I will be meeting with DD's 2nd grade teacher soon to discuss DD's math development, since DD has quickly mastered regular math material through 5th grade. The teacher wants to have DD use Khan Academy in the classroom, and she will be a "test-case" for the school since she will be the first kid to use it in her class, and possibly the first at her K-5 school. Since this is a first for the teacher, I have a chance to establish from the beginning how the program will be used for DD. I would love to hear from anyone with kids who have used Khan Academy, and how it has worked for them.
For DD, Khan Academy will be a supplement, rather than an alternative, to standard 2nd grade math, as the school system requires DD to participate in the regular 2nd grade math instruction time, and to take the end of unit assessments with her class (about once per month). The school uses FirstInMath.com for kids to practice their math skills on-line at home, mostly in the form of games and quizzes. Last week DD's teacher purchased the Challenge Math books for DD to use. We will be also be discussing the best way to use those books when we meet.
