A new trend has popped up. Math work keeps getting started earlier & earlier, long before the school day is scheduled to start. Part it maybe because we keep leaving the text book sitting out on the kitchen table with papers and a couple of pencils tucked inside. It seems to draw us in "Hey, here is something we can do, let's get our math done real fast..."
I don't mind that math has taken on its own time frame, in fact I like how it has become simply another daily activity we might like to do, like playing a game or reading a book. But when I look up and see a calculator in with the waffles I think we might need to set some boundaries.
I am so glad she is loving math <3 This also means the approach of her and I doing her math together as co-students is working better than expected.
