................... Posted February 26, 2012 Share Posted February 26, 2012 My dd who will be in 3rd this year is very good at conceptualizing math and she does not need a ton of review. FOr K we used Miquon and Abeka and for 1st we used Abeka and things were rolling smoothly along until I stupidly decided to use Calvert for 2nd. We lost a TON of ground this year. Right now she knows most typical 2nd grade math concepts and her adding is fast, she can do multi-column addition with regrouping. Her subtraction is a little slower but if she is timed she churns out a whole page of mutli digit subtraction with borrowing extremely fast. She has also come up with several mental "tricks" on her own, and we own 130 board games, and she is one of the best players, though the youngest of the family, often beating our whole family in the shorter logic games, and coming in a close 2nd or 3rd in the 2 hour long resource management games. BUT she is a creative, crafty child who would rather paint pieces of bark and float them downstream while singing about rainbows and birdies...than do math. I have Saxon 3 sitting here unopened. I am a Saxon fan and I believe in it. It works, and at least it has many different problems on each page. Plus she can use her brother's old books, saving me a TON Of money. But...help me decide.
