So, just about 2 weeks in and what a time I’ve had… between the actual teaching of the math, of course.
Lots of local deliveries of the book (nice when here on Bowen as free hand delivery and often 1:1 chat with parents about how to make it happen!), but also posted out to Calgary, Guelph and enquiries from Australia and New Zealand!! ‘Walk-throughs’ over the phone have also been happening, so have been busy there.
HOPING to have proper ‘grown up’ cart in place this weekend!! ready for the Feb conference 6-11th. Also, we have made progress in finding out the most cost effective postage methods for customers for whom hand delivery is impossible (well, not impossible, but I can’t nip to Australia or even Calgary and be back in time for dinner…)
Feedback from parents and students has been overwhelming (see a few comments below)
Now have several presentations and talks in the diary for Feb, March, April and May and am SLOWLY (very slowly) making progress using Facebook, Twitter and Blogging… all new to me. I was never a techy…
I do need help with how to connect with ‘groups’… home schooling FB groups, education groups, tutors etc… but slowly, slowly.
So a few days to go: Next week: 6-11th Feb, Bridge the Gap Math™ is part of BC Canadian Online Homeschool Conference 2019. Open to all. I will be live chatting via phone and Skype. See their website if interested in taking part: (https://canadianhomeschoolconference.com/).
Also now you can see sample pages from the book on this website as a few people said this would be helpful. Look under ‘USING THE BOOK’
Meanwhile... some utterly lovely feedback comments to share. Happy mom:
...She has created this resource which I really believe will be a game changer for you guys...(sent to sister in Alberta)
It REALLY, REALLY is helping already (me, for starters. It is amazing how little I recall and how challenging it is having my own math struggles but needing to help my kids! That is what I didn't count on so much - how much it helped ME!)
Seriously! We've worked while waiting on the ferry, waiting for a siblings guitar lesson to end, and at home. All three. One page at a time. My 15 year old said ,'Wow, I can't believe that I didn't know that I was always mixing up the definition for Product....etc. So this is going to be a critical aspect in terms of math reparations!
