Well, it's sort of math. I handed Catherine a bunch of art supplies and a piece of bristol board and told her to write down a times table that's been causing her trouble in as many different ways as she could, over and over and over again. I'm hoping she comes out of it with the table drilled into her skull. Who knows - it might work.
We did do a spelling test but I decided to go with the crafts approach in math because her cousin is coming up to spend the night and that means her brain cells have turned to little quivering balls of anticipatory excitement. We might try some worksheets a little later but I'm not optimistic.
