I am not so sure if whatever I will be saying won't sound so repetitive. And I am already apologizing to you for that, but I just have no better way to describe or say it without truly express my deep love for this curriculum.
My youngest child in our homeschool just turned 4, and one of the greatest and most beautiful things about homeschooling is that the child is the one leading and setting how the learning process goes. With my 2 oldest children, they were very close in age, and I was far younger and in a different stage of life. Most of our days were spent on the floor playing with blocks, books, and puzzles. They loved it and the little time they were allowed to watch something on the screen, most of the times I was beside then, making sure the watching was interactive and they could ask questions or learn how to say the same words in English/Portuguese or any other language they were into.
The gap between my 2 older ones and my youngest child is almost 5 years, and not only everything has changed in our household routines, but she also has a fierce and fiery personality, lol. Don't get me wrong, she is the sweetest and most caring little one you can ever meet, but she knows what she wants and how to make sure her needs and voice are heard.
At 4, my two oldest children were already reading and doing a grade above math. My little one knows her numbers and letters well. But she will fight and isn't happy about sitting down and doing any formal work. She is very smart and creative, so she will in a matter of minutes drive you nuts if you try to constrict her, haha.
I have been searching for a good way to help her master her basics math skills, and when I was presented with the opportunity to review the Math Skill Sharpeners, by Evan-Moor, I couldn't be more excited.
|Math Skill Sharpener - Grade K|
I was introduced to this curriculum about 4 years ago while searching for material to help my son relearn his write and reading skills! I just loved it and so did he!!! We had so much fun, and it didn't feel so painful or sad the fact that we were back at doing Grade K level.
Math Skill Sharpener has just confirmed the reason why I fell in love with this curriculum!!!!
My daughter is so excited about sitting and doing her school work, and she will even push further and do extra pages. We are not hustling around mastering numbers and math skills anymore, Hurray!!!!!
