I am convinced that Saxon Math is the best math curriculum on the market. Math 1 starts from the very beginning and moves along at a good pace--not too fast, not too slow. The daily review and math facts really help to cement the knowledge in their heads. I did a very informal Kindergarten approach with my son before starting Saxon in grade 1 and it was a perfect fit, but if you have done more with your child in grade K, you may want to skip some lessons to find a good fit. I also feel that the grade 1 set may be useful to begin in grade K and work through it slowly through first grade too. You can provide more practice with "playing store" and all the fun math manuipulatives exercises that get my kids excited about learning! I feel that lots of review is better than racing through material and assuming the child has learned it well. I also use Saxon for an older child and love it as well.

I was recomended to use this math curriculum from my homeschool group Classical Conversations. I am really glad I took their recomendation and purchased Saxon math. I have a 5 year old son soon to be 6 who is loving it. Last year he did not enjoy math , but this year asked to do math.
I am a mother who never has enjoyed math and was never good at it in school. I believe it is because I did not get the foundation of a good math base early on. By using Saxon math 1 with my son he is getting that foundation. Also not being the math person Saxon makes it super easy to teach. Everything is "spelled out" for you in the teachers book.
The only complant which is not really one is that it Is a little slow. Since there is a lot of review it tends to teach the same concepts for a really long time. When I was a child that is exactly what I would have needed, but my son who is above his grade level in just about everything flies through his math work. Maybe that is why he says he he loves it.
Each day you start out with a "circle time" where you go over the Calender, weather, number for school days, and counting. Since my son already knows how to read, count numbers and all about calendars (month, day, year etc.) I have him do this part on his own while I get the rest of our school day ready, tend to my infant or get my self ready for the day. That extra 5 min. Or so of my son working on own is great. After that you go over the new math concept for the day by using Manipulatives and other mean (all scripted in the teacher book) then you have a front and back worksheet for your child to do that goes along with what you just taught them, I normally only teach him the part he does not know, but I make him do all the worksheet for a good review and to see how well he really knows stuff.

This is perfect! This kit comes with the Teachers Manual, Student Workbooks Part 1 and 2, Fact Card set, and the Meeting Book. The quality of the lessons is great and the level of repetition is perfect for kids who are beginning to add and subtract, tell time, and count money. We are very please!

I ordered the Saxon Math 1 kit for my 5 year old son because I had read that Saxon was the best math program for homeschoolers. At first my son was very excited, but that quickly wore out. We reached a point with this program where my son refused to cooperate and I would end up losing my patience and my cool. Here are some of the complaints we have about this program. First of all, each lesson begins with practice in counting, left and right, checking the weather, looking at the date, etc. This aspect of the lesson alone would take about 30 minutes if we did everything the lesson called for. Eventually, I realized my son knows this stuff, so I cut most of it out of our daily routine. I should also add that we found the Meeting Book to be worthless and never used it. Each lesson also consists of practicing with flash cards and doing a practice fact sheet. There's another 30 minutes! My son would not cooperate at all and I didn't know if it was because he was completely bored or if he didn't know the answers. Eventually I checked out the fun "Hooked on Math" program from our library, which reviews math facts, and he rattles of the answers like a pro. It turns out he knew them all along and was bored with the somewhat massive amounts of practice we did every day. The lessons themselves were usually fun for my son, but most of them were too easy, even for a five year old. The entire lesson was scripted, which was helpful sometimes, but most of the time I didn't even look at the scripts. By the way, we did not buy the Manipulatives Kit, but we used legos, real-looking play money, a toy clock, etc. and we got along just fine. My son hated the worksheets. Again, way too much review. Sometimes the worksheets did not have a single problem from that day's lesson.Read more ›

This is the best math program I've ever used. I'm a former school teacher and have used several math programs. Nothing has been as simple for children to learn and I'm now using it with my own child. There is so much review, which can sometimes seem monotonous to adults, but for children, it's exactly what they need. The concepts are presented in the most simplistic format, one small piece at a time. They are able to achieve mastery with one task before they move on to the next new concept. This does so much for their self-esteem and, I believe, builds in children a confidence in their math abilities that can last a lifetime. Some criticize Saxon for so much daily review, that their children become bored, but the truth is, you can always move faster through the program for children who are able. I plan to use Saxon math all the way through with my child.
