Lizajd5 Stars Out Of 5MB Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 1May 26, 2021LizajdQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I love this course for each of my boys! They are enjoying it so much compared to another math curriculum. Thank you MasterBooks for a wonderful course!
April1 Stars Out Of 5Not for 1st gradeDecember 31, 2020AprilQuality: 4Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1I am so frustrated with this curriculum. The year prior we used Abeka for math and absolutely loved it. Friends raved we needed to try this so we gave it a go and I'm kicking myself for it. I wasted time and money. We can't even use this because of how easy it is. I kept thinking it was review from pre-k and kindergarten but nope. And there's so much reading on the parents part it gets irritating when you have more than one kid you're schooling. Almost the whole book goes over place value and has a ton of "projects" that build throughout the book. There wasn't any of this in Abeka and she learned the concepts just fine without all the fluff.
Megan1 Stars Out Of 5Not what I was expectingAugust 19, 2020MeganQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1Overall the materials are nice but would consider this for a 3-4-year-old preschooler or possibly struggling kindergarten-aged child, not a 1st grader. The concepts were stuff he already learned and knew from preschool and kindergarten (that ended 2.5 months early to boot due to COVID). I tried to use it anyway, only used a few pages and the manipulatives in the back. I wished I hadn't and could return.

MamaOfFour4 Stars Out Of 5its okayDecember 20, 2019MamaOfFourQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4level 1 is for kinder level. my son (5yo) is very good at math and has finished this book in 4 months...i need something more challenging for him...
that being said, my daughter (4) is not so good in the math area and needs the slower pace, constant review of concepts and storyline so this book would be perfect for her.
so i would not rank this as a bad purchase, it really depends on the learner that you have. what works for one child will not work for another.
i will be switich my son to a different program, only because he is a grade 2 level math and this program plods along too much for him.. but, i will be buying this book again for my 4 year old next year as she does not grasp math concepts as quick. its a good book for little ones to really try and build and grasp math foundations.
one other thing i would consider is maybe using this book as a summer time book. i keep doing learning throughout the summer and this would be great as its pretty laid back and a great break from the more intesnse year. With a lot of other curriculum i do go back to previous lessons if a concept isnt understood well enough, i do not have to do this with these books, it works slow and repeditive enough that there are no repeat lessons necessary. which is great!
