her, answer her questions, and finish the game another day. in otherwords, don't have a "goal" of finishing the game, ever. just play.
