yeah i wrried about socialization too, but they have TONS OF IT!!! and it least this way, i know who its with
argh... im just annoyed! i found out one of my friends dds is getting tutored in math and i think thats just what i want too!
i tried that with her before, it doenst seem to make a difference, plus we are behind still from when courtney was in the hospital in august/sept.
I do understand your pain, my older ds had the hardest time with math until he got to Algebra and then he got A's.
Maggie I give you a lot of credit for homeschooling.

oh! im not smart enough and i cant teach either, there is just no other feasble option here!!
I taught for 8 years (from 7th-10th grade Eng/Rdg/ESL and coached freshmen cheerleading...now that's crazy...and I teach 3 days/wk now at a community college)...here is how I have to think of teaching. If a class was 50 mintues I would have to break it down. So it would end up being 10 minute warm-up activity, 15 min of writing, maybe 15 of reading lit and then remaining time discussing it. Of course you can change it up but it really seemed as though 20 min was probably the max time spent on any one activity. Students (even those at the college level...and I have straight from high through non-traditional students) seem to work a little better when it's constantly changing.
Just an idea~
