a first …

.. for him… Yesterday I had to “ground” Opie form the piano until he could recall his division facts without stalling… I told him when he could tell me instantly a math problem I call out he could have the piano back. I paralleled it to how “quickly” he is able to just go to the piano and play without thinking “Rondo Alla Turca”. He needs to be just as quick with his math. Instantly, he and his sister began holding up flashcards and making a pile of “knows” and a pile of “don’t knows”. This morning he is dying to get the piano back…
