The Speed Drill

S was doing her speed drills in Math today. I gave her 1 minute to complete them.

The timer went off and she was not finished.

Needless to say, she was upset.

I tried to comfort her. Let her know it was OK. I just tried to encourage her to work faster next time and let her know the more she practiced, the faster she would become.

Through her tears she said, "I can't do it Mommy. I am not a super hero!"
