jamotz Posted September 9, 2012 Share Posted September 9, 2012 We just finished our very first official Homeschool week!!!!! :w00t: I just have one question for all of the knowledgeable homeschoolers here: We started my son (5 years) on Saxon Math 1 because it seemed like the Saxon Math K was WAY too easy for him and would basically cover everything he already knew. He is a total Math lover! He plays with numbers and manipulatives for fun all day long. It seems as though Saxon Math 1 is a little slow to start. He has been counting to 100 for a long time now, knows his left and right, and has known about the calendar for a while too (we've been doing calendar work since he was 3!). He seems bored but I'm not sure if I should skip through anything. The teachers manual is a little tough to get through since it is all scripted. I don't want to miss something important, but I'm not sure what to do to keep him interested. Any advice? Am I missing something here? I know it has only been a week but I don't want him to be bored, which is the main reason I did not enroll him in public school in the first place! Also needed to add that the 3.5 year old is jealous that big brother does Math, so until his Math program arrives he sits in during our Math time and even he is breezing through it!
