I'm hoping someone will have some suggestions for what to do with my five year old. He is showing himself to have a natural bent for math and loves it. He is always mentally calculating, and with little instruction is able to do mental math, knows multiplication up to 12's, division is coming along, basic addition and subtraction are easy for him. He needs a more accelerated curriculum and I'm not sure the best way to keep him going. If it's too easy, he's very bored, and starts making up ways to make the problems more difficult. That or starts making chicken sounds, arg! We started out with Right Start A, but quickly skipped halfway into B, but much of that is too easy. I don't want to skip too many steps and make sure all the bases are covered, but he doesn't need lengthy explanations or activities to help him understand the concepts, he just gets numbers and relationships. Any advice? Move to Right Start C? I feel that getting through all of the Right Start lessons can be so very slow. The explanations of concepts and games are great, and work really well for my other children, but I'm not sure if sticking with the curriculum is a good fit for him, or if it will be at the right level or accelerated pace. Some have said Singapore math is quicker in pace - any experience with that? We also do Life of Fred as a supplement (which we love!) Is it advisable to skip levels? Or just try to go through faster? Are there any curriculum choices out there that would work better? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
