Declan just finished another term in school. Sean finally bought me a scanner so I was able scan off his tests yesterday. Unfortunately, he didn't do well on his math test. (Subtraction, Addition, and related facts...correcting a subtraction problem by adding the answer with the second number to find the first number....did that make sense? Adding 3 numbers) He did well with the addition and subtraction, he missed two because he wasn't paying attention to the sign. He also did well with the related facts, but he got all but one incorrect on the adding of 3 numbers. Now he was doing those very well for over a week, but for some reason, he forgot to add the first two numbers in the problem, move that number over to the next collum, and bring the remaining number over as well....example;
He was bringing over the first 2 numbers without adding them together and forgetting the third number. He would then just add the two numbers and make that his final answer. So instead of the answer being 13, he would make it 7. I was so upset. I spent so much time teaching him that, and he had it, but for some reason he forgot it on the test. Of course, Setons didn't have the test on the site for me to print out a new one, so he had to erase all the answers he got wrong. I had no idea what to do. I knew they were incorrect, was I suppose to just send them in incorrect and have him receive a bad grade, or have him figure out his mistakes and correct them himself? I decided to let him figure out what he did wrong and correct them. He did and got them all right the second time....sigh.
Easter is this Sunday and Seans store will be closed....Yippe!!! He was going to have to work, but the company decided to save a little money. So, we will be cooking a brunch and ordered our feast from Honeybaked.com, YUMMY!!! The boys will dye eggs and Sean will hide the plastic eggs for the kids and I to find...lol. I love Easter Sunday. Its a new start for the year, all sins washed away. Thanks to our loving Father in Heaven.
