  1. I haven't curriculum hopped/changed much over the last 19 or so years. Things I've used from the start and never deviated from: McGuffey's Primer reader/workbook + Phonics Pathways (my Primer has each child's name and the date they finished the book going back to my oldest sister in 1977!) A Reason for Spelling Evan-Moore Daily Language, etc. books Saxon math grades 1 and 2 Singapore Math 3A-6B + Horizons for review/supplement Teach Them Spanish K-5 Galore Park Spanish/French Ellen McHenry science, art and English Wes Olson's 101 science series (starting in upper el
  2. Well, I am a newbie. I wanted something different this year and something I could do with all of my children. For LA, we are all doing level 4. I am supplementing for my oldest with Classical academia press (narrative 2) and will try to squeeze in WWS. So far that hasn't happened. Also, supplementing tgtb's handwriting for my youngest. I like it. My girls are strong spellers, so so far it hasn't been too challenging. I elected to skip the writing part for my youngest since she is only in 2nd grade. I also add in vocab. I really like writing with ease's oral narration and c
  3. We stopped school in the spring at end of April. We did not start up again until end of August. Upon restarting, I found the kids to be quite behind, as if, they had forgotten much of what they learned last year. We had been using Singapore math, but since I had a BJU math on the shelf, son wanted to do it. Later, I bought one for daughter. For son, he is 11 yrs old (just turned 11) and in 5th grade. We are about six weeks in and his memory seems well jogged now. He says he loves BJU math, but I suspect this is because it involves so much review. It is easy for him, nothing is new.
  4. I'm looking for a complete math curriculum for my 2nd and 5th grader. I thought I was set on Singapore Math, but after some more research I'm going to add MM to the running. I'm looking for something which offers a lot of practice work, helps them strengthen their mental math skills, and helps builds a great foundation for middle and high school math. Would you say one of these fit the bill better than the other?
  5. I find that my most intense grades are typically the ones that correspond with time-intensive parenting more than schooling. There are times when certain academic things take time - academics prior to being able to read, and for both kids, going from finishing the Singapore Math workbooks to...anything...took effort, as does learning to write an essay and making sure we have supplies for high school labs. Some stretches take managerial time, some take driving time, but it depends on the kid and how many of those things collide at once. And, I think which of those things you find difficult r
  6. Daughter has always used SM. However, she was in a charter school that used Math In Focus. I do not think it worked well for her. Then she moved on to home schooling and we used Singapore Math US edition. I had some Beast Academy on the shelf. She finished SM 2B. Then started BA 2A. So far, she says it is "hard but fine." Meanwhile, older brother, who had done Singapore Math from the beginning through 5A, lost a lot of skills over the summer. One factor is, this was a weird year. We stopped late April and did not start again until about a month ago. We did ITBS this year and all school seemed
  7. Also, is TWTM even a popular curriculum anymore? There could be a lack of fresh new users to populate the education boards. Do new homeschoolers even read homeschooling books? Does TWTM even HAVE that magical app that all the new parents are asking for? Even if I WANTED to participate in the curriculum-specific boards, my experience is limited to outdated curricula. I used Singapore Math before they even HAD an Americanized version. We loved all of the cultural differences and learned from them. To this day, if I can’t identify a fruit, I call it a “weird singapore math fruit.”
  8. As often as needed for home classes. I kind of wish I had version tracking on the course description database our cover school uses, because the plan of study I put in at the beginning of the semester rarely even came close to matching the one at the end, especially those first few years (For example, we had quite a few years where I started out listing "Singapore Math 3A-B with IP and CWP" and ended up sounding like I was trying to create a new version of the 12 days of Christmas or something because I had so many books and levels listed in the effort to stay one step ahead (AoPS finally got
  9. I have two children doing BJU and one doing Math Mammoth right now. I find Singapore math to have shorter lessons than either of those. But I think my children are preferring BJU right now because it requires less thinking from them. Everything is more broken down and incremental, no big leaps. When we finish the year they are on for BJU right now, we will likely go back to Singapore Math, primary edition (US edition). Not because BJU is bad, BJU is fine and great. I just happen to already own all the Singapore Math books as I kept picking them up whenever I found the workbooks "used" but not
  10. My grandons went to a private school for first grade and they used Abeka math. I purchased the second grade (2A) Singapore math standards edition and we aren't very far into it and he is really struggling with the skip counting. I have Developing Number Concepts to help with place value but when I ask him to do the activities he gets upset because he feels it's beneath him because he "already know how to count". Is there a curriculum or a supplement that could help him with this? I like to hear what's worked for others as there are many options in how to handle this. Thanks!
  11. I'll be homeschooling for the first time this fall and am getting hung up on what Math curriculum to use. My son going into second grade did fine with Everyday Math in first grade, my son going into 5th grade struggled with 4th grade math, they used Zearn last year. I'm planning to homeschool my older son from now through the middle school years for sure. He has struggled quite a bit with school in general and has focus issues. We may send our younger son back to public school to finish out elementary. I like the looks of Math U See but am concerned it would be difficult for my younger so
  12. Yeah, I wonder about this too! My son disliked Miquon when I tried it with him. He found all the clapping, the number lines, etc in the beginning level really annoying and he was much happier with Singapore math. I think maybe because he already had his own way of thinking about numbers? My daughter responds really well to it. And it's not just the manipulatives, because we haven't used those much in a while. It's the whole structure of the program. (Obviously I agree with everyone that the teaching is the most important part and a program on it's own can't do it all.)
  13. I've read this thread a couple of times over the past week and I've been perplexed about how a student could skip to any typical algebra program after completing 3rd or 4th grade math. My kids understood the concepts of variables while still very young and one of mine thought solving equations like x^2 + 7 = 56 (and more complicated equations of that sort) was a fun puzzle prior to starting K, but we still went through Singapore Math (skipping sections as indicated) because there were so many concepts that kid didn't know (like fractions, decimals, techniques for multidigit multiplicatio
  14. Hello all! Question about math curriculum for my 5 year old. Background: I began our HS journey when we were thrust into quarantine on March 17. I had already planned to HS for 2020-21, which would have been my first year of HS, but since I already had all the curriculum, I decided to get a head start. I had been a high school teacher for 8 years, and I was not scared, worried or apprehensive about teaching my own children, so I dove in. Not a good idea to start with next years' work, but we survived. Also background: a good math teacher friend of mine recommended Singapore
  15. There used to be a list on the Singapore math website that listed which specific manipulatives are needed for each version and level of Singapore math. I cannot find this for the life of me! Does anyone know where to find this information? Thanks!

  18. It is BJU 5, but he had completed Singapore Math through 5A.
  19. Whether you’ve just pulled your child out of school or have been preparing to homeschool since they were babies, taking the first step toward homeschooling can be overwhelming. It’s completely normal to feel a little nervous about this. You are not alone! We’ve all at some point been pretty much where you are. Panicked and overwhelmed. Not to worry, the Hive Mind here at the Well-Trained Mind Forums have put together this letter and link fest to get you started on your path to homeschooling. So grab some coffee and your favorite snack and get ready to begin your adventures in homeschooling!
  20. Hoo boy that's a question 😄 I guess it started when my oldest was about 7 and working through singapore math grade 2. She started crying and resisting, which was unusual for her. I had to realise that the book was a tool for us, not a master. I let her take the chapter review as a test (she aced it) and we moved on. She was literally bored to tears with subtraction and regrouping. She still tends to prefer the challenging maths, even though she gets moody and frustrated (teen). We have meandered a lot on maths, I don't know that we have ever finished a book in a year. We jump around,
  21. Before you start, assess gaps in reading and math. I'm working on turning this into a LinkedIn Article. Homeschooled one all the way through high school, off to college soon; another 3 years younger also homeschooled since beginning. (Joint public school classes last 1 1/2 years for oldest; youngest was supposed to start some high school classes this year, if virtual school he'll be homeschooled full time this semester; this state allows dual homeschool and public school for 1 - 6 classes in high school.) I’ve been a volunteer literacy tutor for 26 years and have used a variety of a
  22. Any thoughts on starting a first grader on RightStart B when he hasn't done A? He's fairly but not crazy strong in math (in the advanced math group in his public school, but not ahead grade levels or anything). And he had the good fortune of being in a public school that offered Singapore math, which I know focuses on mental math. He's still not as strong in this area though as I'd like. He is comfortable with the number line, and with addition and subtraction- but he brute forces it each time, counting each number up or down. If you were to ask him 30 minus 10, he would sometimes count down b
  23. My daughter hated BA until she was ahead of the concepts. So basically, the practices are puzzles. Puzzles for practicing concepts is easier if you already get the concepts when applied in a normal way. I love Singapore Math and I do not use the teachers manual. I use the real Singapore Math and not one of the rewritten by American Publishers Standards or Math In Focus. We are doing BA now, but BA 2A along side SM 3A.
  24. I only "lend" things that I am willing to part with....which is frequently because I have a small house and try not to keep anything around I am not using. But I have two semi-related stories. 1. I needed to borrow a meat grinder once. I am a vegetarian and only needed it for a single cat food experiment. If the experiment went well, I planned to purchase my own but did not want to buy one until I knew. A friend offered me theirs. This person is always happy to lend things and I have borrowed from him frequently before that time. I got it home and tried to put it together. It was
  25. I have used RightStart A, B, and C and plan on switching to Singapore 3A next year. It's a combination of many things but ultimately I felt we needed a change. Any advice from those of you who use Singapore as your main math program? Any manipulatives you suggest I purchase? Do I need the Extra Practice Workbooks or are the regular workbooks enough? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Should I expect to spend extra time each day prepping? I see the HIG has lots of prepping instructions and was wondering if these are necessary or more for extra help for certain topics that are hard
