I fully intend to use TT for my son, but the series starts at 3rd grade (which could possibly be done in 2nd). What are some ideas as to what I could use before then?

We used Horizons Math before my 2nd grade daughter started TT3. We also use Right Start Math, because we like the mental math and the emphasis on concepts. My 2nd grade daughter is average, at best, in math and does well with TT3 in 2nd grade.

I'm looking into TT as an option for next year (2nd).
Has anyone gone from Singapore 1 (with CLE supplement) to TT3?
Or should I go through CLE2 first?
Thoughts?

Honestly it is possible they are going to know enough to just start TT3 with out at lot of formal math.
it starts out pretty basic.

With my oldest we had just used the Christoperous math resources- basic quiet waldorfy math for k-2.
She is not mathy at all and still picked it up right away.

With my second who is very very mathy and has caught up to his much older sister had 0 formal math just daily math in real life ( -ie go put 6 cups on the table, how many stairs to the library door, put 3 legos back) and math picture books from the library (like Sir Cumference)

He flew through TT this year and was a bit bored with the first dozen lessons or so.

I wouldn't stress on finding a fancy or complicated program before launching TT3, If you really want something a few basic workbooks would be fine or a hand me down program but don't lay out money!.

Thanks for this. I have the Arithmetic Village books to use with him this year...so you think that will be enough before TT3?

oh those books look fun! The curric junkie in me wants them but I have so many nice math books already :)

I pulled out our TT books to see

The first lesson in TT3 covers simple adding and subtracting
0+0
9-1
1+5

lesson 2 covers ones and tens place ie how many tens and ones in 37?

lesson three even and odd-


so if you cover these ideas with your books which it looks like from the website you would be set.

it starts with lots of basic review but takes off.

hope that helps

My middle one went from Singapore 1 to TT3. It was a smooth transition. That will be what my youngest does as well.

Thanks! It seems like it starts off with very basic topics but then speeds up quickly. Yes, I can't wait to get started with the Arithmetic Village books. I'm hoping I can find some "jewels" at Hobby Lobby or something. :)
