Kayla is learning math! And she's smiling!
Of course, I am still facing the reality that I have a sixth grader who has finally learned adding, but she HAS learned it! Today, I gave her the final test on that unit, and she got a 96%! She only made one mistake! You should have seen her smile.
She's learned to add. And she's learned how to learn math. Tomorrow, we begin subtracting. I'm going to start pushing her harder now that she's learned she can learn.
I knew she could learn. I just knew it! Yes, she learns a little slower and needs good explanations and lots of encouragement, but she CAN learn! And she thinks she is smart. She went home with a test that has a big, red 96% on it and a big smile on her face.
