Hi, My name is dot.
I have a second grader who is just beginning to learn about carrying
and borrowing. He is so frustrated in learning this new math to him.

I agree there is several ways to get a child to understand about this
math. I don't know exactly what format his teacher is using, but,
whatever it is he has not gotten it yet at school. I started working
with him at home and that night before we finished I saw a smile on
his face as a sign of relief I GOT IT !!! 
He was doing the 3 digit substrations. I would really love someone to
give me the best way that has worked for their students or their 2nd
grader who is not talented and gifted.

Thank you,
Desperate needs advice to help a 2nd grader succeed and feel good and
confident in knowing.
