What an exciting year it has been! Our daughter was coming fresh out of kindergarten and forward into the 1st grade Her school uses Saxon 2 for 1st grade and I was extremely apprehensive about using a curriculum I had never used or heard of before Especially when we never even looked at Saxon 1 curriculum My fears and questions quickly vanished as soon as I received our Saxon 2 curriculum through Rainbow Resource Center The Teacher's manual had step by step instructions which is what I needed It was extremely easy to follow I never got lost in direction or instruction The confidence the Teacher's manual gave me transferred to our daughter Saxon 2 curriculum eased our daughter into Math The repetition of the subjects gave our daughter time to learn and assurance in her learning Where math was her weakest subject it is now one of her strongest Our daughter loves Saxon To our family there is no other product that could compare to the Saxon 2 curriculum It is absolutely the best curriculum for math out there Rainbow Resource Center gave us a very inexpensive product with great value compared to others The value was not only in he cost of the product but was present in the smile on my daughter's face everyday when we used Saxon 2 math Saxon makes learning math fun Thank you Rainbow Resource Center!

Perfect if your family likes the repetitivenessI used Saxon Math for my older son when he was in 5th and 6th grade. I liked it but decided to try something new for my smaller ones when they were in Kindergarten and First grade. It worked out ok but I wanted them to remember the concepts a little more so I bought Saxon 2 for them this year. So far it is perfect. I excelled in school in the classes that drilled it in what you were learning and now I'm watching my two Second graders excel in their mah. I'm loving math this year and so are they and math used to be their lease favorite subject. Was this review helpful? Yes (0) No (0)

Easy to use and my child enjoys it. Wish I had used it for my other kids.When we started homeschooling 9 years ago, I bought RightStart. I liked it, but it was very parentally demanding. I used it for my 2nd child, but found we only did it s couple times a week because I couldn't get 2 kids done a week. I now have 7 kids. I have used RughtStart, Math Mammoth, A+ Tutor Soft, and now Saxon. I find Saxon as thorough as RightStart but easier to use. And my daughter is learning the material and enjoying it. Lessons are a manageable length; advanced preparation is minimal. I have one child using intermediate 3, one using homeschool 2, and 2 using homeschool K. I am very happy with Saxon and wish I had started using it years ago. Was this review helpful? Yes (0) No (0)

Saxon MathI'm in my 5th year of homeschooling, and this is my third child using Saxon Math 2! We love Saxon Math for its simple design and straightforward way of teaching math. I like the way Saxon introduces a new topic and still drills previous lessons learned, helping students practice a concept until they've got it mastered. Excellent, straightforward math curriculum.

After using the Phonics I had to use the math Just like the Phonics program I was very pleased with this one also Very hands on which was a plus for my little guy My 5 year old likes to join in on some of the lessons too Saxon seems to have a way of making things very easy to understand For example I like the idea of using money to teach place value and addition Too bad Saxon hasnï¿½t made curriculum in other subjects Was this review helpful?

We have used Saxon levels K2; using Math 2 for 1st grade last year at the recommendation of a classical education company My daughter learned a great wealth of information and several math tricks to help her remember ways to solve problems She also learned good information about calendars graphing shapes skip counting measurement and temperature Saxon may be slower moving than other math programs in many ways (much slower in multiple digit addition and subtraction and place value) but the shape and number pattern exercises were much more challenging than other programs I've seen at this grade level For example Saxon would say something like "finish the pattern: 59 57 53 51 ___ ___ ___" and not tell you how The children just have to read the numbers and find the pattern Another program similar to Saxon would say "Fill in the missing numbers by counting by 3's: 3 6 9 ___ ___ ___ ___" So with patterns there is a bit more brainwork required from the studentThe program is very easy to use; very little preparation time required The first page of each lesson tells you what to prepare the night before or in the morning and the materials you'll need The teacher's manual is absolutely necessary and the scripted lessons are a big time saver especially if you are a new teacher or if you lack confidence in your ability to say the right words during your lessons With Saxon the Meeting (done at the beginning of each lesson) is a good time for multiple ages (aka younger siblings) to listen in on as they can pick up on some good information dealing with calendar graphs weather etcand the Meeting is easy to modify to use with different ages The second part of the lesson was easier for me to do just with my 1st grader alone Saxon is great for handson learners who like to move slowly in learning new things It is extremely repetitive which can be both a blessing and a curse This math program will not allow you to forget anything From one year to the next there are a lot of lessons that slowly review what was learned the previous year Some children love that repetition and others say "I already know that! Why do I have to do this again?" So for a child who is quick at math I would say this program might be frustrating in some ways; however if the teacher can speed up the pace a bit and skip some of the busy work it is a very thorough math curriculum which provides a solid foundation in math The expense of the product is worth the cost if you value having your lessons planned and scripted for you especially if you plan to use it with several children If you do not like reading from a script when doing your schooling a different math curriculum (such as Horizons) would probably be a better value for you Was this review helpful?

As a former "mathphobic" I was extremely apprehensive about teaching my children mathematics I knew how I dreaded this subject in school and did not wish for my children to have the same experience Then I found Saxon Math and after using it for several years I can say I am very pleased with this curriculum My oldest is in the sixth grade and never has struggled with math in the way I did My second grader loves math also Saxon takes tricky topics such as borrowing and carrying and finds sensible ways to explain the process so that it all logically makes sense When a student sees the logic behind a process it is easy for them to remember the steps Even all those "Math Facts" (basic math) are organized and presented so the mathematical patterns are obvious The teacher's manuals tell you exactly what to say and "Voila!" you've explained a difficult concept with no tears and confusion In the lower grades 13 there may be a little prelesson preparation (typically involving common manipulatives money or household objects) but after grade three most of the time my daughter could simply read the explanations from the lesson and figure out what to do from there When she does approach me with a question I can easily figure out the process from the lesson Saxon Math is a great value since a student has a firm grasp on the basics before needing to apply them to more complex problems Was this review helpful?

I have used both Saxon 2 and 3 with my two sons and love it The teacher's role is clearly defined for each lesson You simple say what the book tells you to say If you look at the next day's lesson all planning is clearly defined so your child is not left hanging as you gather the required materials for the lesson Having used this program with two completely different learning styles I can honestly say it works for the advanced learner and the kinesthetic learner If a lesson was something my child had already mastered I simply skipped it and moved on I also individualized the Daily Meetings to their own needs If counting by 2's 5's and 10's was too easy I would let them count by two numbers they were comfortable with then add in a new count By the end of the year we were only doing multiplication counts as they both mastered telling time and the calendar We did however continue the Meeting Sheet all the way through to the end of the year The book is simply a guide and you have the ability to change it around to best meet the needs of your child One bonus of using this with two children close in age  my youngest is very familiar now with the 3rd Grade work as he was exposed to it daily last year I love this program and will continue to use it with the boys Was this review helpful?

I used Saxon Math K with my older daughter and while it was wellorganized and easy to use by the end of the year she and I were both bored utterly stiff with it The rate of introduction of new concepts is glacial and the amount of repetition can be stultifying for a precocious student We have since begun using Harcourt Math instead and she is doing very well with that although we still find that it belabors relatively simple new concepts a bit at times The way it is structured makes it much easier to condense or skip materials than Saxon's arrangement doesMy younger daughter in contrast has some learning delays and issues and Harcourt Math is not working for her I am planning to go back to Saxon for her The slow rate of introduction of new material and the repetition are just the approach she needs This is what homeschooling is all about: fitting the curriculum to the child Was this review helpful?

So far so goodI haven't had the opportunity to really dig into the teacher's manual yet, but so far so good. The manipulative kit is good, except the thermometer is not very good quality and not exactly child friendly, as it broke shortly after it was accidentally dropped by one of my children. The other parts of the manipulative kits seem durable enough though. Was this review helpful? Yes (0) No (0)

Vote for the best answer above!My daughter just turned 7 and we are switching to Saxon math. She did Horizon's K last year because Horizon's 1 was overwhelming and frustrating her. We did the placement test and she was placed easily in Saxon 2. However, she has not memorized any math facts as of yet and she still struggles with time and money. I am wondering if Math 1 would be a better fit but a lot of the concepts listed she has already mastered. Will the things she has not learned/mastered be retaught in Math 2 or would we be better off to go with Math 1? Thanks for your input!A shopper on Aug 7, 2016BEST ANSWER: My 6 year old is going to do Saxon 2 this year. I gave him Saxon Math 1 during kindergarten. As there is a page of math facts to do everyday, there is no need to have them memorized at that point. Saxon Math 1 focuses on time to the hour and half hour only and we practice everyday as well. For Money, they go through pennies, dimes, nickels and briefly quarters. Both of these concepts are repeated everyday throughout the year, so they will master by the end of the year. Math 1 is a great starting math curriculum, and my 5 year did great with it, but that was only because he did kinder math in preK. Saxon Math tests every 5 lessons, so you could just do the tests until you feel she needs to start doing lessons. I did that with my 3rd grader because he knew a lot already as well, and we ended up starting on lesson 65 for Math 3, then just went straight on to math 4. That's the beauty of homeschooling. Good luck. Reply

I think your daughter will be fine with Saxon 2. They will teach her all the math facts very gradually. The clocks and money lessons are the same way. There is also a ton of repetition, so she'll continue to practice everything she learns as she continues. I think Math 1 would just be too easy for her. It's much easier to modify a curriculum for a child that is struggling or needs more time on a concept than to try to make an easy curriculum more challenging. Reply

We just finished Saxon 2 this past year with my 7 year old. I feel like Saxon is really good about hitting the basics again at the beginning and easing into the concepts. My 7 year old is still not great with his math facts, and we ended up skipping the fact pages for awhile and just doing flashcards and games on the computer to help him out in this area. We will be moving onto Saxon 3 this next year. Hope this helps! Reply

My 3 children went from no math (2 day a week kindergarten, obviously not rigorous) to Saxon 2 in first grade with no problems. I have no experience with Saxon 1. Because my third child could not read yet, he could not do any of the work for the first part of the school year independently (unlike my first 2 daughters who did much independently), but with the math they all did great.

I think she would be ok with Saxon 2 because at the beginning of each year they do repeat the math facts, and time and money is taught well and cycled through the year. We have found if you follow the detailed instructions, the children get the concepts, and they are extended throughout the year  done incrementally. Reply

Saxon 2 does review math facts, but a solid understanding of them would be helpful, in my opinion. Personally, I would do Saxon 1 and skip the lessons (or speed through) she is already strong at. Reply

If the placement test placed her in Saxon 2 then that's what I would choose. There is a lot of review at the beginning of Saxon 2 and she'll have plenty of time to master those math facts. Reply

I haven't used math 1 but I know math 2 does a lot of fact memorization, coin counting and time. Reply
