How do you feel about math? Or better yet, how does your first grader feel about math? So far, first grade math (RightStart) has been going okay here. While math may not be our favorite subject to work on, but at least it’s been fun, and making a subject fun definitely makes it more interesting and helps your kids to learn it more quickly.

What makes RightStart Math special?
My favorite, and I’m going to guess my kids favorite thing would be that they are making math fun! The lessons book includes everything you need to for fun, learning with your kids, including what worksheet to out of the workbook, when to use the Yellow is the sun disc, when to play (which) game.
If you remember I shared all that you get in the RS2 Math Set that we got with our curriculum choices? it included everything we need to learn, and to learn hands on. To have fun with games in each lesson.
Math Level B is about continuing to build a strong foundation with number sense. If you haven’t used their program for math in the past, you can start it at any time, this is our first year using it, and my oldest is using Level D this year (review coming at a later date).
- RightStart Math does this through quantity recognition and mental math strategies by grouping in 5s and 10s.
