It was nice to admit outloud to another homeschooling mom the other day that I completely failed at teaching math. See, we have officially reached CJ's actual learning level of math and I'm so used to him picking it up super easy that I was lazy and didn't teach him the concrete subtraction that borrows from each greater place value. I taught him the shortcut. On paper. Bad homeschool mom. I know better, and since I was able to admit my fault to a dear friend I was ready to go back and commit to making it right. So today, we did subtraction with blocks. LOTS of blocks. And got through 3 problems in a full hour. ONLY THREE! I had to keep telling myself (in my head) to chill out. Because seriously it was SO slow. So there you go, a little error on my part. It happens to the best of us.
