My DD was given 2 booklets per day. Not tracing. It's worksheets! Is it a normal practice to do 2 booklets per day per subject? It does seem like the teacher is accelerating her? :scratchhead:

Just curious what is the average standard for a K2 child achieves? At which level? Is it very common to complete level D (long multiplication/division, fraction intro) or level E (fractions)?

Really? I always thought a K2 child to complete 4 operators. But if start from K1 term 1, you mean average child uses 2 full years to learn addition & subtraction?

A lot of children take a long time to remember timetable.
Multiplication is always the difficult part or barrier, to overcome.
To memorize x2 to x9 ... take a long time

Even for addition or subtraction -
Some Kumon centre manager make the kids repeat the same level.
It depends on which centre u go to.

It didn't occur to me that memorizing timetable is tough. My experience on my DS was 2-3 weeks to memorized 2-11. My DD (whom attends kumon) at the same time learnt 2,3 and 6 timetable subconsciously. I didn't continue expose her further. I am not hurry. She is only N2, currently doing addition.
