Not knowing what to buy for your beginning curriculum is a scary thing. When this product came I wasn't sure if it was what we wanted. We our now 1/3 through the year and we are loving it. The teacher book is a must. It is full of ideas for ways to teach it. I love how it brings the bible into the lessons.
I understand that I'm the teacher, but going from learning and writing numbers to 20 problems of 6 + 4 is ridiculous! My daughter is left frustrated and even in tears by the end of just one page. I was extremely disappointed in this curriculum. I could have invented a better one myself. I wish I'd gone with Saxon Math instead.
I have been homeschooling my child for the past year and a half with anything I could pick up at local stores. I was looking to start the kindergarten year with something that would cover a broader scope of materials and wasn't sure if I would be able to achieve that goal going the same route as I have been going. After discovering this product, I would highly recommend it to anyone just starting out with homeschooling or to veteran homeschoolers. This product is great!
