For a while I wandered away from Waldorf but then my adorable little girl told me, “Mommy? I really really like that artsy-fartsy stuff.” So, we’re back. We’ve been using Singapore Math and it has been good to us but last week I ordered Christopherus 2nd grade math. We started it yesterday. The little one is enchanted. I could barely keep up with demands for division problems, something we had never even spoken about until yesterday.
It’s always frightening for me to step off into the abyss of a non-traditional approach to education, especially when it comes to mathematics. I want my daughter to be up to date. I also want her to love math. Which is more important?
