This year in Fifth grade we couldn't be happier with Nash's progress, and especially his supports and success in inclusion. He has been chosen Student Council rep for his class, loves going to school, has a new "girlfriend" and yes, is even enjoying math.
We have him in regular 5th grade math for a part of the math session, where he utilizes a calculator to do the work. Then he is pulled to work on his IEP goal Math work, where he uses a number line, manipulatives and math facts to work on his basic skills.
I found a video of this past summer where Nash first learned how to carry with double digit addition, utilizing a number line. I was so impressed when his tutor showed me Nash was doing this by himself, so I will show it here. At dinner, when I asked "what was the best part of your day?" Nash now answers emphatically "Math!" We've come a long way baby, from "Math makes me sweat" in fourth grade!
