Melinda S in TX Posted May 28, 2009 Share Posted May 28, 2009 We really like Singapore, but are having a hard time. Understanding is great, but retention is not. Since Singapore teaches whole units on one subject, the children are forgetting what they learned before they get back to it again. For instance, in 2B there are sixteen exercises on money. After that there are very few money questions. After the money lessons, you do six lessons on fractions and four on time. Then there is a review with a few money questions. Five lessons on capacity, four on graphs, six on geometry, and then a few money questions on a review. It's almost seventy-five lessons, in the next level (3A), before you get lessons on money again. The rest is just a few review question here and there. Does anyone work at several different areas of the books at once? Would it work to do lessons on money, fractions, time, and capacity, side by side, instead of one after the other?
