  1. I'd love some advice from seasoned math curriculum users! I have three kids, 9, 6, and 6, (about to turn ages though..) who will be 4th/5th grade and 2nd grade next year. We've been using Right Start and Life of Fred from the beginning with all three. They all adore Life of Fred as a supplement, as do I, and so that is not a problem at all. The question is Right Start. My oldest is not a math lover, though she's competent and does ok. But it's so SLOW. We struggle to get through all the lessons and I feel we are falling behind. It just doesn't seem to be a curriculum that is easy
  2. My son is almost done with Right Start Level C. I have really liked Right Start however it's feeling a bit slow paced (hard to explain I guess since it doesn't seem to be a matter of just doing more then a lesson per day- my son doesn't really go for that). My son does very well with math. I'm also looking for something that might be less teacher intensive (I actually like teaching it but finding it a challenge now that I'm needing more time with my 5 yr old). I'm thinking of trying Math Mammoth. However, I'm wondering for those of you that have done RS level D and liked it, are there an
  3. I'm considering switching from RightStart to Math in Focus. My 8 yr old is almost done with RightStart level C. A friend loaned me Math in Focus 3A and B. I've started looking at 3A and see that my son has already learned the first several sections of the book "the RightStart way". I gave him a problem or two from the Math in Focus book that I knew he knows how to do in his own way (from RighStart) but he had a big reaction to it saying he had no idea and couldn't do it. When I explained a few things he was able to do it. But I' wondering... should he learn how to do it the Singapore way
  4. My 8yo is very bright and often thinks up ways of doing math problems that hadn't occurred to me but work. She did Math Mammoth through 3B, but asked to switch to CLE this year (level 400) because she liked the idea of more varied topics (her older sister has used CLE for several years). She isn't happy with it, though, and complains every time. I'm wondering about switching her to something completely different and hands on. RightStart looks like it could be a good fit. She would start at Level E according to the placement test. We have the math games set. I wondered about just playing t
  5. Is there a specific sequence for integrating the worksheets and lessons? I don't see any guide for matching up worksheets to lesson topics. I can't decide when do I assign the worksheets.
  6. I have an 11 year old starting 6th this fall. She will be starting D. I know - REALLY behind. Now, I completely understand not needing to "keep up" with PS kids, however, I have just this year planned to enroll her in a ALE parent partnership with the PS for various reasons. Here are my fears and questions. She is behind for the most part just because we took it REALLY slow and almost to the point of me being lazy her first few years of school. Now, I am trying to catch her up and I don't know how. Math is so not my thing!! My husband, on the other hand, was a Math major and he was the
  7. I just started Rightstart A with my almost 6 yr old son. The first few lessons were great! I still like it, but my son is having difficulty "seeing" the numbers. He really wants to count. He can recognize up to 5 pretty well, but he rarely gets 6-10 right. Since I have not allowed him to count, he thinks it is a guessing game. When he doesn't instantly know the number is, he starts guessing. When I ask him to stop guessing and think about it, he says, "but you won't let me count!" I'm not sure what to do to help him see the numbers as a quantity of 8 or 6 or 9 without thinking it is a guessing
  8. are there any families that have found Beast Academy to fit well into a particular level of RS Math? i tried to schlog through the 50-some-odd pages of posts about beast academy guinea pigs and .... well, here i am just starting a new thread :tongue_smilie:
  9. For those of you who have used Right Start..... We are finishing C with my daughter right now and just starting C with my son. We have purposely (and sometimes lazily) taken the slow route with my daughter, but she seems to solidly understand and we have no doubt she can be up to speed by the time she hits high school. The one area she really struggles in is knowing the math facts. We did not play the games as much as we should, but I just don't have the time to devote to that. Even though I only have two kids they both still require almost all subjects be done with me. So, I am wonde
  10. My son is 6 and we started RightStart A in August for Kindy math. He is good in math and more advanced than a younger K student, but he does not like RightStart. He is a wiggly/active boy and enjoys hands-on activities, but not when it comes to this math program. It's funny because many people say to use this program with a kid like him. He understands the concepts and does not mind using the abacus, but does not get into the card games, using tiles, etc. It's more of a drudgery to him. He does not act like this with his other subjects. He actually likes his LA Lifepacs and Rod and Staf
  11. Scenario: bright, mathy 6 yo girl. Learns quickly, loves math, loves games. According to Right Start's Starting Level Questionnaire she belongs in Level C. Is there any advantage to putting her into Level B instead? Are the transition lessons really enough to get her up to speed to the RS way of approaching math? I'm feeling intimidated by how different RS is! I don't want there to be gaps. But, I've heard that it's very difficult to accelerate through RS levels. I don't want to spend a year reviewing what she knows - but with a RS twist. But, on the other hand, I don't want
  12. I believe this may be my very first post even though I've been reading this board since last October. You all have added so much wisdom and insight, and have helped me make so many of my decisions. Thank you so much for that! The problem with these board is that it is at times TOO helpful :) So here's the deal: I have a near 6 y/o ds who I pulled out of pre-school last year mainly because we were down to one car, and not because I ever had any intention of homeschooling. The problem was I began reading about homeschooling (that's usually where I get myself in trouble:) I also have a risin
  13. What are your experiences with these two programs for Kindergarten? I thought I was all set with Math-U-See..but I haven't ordered anything and I am drawn to Right Start. My son will be 5 when we start. He often blows me away with math concepts that he seems to understand. Today he told me that when he turns six (not 5 yet), Daddy will be 32. He was correct! And he does this type of thing on a regular basis. He also seems to understand addition concepts "in his head". We were talking about two weeks time and he figured out that he should add the 7 days in the first week to the 7 days
  14. Hey there! I am brand new here. My friend recommended that I direct my questions about the Right Start Math Curriculum here. I am planning to purchase Level A. I have some of the manipulatives already and would love to make a few of them as well. 1. My dad is going to make the colored tiles out of wood for us. He is only able to make 160 tiles with the wood he has on hand - instead of 200 tiles. Will this be a problem? 2. I have the Melissa and Doug abacus - can I use that? I remember coming across a blog post once about modifying the Melissa and Doug abacus to suit your needs. I thin
  15. I've searched the board but can't find this specific comparison. Anybody out there who has used both? If so, please compare in terms of daily time, rigor, retention, student's interest, etc. I am still planning my daughter's kindergarten curriculum, and really need to make some decisions soon. ;) Sadly, I actually found it easier and less stressful to plan my daughter's Grade 12 year than her sister's kindergarten year! I do so badly want to get started "well", if you know what I mean! :) Thanks so much for any help you can give!
  16. I just looked at this sight and YIKES!!!! That is some expensive game ther! Does anyone know if there is a site online for math games that are similar to right start? I already have tons of manipulatives, rods, clocks, geo-boards, pattern blocks...you name it! Now I would like some games to use with these fun things that isn't going to cost me a weeks pay! Thanks! Faithe
  17. I love RightStart math. I own all of the levels and have been through levels B-D with 2 children. 1 finished level E and another went through part of Level E. However, I need to be doing math with my 8 yo, almost 9 yo, and I'm not doing it. Math does not come easily to her, and she struggles. She's finally reading fluently, so I expect that math will go better. I'm not doing math with her, though, because I just can't bring myself to do the RightStart lessons. It's a chore to find time to do discussions with my older children for TOG, do phonics and handwriting with the 8 and 6 yo's,
  18. Help! My daughter will be 6 next month and we are working at the 1st grade level. This is our first year of homeschooling. We are currently using Singapore math but she hates it. Although she understands the material, she is bored with the workbooks. I am not sure what to do.... I had originally thought about going with right start math as they use lots of manipulatives and math games... or a friend uses Saxon and she likes that. Anyone out there have a similar situation and wisdom to share? thanks so much, :) Lindsey
