I've used this series with my older two girls, and look forward to using it again this fall with my son. It's inexpensive, which is a definite plus with four children. Also, it introduces the four basic arithmetic processes - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - right from the start. It also offers helpful insight of how to do math in a different way than how I was taught, which sometimes helps my kids understand it better. Using the Cuisenaire rods helped my kids understand the concepts and they loved having something to manipulate. They loved the fun pages included in these too. I highly recommend this series. The lab annotations doesn't have answers to every sheet; most of them are included- the ones left out are easy enough for the parents. Also there is great information in it on presenting different concepts like the difference between 3x4 and 4x3. An inexpensive teacher's manual is a plus too! You need usually two workbooks a year, so you don't need to purchase it all at once. Also, if you decide to start using and your child isn't in first grade, it's a good idea to start from the first book. I did with my 4th grader and she just worked through the books quicker, but it wasn't too babyish for her and introduced things she hadn't covered.

I cannot recommend this program highly enough! I have used it for 7 years with many students. We all look forward to math time every day. It truly teaches math concepts instead of memorization or drill, and does it in a fun, laboratory setting. Students learn that there are more than one way to write a problem and get an answer. The cuisenaire rods are easy to use to learn the basic functions plus fractions and other math concepts. I often tell my students they are learning high school math because it introduces geometry and algebraic concepts in a way that grade school kids understand. My 7th grader who started with Miquon in 1st grade has the ability to problem solve, think outside the box and solve math mentally because of the foundation Miquon gave him. It is a little intimidating to teach at first because each lesson is not laid out for you, but if you use Lab Annotations and First Grade Diary to learn along with your children, it is a fun experience for everyone. You don't have to do each page a certain way in order to be successful (a great problem solving skill for moms to learn).

We didn't finish the orange and red books in first grade. We went pretty slowly to keep things fun and interesting. I should have done more of the enrichment suggestions in the annotations manual, but overall, we had a good year. This program is great if you think outside the box and don't feel the need to slavishly stick to a school curriculum timeline/ scope sequence chart. For 2nd grade I plan to use more manipulatives and use these worksheets as a supplement to other activity-based learning.
