Well, I have finally settled on a math program for this coming year. After a lot of research and discussion with my hubby, I decided to switch to RightStart Mathematics.
It was so hard deciding to switch from Saxon. For one, I HAVE all the supplies I would have needed for this year, and two, I have been using it for a few years, and actually went through it myself when I was home-schooled, so I am pretty comfortable with it. However, I think that it is time to move on. It just isn’t working for my children. And honestly, the thought of having 3 children using levels K, 1 and 2, this coming year is TOTALLY overwhelming. This past year I could easily spend 2+ hours on Math with just my oldest son, and he started hating math. I think the concept based approach that Right Start uses will be much more appealing to him, than the repetition based approach of Saxon.
I can’t wait for my order to arrive! We’ll see how it goes!
