My 2nd grade ADHD, SPD son is having the same experience with Math-U-See. Can’t follow the videos,(even when I pause and explain) doesn’t get the manipulatives at all, and really stresses everyday about math lessons.
I am new to homeschooling, took him out at Christmas when I realized he wasn’t learning to his full potential in the special ed classes in public school.
One day he gets it fine, other days he has no idea. Very distractable and hard to keep on task. Not sure how to reach through the wall. Very worried about multiplication and division since he still has not memorized adding numbers 1 – 20.
We are currently stuck at adding multiple numbers, adding more than 2 digit numbers with carrying, and subtraction with borrowing. Money sometimes throws him off with the decimal, but he’s getting it.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Update on our progress : We found another curriculum that works for us – Math Mammoth
