We’re speaking with David Alewine in this Math Mentoring Moment Episode. David is home-schooling his twin 6 year olds and doing a fantastic job at weaving different curriculums and resources together to reach his kids and help them with what they need most.  David shares his story of how he chose to home-school, the benefits and drawbacks that he faces, and he’s seeking advice from Jon and Kyle about how and when to include “Drill and Kill” lessons!  This is another  Math Mentoring Moment episode where we talk with a member of the Math Moment Maker Community who is working through struggles and together we brainstorm possible next steps and strategies to overcome them.  You’ll Learn: When is drill and kill appropriate in my math class? How do I structure my math blocks when home-school teaching. How can I help my children learn math and still love math! Resources:  The Good and the Beautiful → https://www.goodandbeautiful.com/  Doug Clements & Julie Sarama → https://learningtrajectories.org  Cathy Fosnot’s Episode → https://makemathmoments.com/episode24  Dr. Nicki’s Newton’s Episode → https://makemathmoments.com/episode62
