Mom of 7Washington StateAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5One of the best!May 18, 2016Mom of 7Washington StateAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book is 164 pages long which is great compared to BJU and Horizons Kindergarten math which are both 320 pages long each. It's helpful having a shorter book when not trying to overwhelm a 5 or 6 year old with too much work but covers all the basics needed for that grade. I love how each page is filled with colors and pictures that keep their attention and make math fun. The only problem I had with this book is that it requires the teacher's edition for a small number of problems which you can easily make work without.
I also liked the preschool and kindergarten workbooks from Christian Light Publications which have a lot of math incorporated into the activities. Whatever math you choose I think it's important to include a lot of reading, music, art and outdoor play so your child doesn't get burned out doing work all the time. A Beka book is great in that area for all their subjects and I think they are one of the best curriculums out there. This comes from my experience homeschooling 5 children over the last 6 years. Hope this can help somebody else, God bless.
teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Colorful, Basic pagesApril 21, 2014teaching4MOAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4This is a colorful workbook with pages that are basic, not overwhelming with lots of work. My daughter really enjoys this book wanting to do more!
I purchased this book because my daughter is struggling with the math she is working on (purchased from a different website) and I needed her to fill in some gaps. I had determined to go with A Beka for 1st grade math so thought their K5 would be the best way to fill in the gaps. Because I am using it as a fill in I did not attempt to purchase a teacher guide to accompany the book. Through some research on their website, and what I was looking at here on CBD, there is not a teacher guide released for this book until July 2014.
My observations about this book:
There is not a workbook page for each lesson.
There is a lot of time introducing the numbers, and practice reading and writing them.
From the beginning, pennies and analog clocks are incorporated in the activities.
Actual addition problems seem to start from about lesson 57 (wb pg 45).
Number writing goes up to 100.
There really is no colors, shapes and such that are related to math in this book (probably in the k4 book.)
Lots of repetition
For my child some of this basic content is very necessary both to build confidence and to soak up concepts that were skimmed over in the other curriculum we used. Math can become tough over time and a solid foundation and understanding of the numbers is vital. It is possible that some children at the kinder age are more advanced than this and ready to move on to the next level. IF you think that may be your child can they mentally do single digit addition and subtraction? Each parent must evaluate the individual student as to what level they are ready for.
The quality of the book is good and is set at a very reasonable price. It meets my expectations, but wouldn't say it is the most amazing book so gets 4 out of 5. (I'd give it 4 1/2 if I could.)
