Tips from a really lazy dad – #4 : Helping kids with homework via chat

So sometimes my parents pick up the kids from school, and Kahurangi loves chatting, so we sometimes chat online while I am at work. One of the things the school is working on is answering addition problems fast. (Fast is the key, it’s almost more important than right). Chat is a great way to practice that. Below is a sample of it, I cut a lot of the math bits out because that isn’t super interesting. However I decided to leave in the surrounding conversation because it cracks me up.
