We used Saxon Math K Home Study Kit with my son when he was 4 It was a gentle and fun introduction to math the kind of thing I wish I'd had when I was a kid! The lessons are completely scripted and little teacher prep is required There's no writing involved However you will want to get the manipulatives kit to go with this (you will use it through the 3rd grade if you continue on with Saxon Math so it's a good investment) My son used to ask to play with the manipulatives even in between lessons We're using the Well-Trained Mind which suggests you don't really need a kindergarten math program but we don't regret starting out with Math K just the same It was pure fun and a great way to get off on the right foot with math

Saxon Math K is by far my FAVORITE math program out there (after homeschooling 7 kids I have tried a lot) For the parent it is well organized- it even scripted the lesson for you if you are "instructionally challenged" like me It directs you where to go and what to use- taking all of the guesswork out of using the curriculum!! For the child it is hands on (which is one of its biggest selling points to me) thouroughly engaging and so much fun ~ I don't even think the children realize they are "learning" My 2 youngest are using it now and they beg me to do math work with them everyday!! Another point my 2 youngest are special needs learners which makes choosing a curriculum a bit more tricky at times This curriculum is well-suited to a special needs child It provides extra repetition and predictibility for them- something I know my special needs kidlets thrive on Again the hands on and engaging style also make it perfect for them Overall I can't say enough about this curriculum but if you are searching this is a great one!!

Great program for a younger kindergartener
I am homeschooling my 9th child. This is our 20th year o homeschool. I had never used the Saxon K before; I had always used the Saxon 1 and did half of it in kindergarten and finished it in 1st grade. My daughter is a young kindergartener and she has thrived with it. Such fun and a great introduction to math for young ones.

I purchased this curriculum and the required manipulatives for my daughters kindergarten year She was 5-6 years old This program was incredibly easy to use If you are new to homeschooling or just prefer a curriculum that holds your hand a little you will enjoy the instructors guide with scripted lessons for you the instructor My daughter loved using the manipulatives especially the teddy bear counters and the Judy clock There was occasionally some prep work required but it was often very simple and of little or no cost Most lessons I was able to "open and go" which came in very handy as we were schooling with a newborn The program was also very flexible Allowing us to skip ahead or do the lessons out of order My only word of caution is that we found the K level to be easier than we expected My five year old had finished the book by January of her K year If I had it to do over again I would definitely buy Saxon but maybe begin Kindergarten using the 1st grade book I would recommend this program to other homeschoolers and we plan to use it again with our younger children

I LOVE this program! I can't say enough about how well this has worked for our family! First of all learning the calendar is part of the lessons I know that this is something I would never get to if it wasn't built in like that I also like how the assessments are built in and the scripted lessons are very nice for a mom who is not strong in math! I feel very confident teaching Saxon math I think the use of manipulatives is helpful at this level as well to make the information more concrete Over the course of a year we have learned many useful math games Almost every lesson my daughter thought we were just playing when in reality she was learning all along Saxon fits with my philosophy that children are always learning and hands-on learning is best while they are young

I recently finished Saxon K with my daughter who just turned 5 I bought the full kit including manipulatives In general I am pleased with the program although there are a few things that I would change if I could The teachers manual is well done and easy to use The occasional prep is not that time consuming The calender concepts are extremely important for this age and I liked them so well that I have adapted that lesson to do every morning with our weather report My daughter likes calender time too and added a writing component on her own so that she writes the day and date each day The material was simple and the presentation somewhat slow for a child who already knew a fair amount It took my daughter about 4 1/2 months to finish all of the material I adapted many lessons to combine concepts when she expressed frustration with the amount of repetition or the fact that she thought some lessons quit just as they were getting interesting For example there are teddy bear stories that are essentially +/- problems My daughter insisted that we needed to write the equations to go with the stories For me adapting was not a real issue I saw the lessons as a great starting point and if she wanted to write equations or do every single tanagram puzzle in one sitting that was fine with me My main difficulty with the program is that it is tied heavily to a traditional school year and pace The lessons are titled along the lines of First lesson in October so some of the lessons in the book are tied to seasons and the calender workbook assumes you will complete the material at the pace described in the teachers manual I had trouble adapting the workbook for our more rapid pace and quit using it about a month after we started For a homeschool text I would prefer lessons that aren't tied to a traditional scheduleDespite my dislike of the prescribed pacing I am buying the Saxon 1 kit The Saxon K lessons were extremely well done and introduced many ideas that I wouldn't necessarily have thought of if I was just making this up on my own (I have a graduate degree in math so I'm not easy to please when it comes to good lessons)

Saxon simplifies!
We have not sped through the curriculum, but I love how small and incremental each lesson proves to be. I have only used Saxon since 3rd level with my older kids, but decided to start here with my pre-k student. I love that it builds in time to play with the manipulatives so when they are actually used, kids are familiar with them. It is scripted well and allows you to develop a great routine so students know what to expect. My only struggle with it is the calendar/daily meeting starts in September. I was going to start in August and then my student got so excited to start, we began in April so I am starting at lesson 1 and just changing the months and not going in the order of the meeting workbook, which is fine. Just a little tweaking that takes my time. You know with Saxon you will cover all the basics with continuous review so my bent to a more classical model of education is satisfied.

Love that it gives you the dialogue!
My son and I have just started using this curriculum. We are currently on lesson 14 and it's been great so far! I love that it gives you exactly what to say during the lesson. I was nervous about how to teach math concepts but now that I have done a few lessons I feel more comfortable going "off script" if I need to. Some of the lessons were VERY basic and sort of repetitive at the beginning so I skipped a few. Overall, I'm very happy and I will continue to use Saxon math for years to come!

We have been using Saxon K this year and have enjoyed it My 45 year old daugther has had fun with the short to-the-point lessons The easy to use teacher's manual contains the lessons so you must have it There is little teacher prep required and any supplies needed are outlined at the beginning of the lesson There are a few days requiring the teacher to cut out shapes in a variety of colors - that has been the most time consuming prep so far I did buy the full package of manipulatives (K-3 complete kit w/optional items the wooden blocks and Judy clock) which are lots fun to use They are definitely worth the investment especially if you use them for 4 years (K-3) and mulitiple children I had read that the program was a little slow and that's true We have modified the timing to move it along a little faster They recommend 3 lessons/week and we are doing 5 lessons/week Since the calendar work is stressed I had to modify the meeting book and scripted lessons slightly as well to work with our schedule Overall I can see the groundwork being laid for my daugther's mathmatical learning Having the spiral lessons already planned out saves me time and worry I know that she is learning what she needs to learn with very little effort on my part That to me makes this program worth its price I can then spend more time planning our unit studies involving our other subjects We will finish Saxon K's 112 lessons in about 5 months and I plan to move on to Saxon 1 in January

I tried many other math programs with my older two children. Once I finally switched to Saxon, our math troubles slowly began to fade away. The spiral approach may seem repetitive but really works to set a solid foundation. Now that my youngest is joining our school, I have decided to start her with Saxon!

What manipulation kit should I buy? I am planning to use Saxon math at least through the 3rd grade.
A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The K-3 manipulatives kit options are found here - http://www.rainbowresource.com/prodlist.php?subject=Mathematics/10&category=Complete+%28K-3%29+Manipulative+Kits/2085

A chart showing which manipulatives are used with each grade is found here - http://www.rainbowresource.com/manipulatives.php?sid=150a2fe95c62497bfd2267c9

I usually say to just get the basic kit - #MPC000 - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=MPC000
Is Saxon K math aligned with common core?
A shopper on Feb 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, Saxon K is not aligned with Common Core. They use a ton of manipulatives to help the children learn key concepts. We used many different math curricula and found Saxon to be the best for us!

    I chose this math program because it was highly recommended in 'The Well-Trained Mind' and I hope my 4-year-old enjoys it.
    I purchased this program specifically from Rainbow Resource Center because the price was just unbeatable.
    Thanks!

    I’ve used Saxon before, but never the kindergarten kit. My now-kindergartener is speeding through the materials I chose so far, so I decided to give this a try. I think she’ll really enjoy it. She likes more structured lessons.

    What manipulation kit should I buy? I am planning to use Saxon math at least through the 3rd grade.
    A shopper on Mar 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The K-3 manipulatives kit options are found here - http://www.rainbowresource.com/prodlist.php?subject=Mathematics/10&category=Complete+%28K-3%29+Manipulative+Kits/2085

    A chart showing which manipulatives are used with each grade is found here - http://www.rainbowresource.com/manipulatives.php?sid=150a2fe95c62497bfd2267c9

    I usually say to just get the basic kit - #MPC000 - http://www.rainbowresource.com/proddtl.php?id=MPC000
    Is Saxon K math aligned with common core?
    A shopper on Feb 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: No, Saxon K is not aligned with Common Core. They use a ton of manipulatives to help the children learn key concepts. We used many different math curricula and found Saxon to be the best for us!
