Hi Everyone

We are new to homeschooling and ordered HOD for our girls (age 7 and 10). I could use some advice for my 10 yr old. She will be in Bigger Hearts this year.

She has struggled with math for several years. We've reached the point where she hates math. When she was in public school (up to 3rd grade) we hired tutors. We've done numerous testing to figure out if there is a learning disability. Memorization of math facts is not easy for her and has been a challenge. Worksheets are not her thing. We tired Math U See and Right Start. Both were not a fit. But I've decided we just need to plunge into something and stick it out.

She knows some of her math facts. Addition is easier than subtraction. Money is VERY hard for her. She can count change but only if it's the same value (i.e. 3 dimes is 30 cents). But she can't add a quarter, dime and nickel together. Telling time she is getting better on that but still struggles with it.

Does Singapore sound like a fit? Where to place her? I did purchase a Times Tales DVD for multiplication.

Thanks for the help,

Kristie
