A Skills-Based Elementary MATH Curriculum Recommended for: Grade 1. Suitable for ages 5 to 7.

Have you ever noticed that we tend to compartmentalize when teaching our children? In real life, there aren’t artificial barriers between “subjects”. For example, when you are cooking or baking, you have to use the skills of reading, logical thinking, and measuring, just to name a few. In driving a car, you see and read road signs, read maps, and count miles. It has become quite clear that there is an abundance of math curriculums available that are nothing but monotonous drill sheets dressed up in pretty colors. Pretty colors do not make a living book. Content, story, and the ability to show math in real life make a living math book. Math Level 1: Teaches math lessons through the creative means of a life story Provides a link for the downloadable answer key Has a scope and sequence that contains learning numbers 0 to 100, circles and patterns, counting and addition, days of the week, and telling time.

This book was written to be used by you and your young student together. It is the story of a twin brother and sister, Charlie and Charlotte, who are visiting their grandparents’ farm. They soon learn that the farm is full of learning opportunities! As you read their story, your students will be drawn into the adventure along with the twins. They will learn about numbers, shapes, place value, adding, and subtracting. They will also learn about gardening, baby animals on the farm, nature, and the love of family. They will hear exciting stories from Grandpa and Grandma, and they will be invited to join the twins on their living math adventures. We hope you have a grand time on this adventure!

Not true to Charlotte’s methods, watered down and full of *twaddle* I bought this for my soon-to-be 6 year old daughter to use in kindergarten. While we are waiting until first grade for more formal studies, she really wants to do math. In an attempt to support her and not hold her back, I bought this workbook in addition to Simply Charlotte Mason’s “Mathematics: An Instrument for Living Education” set and “Elementary Arithmetic Series 1”. Until I watched and read the DVD and Book, I thought This workbook was very *Charlotte Mason-y*. Not so. In fact, it’s very…

This is a wonderful book. My daughter is so engaged in it … This is a wonderful book. My daughter is so engaged in it after having really struggled to get her to connect to any of the math materials we have tried so far. The negative reviews don’t seem to understand the Charlotte Mason philosophy. If you are looking for a very challenging rigorous program this isn’t for you. If you are looking for a math book in the Charlotte Mason homeschool philosophy, this is the best we have seen so far. Its perfect short lessons for the short attention span of…

Lucky find for homeschooling! LOVE this math book. My 5 year old daughter is homeschooled, and she asks to do math. Could you ask for anything more as a parent? Furthermore, it’s not just a workbook, but is guided activity through stories about two siblings visiting their grandparent’s farm. We’re flying through this book, and I’m looking forward to getting the next one.
