  1. Hmm...we are still using some Michael Clay Thompson grammar and Daily Grammar even though we don't always do them every year (this is a year we are). Things we'll probably come back to are Ellen McHenry and Singapore Math (brief switch to Math Mammoth because we were using US Edition, and I want my son to have a smoother transition to Dimensions Math in 7th). We have also been using Notgrass consistently, though we didn't use it our first year. We have other repeats, particularly with supplements, but as for what we started with, that's probably all that's been carried through. We didn't start in K with our first one, and they are 4 grades apart, so there are times when we have gaps between one child finishing a resource and then next aging into it.
  2. My older ds finished AoPS PreAlgebra this past school year. He and I worked on it together with the videos (which we loved!) I’ve been considering putting him in an online class to free me up for my younger kids and a new baby coming this fall. I looked into AoPS online classes for Algebra 1, but didn’t care for the setup and thought the pace would be too much for my ds. I’ve since looked into other options and am wondering if anyone here has advice on which direction to take. 1) Dolciani Algebra 1 through Wilson Hill. Is Dolciani a decent choice for Algebra 1? I have heard Foersters get good reviews, as well as Jacobs. Any feedback on WHA Algebra 1? Is the digital writing tablet and the graphing calculator really necessary? 2) WTMA Algebra 1. Haven’t looked into this a lot, but they do offer an AoPS Algebra 1, I believe. 3) Do AoPS Algebra 1 ourselves. With the videos only covering through ch. 13, I believe. This makes me a little hesitant. We enjoyed AoPS a bunch, but it also took a lot of time. 4) Do Foersters or Jacobs Algebra 1 ourselves. Not familiar with these texts, but doubt they’d take as much time as AoPS. Or take the Jacobs course through Veritas Press Academy online school. Thoughts? Also, another thread got me thinking of my ds2. Regentrude mentioned making sure students write out their math work. I’m waffling on whether or not to do PreA with my ds2, and it’s precisely because of this issue. He is very intelligent and does so much math in his head. But he hates to write things down, which of course leads to silly mistakes. (Side note: he’s always struggled with the act of writing, and was “unofficially” diagnosed with dysgraphia by a special ed evaluator.) And when he does write things down, it doesn’t make sense to me. He likes to erase work he wrote, as if it’s clutter he doesn’t need anymore. It also is difficult sometimes in trying to follow his line of thinking- which is usually different, but nonetheless correct and rather creative. He has done Singapore Math Standards Ed. and Beast Academy and done very well in both. I’ve debated entering him in an online class for the same reasons for ds1, but the “won’t write things down” issue is making me think twice. Would an online class help him in this area?

  4. 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. :)
  5. 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!
  6. The kids that I volunteer with are elementary age, but some are older elementary. I have found myself doing long division with kids who have to figure out how many times 6 goes into 40 by counting by 6s...which would be fine if they could skip count, but they count each group of 6 on their fingers, leaving them no fingers to keep track of how many 6s they've counted. Painful does not begin to describe it. My own kids did use fingers when learning to count, but once they got into their school math they would sometimes use their hands to see the numbers but didn't seem to need to count them. I think once they got that there were 5 on one hand maybe they'd mentally count to get to 7, but they didn't really need to count them. Likewise, if they were thinking '10-3' they'd just put down 3 fingers and could 'see' 7. They may have counted at some point, but it was just a matter of days, maybe weeks, before they understood the numbers from 6-10 that would necessitate counting the second hand. The kids that I volunteer with don't really understand regrouping at all. By the end of K-1 I had coached them to start with 5 and just add the other fingers, but their curriculum the next year required them to draw sticks and count them, so they went from 'being able to hold the bigger number in their head' when adding 8+5 (start with the 8 and count up on 5 fingers) to having to draw 8 sticks and then 5 sticks and then start at 1 to count them all. I was ready to weep when, by spring of first grade, they had regressed and were no longer able to do what we were doing at the end of K. Constantly changing methods (and, for all I know, changing teachers), random worksheets with different requirements (much of it Eureka math), and the students' knowledge that everything would be marked wrong if they didn't draw...having done singapore math with my kids, I felt like they took random parts of it, made them as unwieldy as possible, and then stuck them back together in a nonsensical way such that the kids had neither the algorithms of traditional math teaching nor the concepts taught in singapore. It's worse than what I had in early elementary, which was 'traditional algorithm with no fact teaching so that you had to keep counting' - I remember a teacher saying that that's what those things on the end of our hands were for. 2 weeks of my kids using unit cube blocks to regroup into 10s and the mental math of all of us was better than what I had when I finished middle school. It's not the only way, obviously, but I remember watching them and thinking 'why did nobody do this with us...why did we keep counting?'.
  7. Ds learned his math facts at 13. We hit it from every direction for years and years. Ronit Bird. Education unboxed. Drill games. Math families singapore math style. The thing that worked was memorizing strings of numbers---for whatever reason 6x7 couldn't stick, but memorizing 6,12,18,24,30,36,42 did..... We started with 10s, then did 5s, then 2s, and branched up. My point is, it's possible to find something that works even when it's very difficult.
  8. 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.
  9. I like the way word problems are done better with BJU than Singapore Math. Singapore Math relies on rod diagrams for everything where as BJU will use a variety of pictures. For example, one specific problem in Singapore Math has 6 children, each giving $5 for something. Then it makes a rod diagram with links marked off to show it is 5 parts, each equal to six. This is okay and fine. But I like how BJU shows six sets of five which could be counted. For teaching multiplication, BJU spends a fair amount of time on skip counting and showing how repeat adding is the same thing and also on showing the various properties, commutative and so on. I like a lot about Singapore Math. But then there are specifics I like a lot that I see in BJU. Like how it teaches long division. And the fact that it is pretty much all work book. As in, everything we use, I don't have to worry about copying problems from a textbook page like needs to be done with some of SM problems. I have also considered just using both programs. But that also seems like overkill. He is actually getting it with Singapore Math.
  10. Have any of you used mus and singapore math together? I think both programs are great. MUS has the manipulatives and SM has the wonderful unique way of doing math. I think for the early grades manipulatives are essential. Has anyone tried this with first and second graders? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 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 https://beastacademy.com/. 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 https://www.rainbowresource.com/product/sku/003959. 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.
  12. 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?

  14. My 10yo DD is in 5th grade. We have been using SM since the beginning. I love it. I love that the way it explains things and the concrete, pictoral, abstract appoach. I love that it doesn't teach rote memorization of algorithms but teaches the concepts first. It works great for all of my DC - except my 10yo. We are starting the final review of 4A tomorrow and I will more than likely have to sit with her and go through most of the problems with her, reteaching half of it. She's just not getting it. When we do finally get to the point where she understands a topic we come back around to something new and she's completely forgotten it. This week she's forgotten how to subtract with regrouping. She also has mostly forgotten how to multiply two digit numbers. And multi-step word problems?...just not happening. I need something else. I probably should have tried something else a while ago. What else is out there? I haven't even looked at anything else since I found SM 5+ years ago. I want something that explains the "why" and not just the "how". I think we need something more incremental and with more review. Something not as challenging maybe? (I hate to say that. I love math and love the challenge of SM but this child is not mathy AT ALL and I'm starting to think that challenging is not right for her.) I really don't want to use Saxon. That's the only other math program that I really know anything about and I think we'd hate it. What's the slower, smaller steps, more review version of SM?
  15. I'm looking into Singapore math and many of the items available interest me. I want to be able to teach it with the text book. I was wondering if the workbook is a place to write out problems from the textbook like what you might use a "scratch" paper for, or if the two products are necessary to use together. Is it beneficial to use a practice book, or does it increase the workload significantly. I was thinking about buying the practice books instead of the textbook workbooks. Do you think it's more beneficial to actually purchase the textbook workbook? I also wanted to look into the Singapore math step-by-step problem solving, critical thinking, and the challenges workbooks. If you have any input on those it would be appreciated. *I noticed the practice book I was thinking of is a Frank schaffer publication. Have any of you used this as a supplemental practice book with Singapore math. I also noticed that the "Singapore math" books are an offshoot as well. I would still value input on those as well. I'll look through available posts to see if this has been covered recently.

  17. Just throwing it out there that Singapore's DImensions math series is visually pretty appealing. 6 to 8 cover pre-algebra through algebra. So you could do a placement and she where she lands. Singapore Math Live is adding DM 7 & 8 to their offerings so there are lectures and solution recordings. https://www.singaporemath.com/Dimensions_Math_s/339.htm https://www.singaporemathlive.com/dimensions-math.html

  20. 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
  21. Hits: Typetastic Catholic Heritage Curricula Handwriting Year 3 (cursive) Evan Moor Building Spelling Skills Home-made Fairy Tales unit study using If the Wolf Were an Octopus (RFP) and Tales of Wonder (Circe Press) and lots of picture books Daily Mental Math Tin Man Press Start Thinking Grade 3 Singapore Math Story of Civilization Part 2 The Medieval world Scratch (on my own curriculum based partially on the Scratch coding cards) - this is by far their favorite thing we are doing. Misses: Writing and Rhetoric Fable - I had really hoped that this would jumpstart our writing in third grade but it has not worked for us. We are about 3 lessons in and I'm seriously considering jumping ship. The problem is I have no idea what to jump ship to. The Jury is Out: Beast Academy - I really loved 2A-2D, but the kids continue to complain about it. And they absolutely hated the online component - they prefer the practice pages. Memoria Press Latina Christiana - My husband likes it and is teaching it, but the kids vacillate between being excited to do something with Dad and hating the amount of work required to learn a language, especially Latin.

  23. Saxon is a secular and popular math option. Singapore Math needs to make sense to YOU, first. All in ones: Calvert School, Laural Springs School, Oak Meadow, k12 (you may have the option to use them as a charter school for free), Keystone School has elementary through high school options. https://www.keystoneschoolonline.com Timberdoddle has secular packages. Pandia Press has a facebook page which will link you with hundreds of other secular only homeschoolers. PP publishes secular history and science. Another excellent place to start is Cathy Duffy's Review website. And of course, a lovely copy of The Well-Trained Mind. https://cathyduffyreviews.com/# Welcome to the Board!
  24. Hits Abeka Phonics K5 (Each year I do it, I streamline it a bit more. I know what to include and what to leave out) Zaner Bloser Handwriting- My boys prefer this to anything we try. You can scan a QR code to see a short video of how to form the letter and this tiny detail has made my boys not mind handwriting. BJU Math Grade 2 (Singapore math just stressed me out completely. I am so glad to have found something that feels right to me. DS loves it too. He loves the stories for each chapter. I worry he is missing out not having Singapore math, but my sanity is more important. sorry. Veritas Press Self Paced History Old Testament & Ancient Egypt - DS LOVE this, looking back I may for the future save this for 3rd grade for my kids rather than 2nd, but still, we enjoyed it. I HATE history, so not teaching it is a plus. PLUS I'm learning things with him I never did. Don't remember a thing about history from my education. MIsses Abeka Grade 2 Phonics - It wasn't bad or anything, but to us it seems completely a review from first and it was not needed for ds. We did the lesson for a while, then we went to just the seat work, then we dropped.
