Math Quiz Bee Elimination Round

9:10 pm From the Teacher, Grade 2 Lessons, Homeschoolers No More, Mathematics

She said they had the first elimination round for the Math Quiz Bee and she got the second highest score among her classmates.

Oh? I asked.

Yes! She said, with her signature look and furrow between the brows. She has mixed feelings that I don’t believe her.

For a while, I did feel surprise, not that I doubt she can do her best but because I was happy for her.

I am happy, deliriously happy. Why? Because math is her waterloo. The younger daughter has so much difficulty doing math problems that we used to be up late with me teaching her how dynamic subtraction is done and why this is even related to division. And when we do this, she gives me blank looks. And tears at times.

I told her, I want her to do her best to get a slot in the Math quiz bee but getting that second highest score is already a win for me.

I also told her that if she sets her heart with what she wants to achieve, she can overcome her difficulties.

Love, Tiger Mom, XOXO 😀
