9/11 Attacks

At the current time, I have been putting my son through a summer school which I set up at home. He was having a difficult time with school in the 6th grade and I wasn't really satisfied with his teachers handling of the problems he was having. I downloaded the curriculum to try and help him get a better grasp of how to do the work needed. These packets were the closest to the type of work he was doing and it has been helping him much better. I think that it helped mostly because it showed me that he hadn't understood a lot of the 4th or 5th grade curriculum either. I have began reading more with him so he can get a better understanding by reading better and knowing what the words mean when he reads. Just taking the initiative to read and work with him has been invaluable and these packets, on the grade level he should be on, has helped greatly. The biggest reward is that he enjoys it as well.
