08:24 pm: MindApps
Ever since I found out what number facts are*, Teddy and I have been playing math facts before bed (dunno how it morphed to the new name, but so it goes). We do addition and subtraction and multiplication. Teddy started asking for it after I quizzed him a bit one afternoon.

Go figure. er... literally.

Anyway, we do math facts after we read. And after we do math facts, Teddy has taken to asking "what other MindApps did you download?"

Sometimes we play alphabet games. Tonight, he wanted to do just one level of Angry Birds. The second cave level.

So this is what they mean by digital native.

* Teddy's teacher wrote a lovely response to my query, explaining it.

What program do they use for math at Teddy's school? They use "Everyday Math" here. I do not love it. I love math and want the kids to learn it well since they both seem to show promise with it.

I don't know

Last I knew, they were using a couple of different ones, but I don't remember the names.

(I keep posting this and it keeps disappearing. If it shows up, I'll delete the extras. Sorry!)
