Math Homework

by Leighann on March 28, 2012

Preparedness Kit	PendingWhen Q brought out her homework packet for the week, most of the activities involved measurement. One particular sheet asked her to find some type of scale in our home and weigh half a dozen objects.

We’ve got this one!!

As a d-kid, she weighs, counts, and measures almost daily.

The only difference was that she had to weigh in ounces, not grams.

I have had to be at my daughters school everyday since October checking and bolusing for food. I have thought about checking into homeschooling. What program do you use for homeschooling? Can you tell me a little of how it works?

Christina-

We don’t homeschool, that was just part of her weekly homework sent home from school.

When she was diagnosed at three she continued to go to preschool and then started at public school for kindergarten.

Our family personally believes in the value of a public education and make it work in terms of her diabetes care.

Have you talked with the school principal and the district to see what accommodations can be made so that they can manage her diabetes while she’s in school each day?

The nurse is only part time and taking care of her was taking too much time away from others. I like the education but thought it might be just as easy to stay home and do it myself.

I just blogged about diabetes and math homework too, but coming from a different angle. Weird!

How much of the math do you have her doing? I have to say that some days it takes everything in me, the adult, to figure it out, and yet I always look for little teaching moments to slowly train my son.
