  1. What Dudley said : ). Anyway, it's true, I LOVE Singapore math but you don't *need* the extra books. I do have many of them for whatever level I am teaching but I tend to pick them up at curriculum or library book sales for around $1.00-$3.00 so if they only get used partially it's no big deal. I have books like Intensive Practice, Topical Problem Solving, and Extra Practice. As far as HIG's go, they can be helpful with Singapore Primary for the reasons Dudley mentioned. I have the Standards HIG for every level I have used so far that has a HIG (1st-4th) but I don't use them a lot. But, then again, I'm strong in math and love the subject, so that helps, lol. Earlybird K does not have a HIG. I have used Math in Focus 1st, 2nd and 5th so far and the only TG I have is for the 2nd grade. It's a big TG like a school teacher would use; I don't know if they make a Math in Focus HOME study guide. It has been helpful but it also is geared toward a school setting so lots of adjusting is necessary. There really isn't a script to follow in the MIF TM like you might find in Rightstart Math and the teacher guidance is buried under all the "schooly" things you would need to do in a school setting. I only used it the first time through of teaching MIF 2nd grade. Definitely you will need manipulatives to teach 2nd grade math and the Standards HIG's do discuss what you would need and show a bit about how to use them. You also might want to search on teacherpayteachers and pinterest for additional help in teaching specific primary grades math topics with manipulatives. The difference between MIF and Standards primary seems to be in color, brightness and bling. One of my kiddos found the MIF textbook distracting due to the "busy" pages and preferred the more cartoony but seemingly simpler Standards textbooks. The workbooks are similar (b & w) but there are "thinking cap" type of puzzler questions every chapter in the MIF workbooks that Standards doesn't have. These are application, analysis, synthesis type of questions/problems. My 1st grader loves the MIF workbook but my now 4th grader didn't really enjoy it. There are a lot of problems per page/lesson in the MIF workbook so sometimes I would break the work in pieces and do it over days. What I have found to be the most fun and helpful as a supplement to Singapore Math is Beast Academy They just added 2A and 2B and I have used 3A-3D and am now using the 2nd grade books and the 4th grade books with two of my kiddos.I love these books for challenging problems, different ways to approach what is being learned from Singapore, and for reinforcement of skills. Some people use the books a grade behind but I find that if I pick and choose carefully I can still use a book at the same grade level as my child. That doesn't mean I don't revisit some topics I may have skipped, because I do that too. Another series I find particularly useful is Fan Math because it breaks down the Singapore way of problem solving (bar models, part to part, etc.) and provides lots of extra practice solving problems this way If I had to choose between using the Singapore "extra books" and using Beast Academy and Fan Math as "extras" I would choose Beast and Fan Math.

    Textbook and Teacher Guide Brand New US Edition $10 ppd for both


  3. I used singapore primary mathematics for first. At the beginning of the year I hated it and wanted nothing more to do with it. We are almost done this year and I have grown to love it. Here are my dislikes with this curriculum: -we are only doing textbook and workbook for first so the other books I feel I need to try next year overwhelms me. - I loathe the instructors guide which I haven't used this year, but I don't know how long I will make it not using the IG. -I love the progress ds has made with it and I hate to change curriculum since he is doing so well. I had planned on switching to bju math, but am still kind of clinging to singapore math. My other thing I was wondering about was math in focus. I only recently thought of using this curriculum. Any thoughts on how it compares to primary mathematics? Are there a ton of supplemental books? Is the instructors guide better? Better as in I love a scripted curriculum that tells me word for word what to say. Hope I'm clear about what I am looking for. Any thoughts or suggestions for second grade?

  7. Hi, These are the books that we like and are using for few yrs now and my DD is 9 yrs and in 4th grade. Language arts -First language lessons, book is very good.It doesn't require any writing for level 2. Writing with ease - My Kid just listens to the stories and answer the questions orally,We don't use the workbook/handwriting part at the end of the book. For reading comprehension -Reading Detective from Critical thinking and Evan moor daily reading comprehension. Math Singapore Math Standard Edition -We use both textbook and workbook.There are loads of Singapore Math books apart from text book and workbook.And they are good supplements too.Personally, I like Singapore Math because I don't have to break my head to think what will come next ,everything is grade wise ,with simple explanation.In public school we get one page of homework daily (either Math or English)and with that I don't whether they are covering every concept. This is the third yr we are using singapore math.When we started I bought Math mammoth to compare and see how it is ,but I didnt like math mammoth. You can teach them when they are with you and give them supplements to work independently when they are not.For all the books sample pages are available in Rainbow resource website. I also use commomcoresheets website for free math worksheets and they are awesome. Pick and choose what works for you and your kids.I would first work on the subject or concept that I think they are finding it difficult ,since time is limited. All the best.
  8. We are currently afterschooling ds and have loved using Singapore. I am ready to buy the next set but not sure what I need. I see textbook, workbook, teacher guides, home instructor guide and tests. Not sure what I need to purchase. Help! DS loves math as do I. I do not need step by step instruction for teaching him the concepts so would probably not use the teacher guides unless its not possible to figure out what they are asking for without it. Thanks!
  9. square_25, my older ds is on the extreme end of concept driven. I'm a science person, not a math person, so when he was little, we just played shop. I had no grand visions or pedagogical opinions, I just taught him about money, made up funny word problems, estimated stuff, played multiplication war, etc. Then, at the age of 6, having never been introduced to the concepts, he invented algebra, reasonably complex algebra. I had no idea that these thoughts were in his head, none. We had been playing shop. That is when I started reading up on how to teach him. But interestingly, he was extremely computation adverse. He *refused* drill, completely refused to do it. He seemed to only be able to practice his numeracy skills through complex 10 step word problems. It was at the age of 8 that he decided that all teaching was cheating, in fact, that all textbook explanations were cheating. I'm actually not sure how he learned fractions - he must have had insight and just confirmed his method by checking his answers in the back of the book, because he *refused* to be taught how to do it by me or by any written explanation. At the time he was working his way through the word problems in singapore math intensive practice. Over time, I came to believe that his mathematical skill was so high, that drill of any sort was the equivalent of proof-reading a phone book. You might have good intentions, but there is just no way you can actually *do* something so boring. However, this boy then took 3 years to get through AoPS intro algebra, and this slow speed just about gave me a heart attack. But he had to do it on his own. And he had to do it at his own pace. And he had to *derive* every. single. concept independently. But you know what, he was on the NZ IMO team at 15, and now is taking grad level math classes at MIT as a freshman. So his very strange path was apparently just right for him. My point is that you are mathy and your child is mathy. Perhaps there is just NO drill in her future. I remember my son memorizing his subtraction facts while concurrently working through AoPS algebra independently. Conceptually, he was far far far ahead, but when it came to *computation* he was very average. I've often wondered what would have happened to him if he had been forced to do math in school. My guess is that it would have drained the passion right out of him. I'm so grateful to be able to have offered him another path. Ruth in NZ
  10. When we had to have family step in to help with homeschooling (dd/cancer, another dd/NICU for an extended period), we had to keep things very simple and very minimal to actually get it done. Math: do the next lesson in the book. CLE math is very easy for a non-teacher to grade, Singapore math bar models caused my mom’s brain to melt, iykwim. Phonics: we went to workbooks—do the next lesson. Art: Artistic Pursuits kits with the accompanying supplies were a huge hit. Sonlight science kits (with supplies) were a huge hit for my elementary aged kids at the time. Basically, very clear assignments with all supplies included were the only things that got done. In terms of filling the time, SOTW audio history, Kumon books, and a basket of books helped. I would reserve them online and dh would do a library pickup weekly. My older children read a lot to the youngest because they had more tolerance for it. Also, be sure your sister can set up video chatting. Not only will it help maintain family bonds, but being available daily (at some point) to answer questions, ask accountability stuff (show me what you did in math today!) and to offer moral support was really helpful. We used FaceTime, but Skype is also great.
  11. I just ran across this and wonder if anyone is using it? thoughts? does she not use a HIG or Textbook then?
  12. I am a complete newbie starting to homeschool my 3rd and 1st grader this week! I purchased Singapore Standard 1A and 3A and, in reviewing the home instructors guide, I noticed that they broke it down into 43 lessons for 1st grade and 79 lessons for 3rd grade. Obviously, there's 90 days in the first half of the academic year. Should I have my 3rd grader do math almost daily and the 1st grader only a few days/week? Don't want to overload them, but certainly want to keep up the pace! Thank you!
  13. I always feel like 3rd grade is the year that I need to "get more serious" with curriculum choices, lol. For my DD (my 3rd, 3rd grader) we'll likely be continuing on with most things and starting new with others. Language Arts: Phonics/Spelling: Finish the Explode the Code series through book 8 (we're on book 6 now). Assorted phonics workbooks (she loves workbooks) Grammar: Possibly Easy Grammar, not sure yet. This is the first year I start "formal" grammar. Reading/Literature: Chapter Books with some basic book reports maybe some units from Moving Beyond the Page or Progeny Press; Core Knowledge Reading Skills Readers (free for download); the old Steck Vaughn Reading workbooks--we're finishing up Swells and Shells (grade 4) now. She loves these! Also listening in on poetry study with older siblings. Composition: She's been working on IEW's All Things Fun and Fascinating and also Bible Heroes. We'll continue with that and add in IEW SWI A, and possibly CAP Writing and Rhetoric Fable I. She already writes a lot of stories, keeps a journal/diary, and writes personal letters (for mailing) to friends. Handwriting: Zaner Bloser cursive Mathematics: Singapore Math Primary Standards 3 A and 3 B Finish Beast Academy 2 and start BA 3 Fan Math for additional problem solving (bar models & strategies); Math Detective (Critical Thinking Company) History: American Girl class at homeschool co-op; tagging along with big sister's history (ancients); Story of the World audio books Science: Stem Engineering class at homeschool co-op; tagging along with big sister's online chemistry and physics classes Religion: Devotions; reading and discussion of various books I have such as Wise Up! and books of parables, etc.; Sunday school class. Trying to decide if I want to start anything more formal at this point. Logic: Verbal and pictorial analogies (Critical Thinking Company books mostly); deductive reasoning puzzles. She loves logic!!!! Fine Arts: Art class at homeschool co-op; weekly piano lessons; audition community choir; ballet and tap dance Physical Education: Ballet and tap dance, swimming, horseback riding, general playing around........
  14. Do Singapore or Beast Academy ever run sales? Trying to decide when to buy for next year. I am going to look for the teacher guides to both used, and figure that would be better than sales anyway, but would love to get the workbooks at a discount. Are either of the workbooks legally reproducible? I know some companies allow it within a family and some don't. Thanks!

    Singapore Math, Primary Math Answer Key Booklet 4A-6B, U.S. edition: New(bought accidentally)-6ppd


  16. I’m afraid that I don’t like Saxon. Or really anything too textbooky for kids under fifth grade. I like Singapore math even though it didn’t work for dd (though I think that it could have if she hadn’t set her mind against it). I did a lot of my own stuff with her. As well as actually teaching using Kahn Academy.
  17. have a question my daughter will be 9 in June and she is in 3rd grade , I have been doing Singapore Math 2A and she is struggling with the math concept of subtracting with boworring and I feel that I would like to change curriculums, as she is going to be in 4th grade and still hasn’t started multiplying . I need something that has lots of review , was engaging, colorful (but also not to important if it wasn’t colorful) most important that she would enjoy! We have tried math-u see and was just to 👎🽠We also did Saxon it wasn’t to bad but it was just a little to much ,and now we have added life of Fred apples as just something fun to do? I was wondering if anyone had any advice if possible which math you think might help her? I’m debating on these: Saxon again( as it wasnt bad and does have a lot of review but don’t know if I should have her repeat 3rd grade math as I was told not to hold her back cause her reading and comprehension was already above grade level. Horizons I was told was good as it had a lot of review Abeka the same thing Or if I just stick to Singapore ? She is homeschooled and in the 3rd grade going into 4th. Please any advice will be a blessing. Christina
  18. I don't understand why they jump around like they do. In the past couple months they have just touched on a couple algebra concepts, then one geometry concept, then ratios, and now decimals. They've been doing decimals for about 1 week and the chapter test is tomorrow. I don't know what's next - maybe astronomy or geography. I know my kid is not the only one who won't retain any of this for more than 2 weeks. And another thing - they always have a semi-mandatory review before school on test days. The kids have to be there a half hour early. The teacher gives them the actual test questions and goes over them. This is awesome except for one thing. Kids who don't have a ride at that time have to miss the review. I really appreciate that the teacher does these reviews, but I'm not so thrilled that they always require a different transportation solution - and that I never find out until the night before. OK, I'm done whining now. :)
  19. I am really struggling and would really appreciate any help. We are pretty committed to Singapore math. However, I have a very rough foundation in math. I am hoping to be the primary math teacher for as long as I can, but my husband is the backup plan. With that being said, is there any help besides the Home Instructor's Guide for helping parents to grasp the concepts? We are only in Primary Mathematics 1B and it seems like I already have to spend way too much time trying to figure out what the Guide is saying. I wish it was more scripted. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  20. I have already purchased Singapore Math through 6B. My son likes it so we plan to finish it. But, looking at the MM scope and sequence, it seems that there are things in level 7 that my son won't have. The plan had been to go straight in to algebra. I know this is a solid plan, I have done it before and all was great. But now I am wondering if perhaps I should pick up the 2nd half of 7th grade MM to also work on this year. Or if it would likely be redundant and I just am not realizing it. I do not want to be redundant. He is actually a quick learner and starts to get antsy and can meltdown when overloaded or held back.
  21. Is there an alternative to AOPS pre-algebra. My daughter is strong in math, but doesn’t necessarily love it. I’m not sure the discovery method would work well for her. We’ve always used Singapore Mathematics Standard Edition, so I’d prefer to keep that same rigor for pre-algebra. I’m just not sure what program we should use.

  23. We have just started using CWP 2 with my 7 year old who is halfway through RSM C. I have heard many RSM families say they supplement with this to improve problem solving. Some of the problems seem very difficult for him. The computation part is easy but the set up seems to stump him at times. This is obviously evidence that we do indeed need this supplement but I'm wondering if I've chosen the right level. He's 8 in June, very competent in computation, but not wholly confident. Should we perhaps have started with book 1? We are not in the US so it's not particularly cheap to purchase another book.
  24. I've graduated two but it feels all new with this one, my just turned 7 year old. I am the type who loves the Saxon scripted teacher manuals, though I do not like Saxon. My son seems to know math intuitively. We've gone through Singapore Math Essentials (which he thought was easy) and I'm wondering where I want to go now. I'm not super strong in math so can I teach Singapore or MEP math well enough based on their teacher guides? I jumped around way too much with my older kids and I don't want to make the same mistake here especially since he loves it so much and just gets it. Thoughts?
