  1. My 8yo son is currently using Horizons 3rd grade math. We both like the worksheets and that it has built in review. He's moving through it fine, but I feel like we're reaching a point where he is looking for more of the "why" not just the "how". I'm not looking to abandon the curriculum entirely, but I'm looking for something to add to round out the conceptual side of math that I feel is lacking. I've seen a lot of people talking positively about RightStart, Singapore (I see there are 2 options, Dimensions Math and Primary Math - happy to hear about both of these), and Math in Focus and
  2. I am looking for a new math curriculum for next year for my little guy. This year we did Saxon and while I liked some of the teaching approaches, it was SO boring for him. He is VERY math minded, so most days we did two or three lessons and will have finished Saxon 1 and 2 by the end of this year. Despite how much he has learned, he just didn't enjoy math like he did before we started 'formal curriculum'. I want him to enjoy math again and I think for him that means more color. I am looking at both Horizons and Math Mammoth and am hoping for some tips from anyone who has used either
  3. Hi, I have a gifted 10 year old that will be officially in 5th grade in the fall. I am trying to nail down what to use for math with him. Math is definitely his best and easiest subject for him. He is doing Horizons Math 4 right now, coupled with Singapore Math 4. He's doing just the student book in the Singapore "just for fun" and by choice. He is good at self-teaching, which is great since math is not my best subject. For fall, should I continue with Horizons 5? Should we do Singapore Math 5 too, as I am sure he will ask for it? Or, I also had someone ask me if we were starting h
  4. We use Horizons math and I have been planning on transitioning to a new program our prealgebra year. I am fairly certain that I have settled on (generic) chalkdust and have been checking out the prealgebra book and DVDs. I am a little uncertain though as I keep seeing things like, "I have found that I can move directly into Algebra I from Horizon 6 without any intermediate work" (taken from Rainbow Resource). I don't want to push too hard, but if we can speed up math a year, I am all for it. Have you skipped prealgebra after Horizons? Have you used Prealgebra and/or Algebra from Chalkdust
  5. I have pondered back & forth on this thought and I just cannot make up my mind for sure. Here is my dilemma. My son used Singapore all the way through 6th grade & is now in 7th using Saxon 87. My daughter did MFW K & MFW 1st with the math as included, then I had her do Singapore 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, which she did great & completed in a year. She loves math & does fine. She had seen Horizon's & really wanted to use it though. This year though, for my dd's 3rd grade year, I gave in & bought Horizon's 3rd. She loved it - she did fine & rarely even misses any problems -
  6. My ODS is going into 6th grade next year. He has done 2 years of Singapore math and that didn't go so well so this year he is doing 5th grade Horizons math. I want to set him up for middle/high school and I am worried Horizons isn't the best choice for 6th grade and beyond. My first reaction is to switch to Saxon Math. He needs a spiral math program because the mastery approach (Singapore) didn't work for him. Your thoughts, suggestions, ideas, etc. I will take any and all! TIA
  7. Would love to hear CLE and Horizon users for 4th grade, I have some questions. My son is currently in public school - 3rd grade. We will start homeschooling for the first time after this school year and I plan to use CLE LA (of course I'll test him first to make sure). I chose CLE because its open & go. Do I need to add anything else to the CLE LA? I'm not crazy about CLE's Reading so I don't plan to get it. Any ideas what I can use or do for him? He already reads on a 4th to 5th grade level in 3rd grade. He is GREAT with vocab words. He's been dubbed "Word Master" in school bec
  8. My daughter is going to be three in a few weeks and we've been doing Get Ready for the Code book A and were nearly done. Mostly doing the phonics and not too much handwriting although she is starting to request it. This is all at her desire but when she does do it she does like 15 pages in one sitting so we are about to finish book A. She does very well with listening to directions, picking out letter sounds etc. She can uses scissors and cuts well for her age. Knows most shapes and colors. My question is, she loves worksheets. I am also using BFIAR and we read tons of books but what
  9. We've used Horizons 1-5 (and Singapore Math 1-5) and are now half way through Horizons 6 (and Singapore 6.) I've been happy with Horizons 1st-5th, but Horizons 6 just seems so weak. Mostly review. Don't know if it really is weak or if it could be that we've covered more ground because we've also used Singapore. Has anyone else used Horizons 1-5 and been disappointed with 6? Anyone else held and looked at Horizons pre-algebra and been disappointed with that, too?
  10. My daughter used Horizons for 1st through 4th Book A. We took a break from it last year and used TT 5 and 6. She is going to be using TT 7 and then I started looking at Horizons 5. Do you think it would be too much math?
  11. For those of you who use Horizons; my dd is in 5th grade using Horizons 4th grade. In the first book, is it okay if I let her take the test until it becomes difficult for her? I know some of the beginning is pretty easy for her and Annette, would like to finish early so she can start the 5th grade book sometime this year. We went with the 4th grade level because we both knew the 5th grade, would have been too difficult (we looked at the placement test and samples). Would appreciate any advice with testing to find placement in the program.
  12. After using Saxon 1 lightly with my 2nd dd for K this year, I am thinking it is not going to be a good fit for her. My oldest went through Saxon 1-3 and has done very well with it, however she is more of a perfect paula, while #2 is a wiggly willy. I made some adjustments to the way I used Saxon to break up the lessons and change the scenery, but it didn't seem like it was enough. I think she would do better with shorter lessons and more visually appealing pages. I have stopped using Saxon and have been doing various math games with her, and for the most part, she enjoys that. I am not really
  13. I think I have narrowed it down with what math programs I would like to use with my K, 2nd & 3rd grade dc next school year. Horizons or Bob Jones Math. Can anyone tell me about these two? Compare them? What are the weaknesses and strengths? Even if one hasn't used both I'm interested in hearing your thoughts. I understand, and correct me if I'm wrong, that BJ is more mastery and Horizon is more spiral, they are both colorful and Horizon uses lots of manipulative. I don't consider one better than then the other but would like to know the differences and such. Appreciate your i
  14. I'm considering changing math programs. My ds is in 3B and although he is doing fine with it, I sense that it would be more beneficial for him to have more consistent review of the material he is learning. I've never even seen Horizons until this year when I started using K with my Ker, and I'm surprised at how much I am enjoying it (ok, ok, I know it is only k, but still....) So, I downloaded the placement test, and I fear my ds will need to go back to the 2rd grade level because there are just some concepts in the 3rd grade placement test that we haven't even touched yet...area, volum
