Awesome!
The Saxon math program is very detailed and really easy to teach. Our Daughter is doing "A" work with this. As it's our 1st year of home schooling, she is now mastering this, while in the public school system....not so much! Try it and see if you love it as we do!

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 repetitiveness
I 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.

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.

Saxon Math
I'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 hasnÔŅĹt made curriculum in other subjects

We have used Saxon levels K-2; 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 hands-on 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

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

What is included in this kit?
A shopper on Oct 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You get the teacher's manual; fact cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division; student worksheets and tests (in two booklets); and master pages for selected lessons. The master pages are needed to complete some of the lessons. There are also also pages for checklists and logs to keep track of the student's progress.
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 re-taught in Math 2 or would we be better off to go with Math 1? Thanks for your input!
A shopper on Aug 7, 2016
BEST 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.

    Remedial math instruction for struggling older student, plus for my second grader. I've heard Saxon has a LOT of practice of skills taught. Plus, I saw the lessons in the teacher's manual are scripted. I LOVE that. I'm not a math person.

    I love Saxon math! My favorite high school math teacher found out my students had been raised with Saxon math, and she was relieved. She said that they will have the best math foundation using Saxon math.

    I am a part of Classical Conversations and many families use it and recommended the Saxon material. We did Saxon 1 and loved the clear directions for mom and good steady-paced material for my daughter.

    I've used it with my other children and have gotten great results.

    I'm hoping this curriculum will make math more fun for my 2nd grader and based on my research I feel confident that Saxon will make sure we cover all the bases as I want him to have a great foundation in math.

    I have been pleased with Saxon math up to this point and we are ready to move to second grade level.

    My daughter went through the first grade Saxon book very quickly and now in January of her "first grade" year she is onto the 2nd grade level. We love the repetition and review to make sure that concepts are learned. We were able to skip ahead in places when she was ready for new material.

    What is included in this kit?

    BEST ANSWER: You get the teacher's manual; fact cards for addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division; student worksheets and tests (in two booklets); and master pages for selected lessons. The master pages are needed to complete some of the lessons. There are also also pages for checklists and logs to keep track of the student's progress.
    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 re-taught in Math 2 or would we be better off to go with Math 1? Thanks for your input!

    BEST 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.
