  1. I think MEP is great. I've been using it for oldest dd, used Reception for ds and using Yr 1 with him now, and have just about completed Reception for dd5. I didn't want dd5 to be working on the same math book as ds6 - he tends to be a little slower with academic things than she is. So I thought I would pick up Miquon Orange for her to keep doing mathy things for the rest of the year. I just started reading through it, and it looks awesome! Like maybe I'll have her do that instead of MEP. So, in reading past threads it seems a lot of folks use Miquon as their main program through 3rd grad
  2. Last year we used MUS Primer with lots of supplements to fill in the holes. My son's favorite subject WAS math. For 1st we switched to Mammoth Math, because I felt Alpha seemed light. He hates it. The pages and amount of problems we need to do are overwhelming to him. He IS really progressing with math and I like open and go nature of MM. I'm torn because while I like the program it is killing his love for math. It has also become a fighting point during school. We finished the first book but I don't think I have it in me to fight through the second book. I kept hoping he would adjust but he i
  3. My 7yo and I have been using Miquon from the beginning, and are about to begin the final book in the series. I have to admit that I was disappointed to read the "after Miquon" threads, which confirmed that there isn't a published curriculum that serves as the perfect follow-up for Miquon. Because that would be too easy. :001_rolleyes: Cuisenaire rods have been absolutely perfect for Ds7, and I'd really like to continue using them after we finish Miquon (around Christmas?). He struggles with language, and the rods both suit his learning style and allow me to see how he’s solving the pro
  4. I just finished my first year of homeschooling. I have a son, who will be in first grade this fall, and I also teach math to my nephew, who will be in fourth grade. I used mostly MEP with both kids, and my kindergartner did Miquon orange some too. I also used the Right Start games and a few of the abacus activities and used some Math Mammoth toward the end of the year with my nephew. MEP was our consistent, almost every day curriculum though. When I taught in public and private schools, I never used one curriculum exclusively and almost always pieced things together and made up my own
  5. My DS (rising 2nd grader) was about to start SM 3A this fall when I'm recently beginning to have a change of heart. I was thinking of doing Math Mammoth 3A/Binstead (which honestly looks like he'll be able to cruise through) and maybe supplement with Miquon. I guess I'm just feeling like we don't need to rush, and we should maybe take a more relaxed approach to math this year. Again, my ds was doing very well with SM, but I'm not sure *I* am ready to do long division with him next year! Plus I'm needing a change from SM for other reasons, like the fact that using at least 3 (and more like
  6. Ok, so dd is about to start 3rd and Math is a real issue. We used MM the last 2 years and she hated it. Honestly, it made me a little crazy too, but it's what we had so we used it. She does not have any facts memorized. :( we were discussing plans for school together and the poor child almost cried thinking about math. She said all she does is sit with a work book and do problems. Yes, the pages overwhelm her despite my only assigning partial problems. I bought Miquon thinking my DS would enjoy it. Then I thought it might be beneficial to Dd too as long as I could keep my fear of being beh
  7. I have everything planned out for next year with both kids, with the exception of math for ds5. I have all the Miquon materials. But ds5 does not want anything to do with the C-Rods. He is not interested in me showing him anything. He wants to figure it out on his own. That was actually why I was attracted to Miquon. I thought it would encourage him to do just that. But it does require a bit of showing and suggesting. If I ask him to pick a page to do out of the Miquon book, he always chooses one that he can do without the C-Rods. As an example, ds5 likes to ask me math questions
  8. I have somehow convinced myself that we need to do Miquon. MM was working really well for ds until we got to subtraction sentences. He simply cannot get the connection between addition and subtraction. I figured it just needed time. He recently turned 5, so I don't want to push him further than he can comprehend and turn him off of math or school in general. I bought a few books on math games and we have been really enjoying just "playing" math. In fact, because of this experience I've recently rethought a lot of what I had planned for next year, and have realized that I don't need or wan
  9. I have a box of 155 wooden ones that dc use daily. We are about to start Miquon math also. My younger dc play with them frequently, simply being creative. Someone I know is selling a ton of wooden ones, like (800), for about 1/3 the price of buying them new. Is that a deal worth snatching up? If I could, I'd get just like 200-300, but it is an all or nothing deal.
  10. Hi, I started Rightstart math with my 4yo this fall, but it didn't really seem to click for either of us. We didn't get very far with it, but I think I will keep the math games book & cards to add some drill to the mix later. I really wanted it to work, sigh. Let the math curriculum merry-go-round begin :bored: I think my daughter might prefer more of a workbook approach. I am considering Singapore Earlybirds (Standards Edition), but I am wondering if I can do without the teacher's guide (about $100 for the year), or do the guides add a lot of help that I would miss? I am also con
  11. My almost 8 year old is a right-brained or VSL learner and has some color vision issues. He sees only the main colors, very little shades, and brown and green are often the same/grey. His reading is up to level now, but math is making very slow progress. He can understand the processes, negative numbers, place value, infinity, but he can not remember his addition facts. I've read this is typical. This is hard for me as I am a college math adjunct, and my son has dreams of building robots and thus needing math. We are using SM 1B. Slowly. Working some drill on math facts, but it doesn
  12. If the problem is 2 x 3, does it really matter if you think of it as two threes or three twos? In the lab annotations (and in the workbooks) it is opposite from the way I think of it.
  13. I just got my Miquon materials and am trying to figure out how to get started. I see that a lot of the worksheets are designed to one activity and then come back to it at a higher level. So at first I thought I would keep the worksheets in the book. But then I noticed that many of the worksheets are designed to place the c-rods on, and that would be easier taken out of the book. I am not sure how I am going to keep track of the worksheets if I take them out. How do you folks do it?
  14. I just bought all the Miquon materials for my almost 5yo ds. He can already count and recognize numbers up to 100. He can do addition problems from the worksheets. He can do the subtraction problems if I translate them into a word problem. He asks about multiplication all the time but is not quite ready to do it himself. He has been asking about how big the numbers go on the number line and is frustrated that there is no concrete answer. While I am trying to wrap my brain around Miquon, I have been letting ds play with the c-rods and do whatever he wants with the worksheets. He is s
  15. I am going to be starting Miquon with my almost 5yo. I have discovered that our plastic rods are insufficient for building, as they are not flat. So I am buying some wooden ones, and I just need to figure out how many I need. Rainbow Resource has a bucket of 155. Should I buy 2? Thanks!
  16. I am taking my dd10 out of public school, and find I have to do a lot of remedial math with her. She was in a second-language situation (we live abroad) and somehow she missed some significant things in math, though our country is strong in math (they use a program almost identical to Singapore math). That said, she can divide and multiply already, add long numbers, etc. But I think she's weak conceptually with math. This program looks like it is helping kids understand some deeper concepts about math, and this might help fill in some blanks for my daughter. I have read tha
  17. I'm thinking about my curriculum order for this year. What do you think was the single best curriculum purchase you ever made and why? It can be for any grade/subject. I'm just interested in your opinions. Thanks!
  18. We are currently using RightStart B. I started supplementing Right Start with the SM workbook and the Miquon Red book this year because I felt like my DS needed extra practice that he was needing. I believe RightStart is a good program, the problem is that I really don't enjoy teaching it. My question is what would I be missing if I dropped it and just used SM and Miquon, both of which my children and I enjoy (and find challenging in their own ways)? One thing I do like about RightStart is the mental math games that they play at the beginning of each lesson. Do the SM HIGs have s
  19. What do I need to order along with the Miquon orange workbook? I've read on some posts about a teaching diary, lab sheet annotations, a book called Knowing and Teaching Mathematics??? Also, which c-rods and how many (for 2-3 kids)?
  20. Are the Miquon Annotations necessary if using the Miquon books? Thanks!
  21. What's all the fuss about? It looks kind of... boring :leaving:
  22. How do you schedule your weeks? Do you do 2 days each of MM and MEP (alternating) and one day of Miquon? Or do you do a little Miquon each day on top of one of the other two? I don't plan on lining up any of the program contents... Do you think that will be ok? Or would it confuse the kids? Also, since MM and MEP are both complete programs, how long did it take to finish both? If you alternate days, did you change the pacing (1 MEP lesson per day, 1-2 pages of MM a day) in order to finish in a year? Lastly, how long does it take a student to go through all of the Miquon books? I

  24. DD4 is a math-y kid and is a few lessons away from finishing Saxon K. Having used Saxon for the full year with her, I realize it's not going to be a good fit for her going forward. (I love it, but alas, she doesn't like math doled out in small amounts or lots of writing ...) I don't want to rush her, but I also want to encourage her in her love of math ... I'm tending towards Miquon Math for the next year and then moving into Singapore (because I already have Singapore materials for 1A+). But of course, there is the Singapore Essentials program and I'm waffling ... Does anyone with exp
  25. Hi everyone, I just ordered RightStart A for the fall and am wondering if there is a workbook that I could supplement with it? My problem is that I have some health issues and know that RightStart is teacher intensive. My plan is on my good days to do RightStart, but I would also like a workbook to reinforce what he's learned and can do himself for my bad days when I won't be able to help him much. I am comfortable with math and am looking for something secular. From my reading here I like the idea of Singapore, MM, Miquon or MEP. Thoughts, suggestions? Thanks! Marisa
