Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called "incremental development and continual review." Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year. Topics are never dropped but are increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar. The teacher's manual employs a unique instructional format. It contains daily lessons, each of which includes pre-class preparation instructions, a list of materials, and the entire scripted lesson. Scripted lessons provide the parent with questioning strategies and language designed to help children understand mathematical concepts. Since the teacher's manual is nonconsumable, it can be used in successive years with the purchase of new student workbooks and meeting books. This first edition Teacher's Manual is for Grade K.
I read some comments about it taking too long to prepare for some of the lessons, but I don't know what people are talking about. Most of the time all you have to do is cut some contruction paper and/or glue strips and make some copies of the master sheets at the end of the manual the night before. All it takes is 15-30mins after the kids go to bed. Note: There are 112 lessons.
Assessment forms, great for the homeschool profolio
Scripted, for dumbies like myself who need a little help explaining sometimes ;)
Very hands-on, which spells f-u-n for little kids
Spiral-bound, lays flat and stays opened!
Price - if you find a good used copy it will be cheaper than the Saxon website :)
Only enough lessons for 3 days a week - math should be done everyday!
Goes by a public school calendar - we do each lesson for two days just to stretch it out for a full school year (we school year-round)
Just to note:
I did not buy the meeting book or use "The Meeting" section of each lesson, I already do other group time calendar stuff with my kids. It starts in Sept, ends with the first week of June, and asks the same questions day after day about month, day, year, day of week, yesterday/today, count the numbers etc.
I did not buy the manipulative package, as I already owned most of them (it pays to have a sis work at an educational company and give me the discontinued stuff for free ;)
