Learning at home
Counting out change, 8 year old Parker diligently completed his daily math ritual. He was enjoying the project; math and reading are his favorite subjects. �I like answering problems in math and I just like reading,� said Parker.
While Parker is finishing his math project his brother, Tyler, age 10, sits at his desk, also working on a math assignment involving adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing.
Math is Tyler�s favorite subject too; he likes adding things, but reading follows at a close second.
�I read like five hours a day,� said Tyler. His favorite books are mysteries, like Encyclopedia Brown.
�And historical novels,� adds his teacher. �We really get into books.�
