  1. Mr. Wooden is awesome have tried in the past to have my son’s sped [special ed teacher] use the math resources and they never would. such a shame.

  2. Kim, thanks for writing. I’m sorry your son’s teacher didn’t use Mr. Woodin’s math resources. Have you thought of using them in short sessions after his after-school snack, and over vacations? As long as you take a couple weeks off every year, there are benefits to learning year-round.

  3. Yes but he has tutoring 2 a week in language and study table at lunch. That by evening that his ADHD is getting the best of him.

  4. Yes, and it’s hard to learn when you’re exhausted, or teach at the end of the day. That’s why some of us homeschool. If you can’t, I’d try do Woodin’s math with him over the holidays, in the late morning, or whenever you are both fresh and alert.
