Subject: Re: Re: My son can't do math thanks to trailblazers

My 4th grade daughter has been doing kumons for 5 months now...she started in May of her 3rd grade..she was learning some great foundation pieces however because kumons works on arithmetic problems horizontally she was getting confused with the math at school with problems being presented vertically...did you face any of this? Her background is that as a K and 1st grader she was pulled from class for physical and occupational therapy during math which of course hurt her. Any thoughts or comments? Did your son experience this vertical/horizontal issue? i.e. horizontal: 14 + 25 = 39 vertical: 14 +25 ----- 39
