  1. Agreeing to be careful on defining terms here. My riser 3rd grader can: - read a chapter of Life of Fred, then answer the questions as I read out loud. - Complete her math worksheet from singapore math while I am sitting at the table, but not fully concentrated on her (possibly doing math with little brother, possibly also coaching older siblings in math) - read a chapter of a book slightly below her current reading level - listen to an audiobook I am actively involved in her math lesson, all language arts, reading lessons, and content subjects.
  2. Thank you Lori. Miquon looks very intriguing. I read that Singapore math introduces multiplication in grade 2. So I'm wondering if maybe it would be a good idea to try Miquon for grade 1 and then plan to move into Singapore 2A for grade 2? If I go this route, should I just aim to get through the first two Miquon books during grade one? Or should I try and get through all six Miquon books before beginning with Singapore 3A? From reading previous threads it seems a lot of people begin Singapore with 3A. Did you get through all six Miquon books before beginning Singapore with your DS1?
  3. Is there a way to give a student who is weak in math the benefit of the Singapore math approach? Looking over samples, I really appreciate much that is practical and visual about this approach. I also greatly appreciate the approach to thinking skills. I understand that some of the materials move more at the pace of a student who is natural and quick at math. I understand that for some materials, it might be necessary to use supplemental books to give more practice. Cost is an important factor to me, and using multiple books is more expensive. So what I am asking: I have a beginning fift
  4. Hello, everyone. Here's just a little backstory to my question: I have two school-aged children plus a preschooler (3 yrs old) and an almost 2 year old. I am due with our fifth in about a month. I have been using RightStart Math with my daughter (levels A-D), until I finally switched to Saxon at the end of this school year. I started my son with RightStart A in kindergarten this year. I felt like RightStart was a great choice for my daughter since she has ADHD and really needed a hands-on, out of the box approach. She learned the concepts really well and her mental math was impressive to me.
  5. Last year I bought it from Rainbow Resource, but I noticed the same thing as you this year. So I bought them from the Singapore Math website this year. The price was the same as RR and they had free shipping, so it was still a good deal.
  6. I recall I did not like Singapore Math until level 3. I own all the textbooks and some supplemental books through level 6. Daughter was doing Math In Focus at her charter school. It was not going the best, but the teacher was not good at teaching it. The teacher would make up weird worksheets on lined paper and then xerox them and hand them out and none of the kids or parents really knew what she was getting at. She pretty much got through MIF 2A. At home, she can test out of 2A of US edition Singapore Math, but I can see she is really working at it. However, she did get the problems correct
  7. We are doing Language Arts: TGTB, also, I have been adding in CAP W&R Math: Singapore Math History: tons of books, focusing on US History and geography this year Science: Mystery Science as well as some other things I have. We do a ton of science. I just follow whatever is of interest at the time. Since we just got a new puppy, I might curtail that in to an animal study, and focus on dogs. I can milk this for so much..everything from nutrition to anatomy to behavior. Latin: GSWL PE: Ninja Warrior extra: we always do a few composer and artists studies at
  8. I have read quite a few discussions about Singapore Math on this forum. Many have acronyms like MIF, CWP, HIG, etc. I have compiled an outline here. Hope it helps. The Singapore Math curriculum was conceptualized by the Ministry of Education in Singapore. It became popular worldwide due to its consistent top ranking on Trends in International Math and Science Study (TIMSS). The early adopters are home school students. Currently Singapore Math is used in 100 over US school districts. The math learning process comprises three steps which are: concrete, pictorial, and abstract. The con
  9. Those are both great ideas. Another straight forward math program to teach at that age: - Horizons -- Cathy Duffy review And if wanting to go full-on Asian style math: - Math in Focus -- US edition of Singapore Math; Cathy Duffy review
  10. This is not my only experience with math curriculum. I have taught for over 20 years in private classical schools. They have mostly used Singapore and Saxon. I also dabbled in Right Start and despised how slow it went. A lot of lower levels of math instruction are very basic at the younger grades- I would include Saxon in this. Is TGTB as rigorous as I would like- No. Neither is Saxon or Singapore Math. Is it a solid program similar to Math Mammoth and Singapore in that they don't spiral and cover all the 1st/2nd grade basics- yes! I am especially impressed with the mixed review and some
  11. Thanks so much for all your thoughtful responses. I am considering all your advice. I've gone down a bit of a math wormhole now. I think I will stick with the Math-U-See/Beast combo for my girls as they are doing well with it. For my upcoming first grader, I am wondering what your thoughts are on Singapore math? My son seems to be very intuitive with math so I'm wondering if I should start him on a more challenging curriculum. Would this be a good option for him? Should I stick with Math-U-See since I'm already using it? My concern with Singapore math is that I won't be able to effe
  12. I love the homeschooling without screens idea. 🙂 Overview for high school math courses for moms that need a brush up and are trying to figure out how to teach it (as in a session for algebra, a session for geometry, etc.). I would want to hear about the order of topics--when order matters and when it doesn't. I felt very confident switching up elementary math topics when we got stuck and needed to take a break from a concept, but when it came to algebra, I assumed things would build. Then I realized there are still a lot of discrete concepts (at least early on). Knowing how to skip somet
  13. Didn't I read here that Singapore Math is going to do away with the 3 or 4 or however many different editions there are currently and write a single for US market version?
  14. My son has been selected for the magnet and GT programs. However his assessments are all over the place. He gets 50% at times and 80% at others. He has unpredictable patterns. I need to build up his math sense. He is a 10 year old, past the age to do Singapore math or Beast Academy books, as his curriculum is above those. What would be good books to build up math sense?
  15. My daughter is completely burned out from her charter school. Everything was done through copy work there. She is not behind at all academically, so I am not concerned there. She does seem to enjoy reading. Her spelling is good enough that I could easily put her in SWO D if I were going that route. I am unsure where to place her for math. She used to love math, now she hates it. She has become convinced she is bad at everything. They did a horrible job teaching the math at the charter school. They used Math In Focus, but then would make up their own tests and the tests would have content that
  16. Good idea! I may do this. We used to do this for DD's Singapore Math workbooks. I didn't know whether it would be as easy to cut off a spiral, though.
  17. Hi there, it's been years since I used Singapore math (my kids who used it are in their 20's now), but we switched over at that same level. I really liked it, and my kids did too. We had the main text which had some math problems for them to do, plus their main workbook. We also used an extra workbook on top of that at some point -- I can't remember what it was, but possibly story problems only? And I think we didn't add that "extra" workbook until I worked with only the text and main workbook for a semester to decide what else I wanted. We didn't necessarily do all the problems. Maybe a
  18. I don't think anything you plan to do at home with homeschool curriculum is going to look like their public school curriculum. My sisters' kids go to public school and they're stuck at home right now, too. My sisters asked for recommendations and after looking at homeschool curricula, they said it just looks so different and foreign to them that they weren't sure they wanted to use it. Oh, and most homeschool curriculum pride themselves by not following common core (other than Singapore math, I think they have a CC version, but I'm not sure). Do you want to follow TWTM? You can buy a
  19. Thanks for your help. A problem solving supplement is probably what we need for this year. I need to figure out the best way to help her struggle a bit through the problems. For both of my kids I think I'm too quick to help or show them how to solve the problems. The FAN books seem to show the process for figuring out how to do the problems. Have you also used the Challenging Problems sets from Singapore Math (are they similar to the FAN books)? Do they teach the process or just provide problems? Is it really ok to not have done much geometry before high school? She doesn't even know wha
  20. I just have a question about this. I have always used the Primary Edition (US Edition, but do have some 3rd editions). My daughter is in 1st grade at a school that uses Math In Focus. She is bringing home work such as...middle of the school year, first grade... 528+257. She had regrouping in subtraction and addition, up to three digits, in mid first grade. Now, a couple weeks ago, she was bringing home mental math to the effect of 34+56. In my Singapore Math 1B book..the mental math was more along the lines of adding 9's and 8's and kept to adding in single digits. There were no charts that s
  21. Son seems to grasp math quickly. In the past, I have preferred doing math fact review and hands on activities to add to the math program. In the book we are in now, 3A, we have been skipping the reviews from the textbook but doing everything from the workbook. Would it be overkill to add in BJU math as a supplement? I don't mean doing all the activities and such. I mean teaching from the Singapore Math as our main math course, but then having the workbook to pull sheets from to use for extra review or reinforcement? I really like BJU but already own the books and workbooks and su
  22. We will be doing pre K, K and 2nd grade math. Do I need the teacher's Manuals? Do I even need the textbook or can I get away with just the workbooks?
  23. I think it is best to not post anything beyond which curriculum in the threads or not at all. For example, if your 6 yr old is doing Singapore Math 5A/B6A/B. then just post "Singapore Math." Or skip posting at all. There is no point to posting other than to give others ideas as to what to use with their children, that is it. When my oldest was doing 3rd grade math in kindergarten and reading chapter books, I did not post about it. Okay, so he was not homeschooling then, he was in private school. If someone asks, then it is fine to answer, but I think it is not really the point of the thread of
  24. You can do it! I homeschooled HG-PG kids throughout, one is in college now. I recommend following their lead and interests. And don't invest money in elementary level curriculum. We had a few workbooky things like handwriting without tears and Singapore math. But otherwise used live books, documentaries, various science kits, nature programs and hikes, etc etc etc. Using sources like that was far more engaging to my kids. For us, getting school done before lunch just worked way better for everyone. You may find a different groove. With co-ops and my kids we looked for stuff more f
