I used this math program for my second grade daughter I could tell the other workbooks we had used just didn't "click" and knew that she was probably behind for her age This was just what she needed! It was interesting enough to hold her attention plus repetitive enough for me to feel like she was understanding a concept while still making progress I also appreciate that they aren't labeled by grade level I'm looking forward to using the next book in the series

This new edition made just the right changes. There is more room for writing practice and more colorful illustrations. I like it even better than the old one!

The story going along with learning math is fantastic! It makes it much easier to get my son interested in learning. He has come so far already! I can't wait to keep going...

Good product
I really like this workbook. We have worked through a few weeks so far. My daughter (5yo) likes that the lessons are short and she likes the story and pictures that go along with it! So far, it's been somewhat of a review for her but that's not a bad thing. We actually have been doing a few days worth at a time since it is mostly a review. I am looking forward to getting into stuff my daughter does not know yet. I also have b/g twins I will use this with when they get older, hopefully they will like that the story is about twins!

Best Beginners Math Book We've Ever Used!
My just-turned 7 yr. old - who is barely reading - LOVES this math book! The storyline is engaging and breaks up the monotony of a regular math book. I didn't even know math books such as this one even existed. We are very satisfied with this purchase.

I chose this math book for my son because I've have friends that use it and they tell me their kids beg to do more work than assigned for the day. My son is bored with his other math curriculum and the story telling format mixed with worksheets and simple manipulatives seems like a good fit for us.

Charlotte Mason approach to math.
Casandra B on Aug 25, 2017
I approve of this math course as it teaches in the Charlotte Mason method of education. It connects mathematics to real life situations which in turn helps children to see math as a part of their everyday life not an isolated subject that they can't fathom why they need to learn this or how is this brain draining work going to help me. It makes math enjoyable not a subject to dread.

Jamie L on Sep 21, 2016
This curriculum is truly a gift. It teaches everyday, functional math using a fun storyline. My daughter now LOVES doing math every day. And I love that everything is included in one book...there is no flipping back and forth between a teacher's guide and a student book. The week's worksheets are included after each story/lesson so it does not require you to use an additional notebook. And the price is very affordable!!

I love the Charlotte Mason method for math. My daughter attends a charter school, but I use this during vacations to supplement. She loves it!
Amanda D on Aug 13, 2016
My son is so hand's on, so I thought he would really love hands on math, but he gets frustrated as he wants to build & be inventive with the manipulatives. However, when he is in "learning" mode, he simply soaks up stories and being read to. He also really likes every day math, so it dawned on me that he should have story based math. I think using our hands-on program in conjunction with story-based math will be just the key for him. I'm going to see if he does better with this or Life of Fred.

Michelle E on Oct 2, 2017
Can this be used alone or will I need to supplement?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It really depends on the student. We love the series because it incorporates family values, Christianity, and social studies to show how math is used in everyone's daily life. The book covers math concepts well but if a child needs extra practice you may need to supplement. An example would be with time, money or addition, if they need extra review it would be easy to supplement. The books do a great job of reviewing mastered concepts in future lessons.
How long does a lesson take each day? Can i do a longer lesson once a week and just guide them through some practice the rest of the week?

Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 2
BEST ANSWER: It's been awhile so my memory might not be 100% accurate but from what I recall the book is divided into 36 "lessons". Each lesson is divided into 5 days - so 1 lesson per week. Day 1 has a story to go along with the lesson so it might be 2/3 minutes longer than the other days - but I'd say on average you could do each days work in 10-20 minutes depending on how in depth you want to go and on how easily the child picks up the material (also depending on what it is - some concepts might require more teaching than others). You could certainly do more than 1 days worth on one day a week and then do less on the other days if you wanted to.
Is this secular?
A shopper on May 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are a few references to God in this book. When learning to count by 2's they learn the story of Noah's Ark. There is a reference to God using patterns in nature and also one about God being the "Alpha and Omega". Other than those few, small references, there is not any other Christian comments in this book.
I just need to know if this book has religious content? I want this series regardless but I need the information.

BEST ANSWER: This series is an ongoing story of a Christian family. It does not focus on religion. For example, in one lesson that is teaching about money, the children are saving money to send to orphans in another country. There is not a lot of religious content. We have only done Book 1 and 2. We really enjoy the short lessons that teach math as it applies to everyday life!
Are the worksheets reproducible?
