A wonderful, engaging math program!
I've been home educating almost 20 years, and have noticed that I am naturally letting go of traditional textbook curriculum and gravitating toward a more natural, Charlotte-mason approach. My 7 year-old-daughter was doing fine with her math workbook, but I decided to try the Math Lessons books "just for fun." She is loving it, and so am I. My daughter calls her math "Charlie and Charlotte" (the names of the kids in the story) and we are enjoying sitting together reading the stories and doing the activities. From my perspective, she is learning as much or more than she did with traditional programs, but having much more fun. This is not a program that kids can use independently, but it is worth a few minutes of your time to sit down with your child. After all these years of homeschooling 9 kids, I am learning that the process is just as important as the end result, and making schooling more engaging and relationship-driven is worth the effort.

We have tried a few of the popular Math curricula with my 2nd grade daughter the standard textbook approach has been too overwhelming for her She could never get a grasp on it and would be stressed out She reads very well has no problems in any other subject so I recently bought Math Lessons book 2 It has been wonderful! My daughter now asks to do her math lesson! This is a much slower approach but the series as a whole (when finished in its entirety) will be a complete program There is very little prep and the stories are cute Math Lessons for a Living Education is based on the Charlotte Mason philosophy which we love I plan to stay with this curriculum as long as they keep writing the series until we are ready to switch to Life of Fred: Fractions

So pleased
I love that everything I need is in one book. I am drawn to simple math curriculums that don't need extra books and where I can supply different manipulative myself. The stories are great and I like that it isn't so repetitive.

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.

Casandra B on Aug 25, 2017
i chose this math program because it follows the Charlotte Mason method of education. It connects math to real life situations. Math is not an isolated subject. It is a part of every day life and children need to learn to think mathematically throughout their day.

Lori L on Apr 11, 2017
It covers the basic concepts in an easy-to-understand format. My son can open it up and read it and do the lesson on his own, it's not very often that he needs my help. The answer key is in the back of the book so there is no separate guide to purchase. We have mastered tally marks and time telling this year! Not to mention basic addition and subtraction! I'm looking forward to another fun year of math with Level 2!

Melissa W on Jan 7, 2017
We tried this series after several different Math programs for my struggling learner. She loves the story of the twins and wants to see what happens next.. The story really hooks her into the text, and she tolerates the math. We have less tears and more learning now.

This is our favorite math curriculum! It brings a biblical worldview to math, which is hard to find.
Sumer E on Sep 26, 2016
We follow a Charlotte Mason approach in our homeschooling, and this is a perfect fit to bring math to life. O'Dell's story line, and real life math every day, is what draws me to this type of learning. Kids need to see how math works outside of drills and tests.

Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 1
Math Lessons for a Living Education Level 1
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.
My daughter was in regular school for kindergarten. I know technically she would be on book 2 but is this a series where you need to start with book 1 to grasp the concepts?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If she is solid with the math that's covered in book 1, she'll be fine. The only thing she would miss is the storyline. The two main characters are brother and sister, their family introduces them to math in real world situations, and they refer to previous situations from the first book. As long as she wouldn't get caught up on that, it's a great book.
I just need to know if this book has religious content? I want this series regardless but I need the information.

Math Lessons for a Living Education: Book 3 (with answer key)
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!
