One Proud Momma!

I can't help it! I'm one proud momma!

Recently, my twins, Ali and Lexi, got gold medals for Kumon® math. For those of you who are not familiar with the Kumon® method of learning, a gold medal means that one is 2-4 years in advance of their school level. My kids are in first grade, so while the rest of their peers are learning addition and subtraction, they are doing third and fourth grade math. Ali is doing fractions with LCM (Least Common Multiple) while Lexi is doing long division with a remainder.

My children are not math geniuses. Their advanced math skill level is due to the age-old adage - practice, practice, practice.

They started Kumon® when they were five years old, starting from tracing numbers, progressing to dot-pattern recognition, addition and subtraction, then multiplication and division up to where they are now, fractions.

Every day, including Christmas and other major holidays, they have to do 5-10 Kumon® math worksheets. Sometimes they do it willingly; sometimes they put up a fight. But with encouragement and firmness, they continue to persevere, and we all have seen the positive results that it has brought. Math is not something that they are afraid of. It has given them confidence in school and in everyday life. It has taught them the value of hard work and to appreciate the fruit of their efforts. More than the awards they received, I am happy that they are learning these valuable life lessons at an early age.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-31. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require message board participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 gift certificates.
