Excellent Program Mar 19, 2006
I began using Saxon Math Homeschool because I needed to home school for a few years and wanted to use the same curriculum as the school I expect to send the kids to when we move back "home." I was delighted with Saxon K and am just as pleased with Saxon 1. My 5 year son old is doing well with it and enjoys most of the lessons (because it was designed originally as a remedial program the publisher says kids can easily work one year ahead of designated "grade"). He does not however enjoy all the written work and we don't really need to do all of it. Each grade level repeats a healthy portion of the previous book. It is a great curriculum to stick with and I don't know anyone who has switched to something else once they used Saxon. I would recommend it to anyone! The hands on lessons and the incremental approach are great. Incremental means rather than a chapter of this and a chapter of that each lesson builds a little and concepts are interwoven. For instance dimes and pennies are interwoven with counting by tens, adding up a receipt with money in the tens place & ones place, and regrouping is introduced by exchanging pennies for dimes. There are specific manipulatives required for this program: balance, student clock (teacher clock with gearing is very helpful), geoboard with rubber bands, hundred number chart, mathlink cubes, pattern blocks, & ruler. You will also need the work books. Some people skip the meeting book portion of the lesson but I find it helpful though we don't do it every day.
