Re: DS isn't getting math

I liked to use "real" objects first and then write it on paper. We also did lots of cooking. (like baking cookies helps with adding. ) You might try having him set the table. Counting out how many forks are needed or simple practical applications. If Subtraction is stressing him out, focus on addition and counting and try again later.
Focusing just on addition would be easy if I homeschooled, but he's in public school so he's getting work assigned for the class. He would be on a K level in math if I had to guess...but 1st grade for everything else. He was lacking in reading, but he's picked up better...spelling is a little harder, but he's not as bad in spelling as in math.
