Last fall I used the Saxon K program with my 5 year old and then we started the Saxon 1 program mid-January My daughter is almost done as I write this � she has 15 lessons left We had a very positive experience with the K program but I am less satisfied with the first grade program First I�ll mention the positives The teacher�s manual is very well designed It�s easy to understand and the program doesn�t require a lot of preparation unless you need to modify the curriculum The material is comprehensive so I didn�t feel like I was missing important topics and the lessons include many clever and fun ideas for introducing new topics For example Saxon uses a grocery shopping game for addition practice that my daughter absolutely loves However the slow pacing and intensive drill-based nature of this program turned out to be a poor match for my mathematical daughter She remembers her math facts rapidly (a few repetitions) and sees patterns and relationships easily The Saxon approach does not mesh well with either of these traits Saxon includes a great deal of repetitive daily drill Every lesson includes calendar time weather counting a number pattern telling time counting coins right and left practice and fact flash cards For a child who learns facts with a few repetitions this can be pure drudgery For example the coin counting is still counting pennies and dimes at lesson 99 I changed the daily coin counting practice to a weekly �how many different ways can you make 31�� problem less than a month into the program In general I cut back on the amount of drill-based practice in favor of more emphasis on weather science occasional questions that use the drill concepts and practicing right and left which is still a challenge The spiral approach to instruction hasn�t worked so well either I probably should have realized this after working through the Kindergarten book We had a tendency to do every lesson related to a topic in one sitting Kindergarten wasn�t all that hard to adapt to this approach but the first grade material has been much harder to adapt in large part because the worksheets mirror the lesson order Presenting material out of order makes the workbook harder to use For example Saxon 1 covers fractions in lessons 67 88 107 and 112 When I introduced 1/2 in lesson 67 my daughter got out her brother�s fraction manipulatives By the time we were done playing with them we had discussed all of the topics covered in the later lessons which lead to complaints about the later fraction lessons (�You don�t need to tell me that again�) Also the workbook keeps repeating the same very simple problems for identifying 1/2 until fractions are discussed again in lesson 88 I needed to look though the book for all fraction-related material to make sure I didn�t miss anything critical but then I didn�t have any simple way to use the worksheets to reinforce the concepts I really need to switch to an approach that presents concepts such as basic fractions in a complete topic and then integrates those ideas into ongoing problem solving practice The bottom line is that I�m not sure this is the right program for a child who is really good a math I suspect that we need to switch to something that covers material in a more topic-oriented order and that has a stronger problem solving emphasis With that said I think this is an issue of learning style not one of program quality The lessons are well designed there are many hands on activities and the scripted nature of the teacher�s manual makes it easy to present For a child who likes material introduced in small pieces the spiral approach probably works really well For a child who likes to see the big picture all at once the spiral approach is extremely frustrating

This is such an awesome kit! I cannot believe how much my son has learned He picks new material up so quickly The lesson plans were easy to follow With a newborn I was a little worried about prep time but really there is very little that has to be done ahead of time While my son is working with his meeting book I'm getting all the supplies together We will be continuing to use the Saxon math program as we progress
February 12, 2008
Great for beginning math
I have homeschooled 9 children for 20 years. I love how the Saxon program prepares the kids for higher math. It REALLY teaches them their basic facts, and teaches in a very practical way. I do not use Saxon past 3rd grade.

We didn't use Kindergarten math I chose to just start here with Saxon Math 1 We would go through the lesson do front side of worksheet Then the next day go through the lesson and my daughter would do the backside of the worksheet on her own This math has given her a very grounded knowledge of her facts She is actually now on the same level as her brother 2 years older then her I LOVE HOW THEY TEACH FACTS! Even helped me
May 7, 2013
I would highly recommend Saxon Math 1 My daughter is a bright girl but this curriculum with its' reputation of being repetitive has not been boring for her at all Indeed there is a lot of repetition as you may have already heard but I enjoy it because it drills concepts in children's minds They're not simply learning a concept only to forget it as the year goes on but this is something they will remember forever Another positive aspect of Saxon is the way they introduce concepts I have used some other curricula that left the teaching up to me and I would rack my brain trying to think of the easiest way to teach the concept to my daughter only to become totally overwhelmed and end up confusing my daughter as well Not to mention I have two younger children and don't have as much time to plan lessons as others may The concepts in Saxon are wisely and so simply introduced in ways that are easy for me to explain (after all I'm simply reading a script) and the concept clicks with my daughter in a matter of seconds So yes the teacher's manual is a must and it is worth every penny! For those of you who do not like the repetition skip it For those of you who want a more quicker paced learning use the next level up Some people look into other math programs because they want a more colorful program but Saxon has the children coloring their lessons and my daughter has had a blast with that Overall I enjoy the peaceful and steady pace of Saxon and my daughter absolutely loves it as well The "repetition" in my opinion is a blessing not a flaw Children love stability and my daughter knows that every day when we begin our math she will start with the calendar and she can't wait Saxon has also helped her to master concepts before we've moved on which to me is great She has learned everything I hoped for her to learn and much much more BTW if you can afford it get the manipulative kits they were one of the highlights to the program for my daughter :)

Are you looking for a thorough meaty math program? Are you able to spend 20-30 minutes of one-on-one time each day with your student (Or do you have an older student that you could partner with your younger student to help at times)? As the mom of 7 very different children I can say that Saxon is an excellent choice but you can't expect to be able to just "have them do their workbook page for the day" all by themselves Saxon is very usable -- teachers manual is excellent telling you word for word what to say and do with your student It constantly reviews concepts and builds wonderfully from lesson to lesson and year to year Strong choice for learners that like hands-on adaptable for those learners that are past the concrete

Good
I am at lesson 8 and I love it. I like the way they teach each concept repeating it every day. It really works for a kid to get a good foundation as they start off with something like math.

I heard that Saxon Math was really intense and so I put it off for a while. I wish I had started it earlier. This Math 1 is okay but it gets better as you go along. I have a child in Math 1, Math 2 and Math 4/5. I love the structure. Don't be frustrated if it moves slow in the beginning.

My friend recommended the Saxon K-3 math program to me and I've not been disappointed! Last year (for kindergarten) my dd would CRY whenever the "other" math curriculum was brought out With Saxon she LOVES math She doesn't even realize she is "doing math" because she enjoys it so much She is a very hands on visual learner - this program is great for her I think it would be great for all types of learning stylesThe teacher's manual is wonderful Everything is very clear and easy to understand Virtually no prep work is requiredThe only thing I wish I would have known going in is to have the manipulatives on hand to begin the year Either order the Saxon Manipulatives kit or order things piece by piece of what you don't have in your house already Also yes you really *do* need The Meeting book It's a very important part of this programAll in all I give this set an A+ for delivering exactly what I needed!

Saxon's method of teaching is unique because the spiral review (revisiting concepts throughout the year), math fact drills, and and heavy use of manipulatives drive students toward mastery of concepts. I believe in it, so I will stick with it. It should be used alongside a curriculum that heavily uses a pictorial approach, i.e. , Singapore Math, however. I use both for a broader and more complete learning experience. Both are excellent programs!

Susana E on Jan 11, 2017
Does this include everything I will need to teach first grade math? What will I need to purchase extra when I teach it again to my next child?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, in order to do all of the activities and lessons in the Saxon books, you will also need the manipulative kit. The kit has all the 1-inch square blocks, scale, tangrams, geoboard, etc... that you will use in Saxon 1. You need that in addition to the teacher's book and student workbooks. You will either need to photocopy the student workbooks so you can reuse it with your next child or purchase another set of workbooks when you need them for your next student. (Personally I bought the manipulative kit that works for Saxon K-3, so I got all the items needed for all the math books through Saxon 3.)
what is the meeting book?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The meeting book is like your child's own personal calendar, only they learn how to fill in the date every day. At the beginning of each lesson in the teachers manual there is a section called "The Meeting" that teaches calendar, weather graph, and counting, and as you teach this section, your student follows along and uses the meeting book. Sometimes, if we've missed a few days, I still make my boys fill in the missing dates and we talk about those dates and what we might've done on those days, so they can see the progression of time.
i do not need meeting book can i buy it without the meeting book?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The kit is only available with the meeting book but you can purchase the teacher edition and the workbooks by themselves.

The kit has all the 1-inch square blocks, scale, tangrams, geoboard, etc... that you will use in Saxon 1. You need that in addition to the teacher's book and student workbooks. You will either need to photocopy the student workbooks so you can reuse it with your next child or purchase another set of workbooks when you need them for your next student. (Personally I bought the manipulative kit that works for Saxon K-3, so I got all the items needed for all the math books through Saxon 3.)
    what is the meeting book?
    A shopper on Apr 17, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The meeting book is like your child's own personal calendar, only they learn how to fill in the date every day. At the beginning of each lesson in the teachers manual there is a section called "The Meeting" that teaches calendar, weather graph, and counting, and as you teach this section, your student follows along and uses the meeting book. Sometimes, if we've missed a few days, I still make my boys fill in the missing dates and we talk about those dates and what we might've done on those days, so they can see the progression of time.

    BEST ANSWER: The kit is only available with the meeting book but you can purchase the teacher edition and the workbooks by themselves.
