math for 2nd grader....Singapore or CLE?

DD,8 is struggling with math.

We started the year off with Lifepacs for math. That was horrible!

I found Mastering Mathematics. We switched mid year.

While she is finally remembering her addition facts, I'm worried about us getting stuck in one place for too long. It's not laid out like a normal curriculum.

I've started looking at Singapore or CLE.

Any thoughts on either program?

Singapore is not expensive, but if you have a child that sturggles with math I don't know that I would pick it as my spine. Singapore moves quickly and does not have alot of review in it. I have used Singapore with all 3 of my boys and absolutely LOVE it, but with my youngest son he is just not getting enough review to solidify and retain what he has learned.(We use the text, workbook, extra practice, CWP, and IP) He is in the 2B books and even though we are still plugging along in his singapore books, I have just recently bought CLE and am piggybacking that into the Singapore.
