I have a second grade son, so I know how you feel. Since first grade children are learning to read and write also. You probably do not see lots of workbook pages and if he communicates as well as my son, it is probably difficult to actually know what he is doing in class. You should check with your local school or district to find out what first grade students are expected to learn and you should voice your concerns with your son's teacher also. You might want to look at some national math standards and some state standards. This would give you a sense of what your son should be able to do in mathematics at his age. Try this site - it has links to the national math standards as well as many state standards. http://www.enc.org/reform -Jenny, for the Teacher2Teacher service
