# RightStart Level D 2nd edition

## Recommended Posts

So RightStart Level D 2nd edition was just released in August. I was wondering if anybody here was using it and how it's going?

I'm currently using the 2nd edition, Level B with my dd and would like to continue with RS. I've heard mixed reviews about C.

I had to wait until October to order so... Not yet.

I found C to be just fine.

Bumping this in hopes some on here are far enough along in 2nd edition level D to give a review.

If you used the 1st edition, do you like it better? Or, just how it's going with your dc after previous levels of RightStart?

We are now well into Level C and will likely continue next year. I just haven't heard much about the new Level D.

We are now, I guess.  :)  We're on Lesson 40.

I haven't used D Ed. 1, so can't comment on that.

It's going just fine.  It's heavy on multiplication, which DS has found frustrating in spots, just because it's new material and he's having to work hard at first.  But a couple of weeks past that, and he's finding multiplication pretty easy, and solving problems mentally by manipulating numbers.

There's been quite a bit of division as well, taught as the inverse of multiplication, so they're using the multiplication table to solve division problems.  And we've just gotten into order of operations as well, which DS is still forgetting sometimes.

We are using level d and are somewhere around lesson 55. There are some challenging algebraic thinking lessons that kind of caught my dd off guard, so working through those lessons was challenging. She was right on the line, I thought, for level D/E, but because there was no 2nd edition level E, we started her in D and I'm glad we did. My son is in level C, and that's challenging as well (he's in second grade) so we are going pretty slow but he's not struggling per se. I really like it, but I honestly wish there were more worksheet problems, especially for dd. The only way to reinforce is through games and with 3 kids in 3 different RS levels, its time consuming. DS is dyslexic, too, so he requires a lot of one-on-one.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE RightStart D (so far). We are on Lesson 80 of 2nd edition - a little more than halfway through - and I like it almost as much as Level B, which is really saying something. The way it relates multiplication, division and fractions is fantastic, and my non-mathy DD9 is really thriving with it. My DH remembers being VERY frustrated by fractions as a child, and he is amazed at how well DD9 understands them, and how they're taught. She has sailed right through this level with very little trouble. I'm thrilled.

Level C (2nd ed) is fine - nothing noteworthy - but like a pp above, I thought it should have provided more worksheets for practicing the concepts rather than such a high dependence on games. The games are great, but they are time consuming when you have multiple children, and worksheet practice would have been sufficient for the most part, probably. (Level D is MUCH better in that regard, btw.) The drawing lessons in C seemed daunting before we started, but they were enjoyable and easy to do, and it was an interesting way of reinforcing other concepts as well.
