Saxon Math kit
My daughter is enjoying math for the first time in a long time.

Awesomely Easy to Teach Curriculum
My first grader went from crying about math (in public school) to now being excited about Saxon Math (in our Homeschool). It's written in plain normal English, so it's easy for a non-mathematician to teach. Not once have I gone, "huh?" Saxon teaches the concepts behind math, not just memorization and steps. My son is so proud of himself now that he "gets it". Be aware that the teacher (mom or dad) does have to look ahead to gather supplies and occasionally set up extras for the lessons (like cutting shapes, writing on 3x5 cards, buying apples). Everyday is different, so it doesn't get boring. I highly suggest doing the Meeting Book, because those are repetitive daily activities necessary for daily life (like a calendar, clock, and left/right). When I was first deciding on what to buy I was eager to save money, but it was suggested to buy the entire kit along with the manipulatives (sold separately). Yes, the entire kit is necessary! I really believe if I wasn't teaching the entire math program the way it's meant to be used, my son would suffer for it. I've seen some negative comments about this program being too repetitive, but proficiency in math requires repetition. Practice really does make perfect and builds confidence. Saxon Math doesn't teach math any old way, but it understands brain development in children and HOW they learn. At first this kit appears to be expensive ...But... it's well worth the price. The cost is put into the curriculum itself, instead of wasting it on fancy paper, hardbacks, or pretty colorful pictures. We also have Saxon Algebra 1/2 and Saxon Grammar 6, and they are equally impressive.

Love Saxon math
Hey to to whoever will read this.. we are on week number 13 with 1st grade math and my kindergartner loves it! This program
Slowly progresses and is hands on with a daily front and back work sheet. I would highly recommend it and will probably purchase 2nd grade Saxon math for next year.

Good program, a little overkill
We are a Saxon household. I like all the levels. However, don't bother purchasing the instructor's book, or all the manipulatives. Waste of $ and time. Maybe just the Judy Clock. The wooden blocks are also fun to have around for play time. If you were to follow the instructor guide all the time, it would take FOREVER. Just come up with your own manipulatives at home.

Great for beginning math
I have homeschooled 9 children for 20 years. I love how the Saxon program prepares the kids for higher math. It REALLY teaches them their basic facts, and teaches in a very practical way. I do not use Saxon past 3rd grade.

Highly recommended my my mom, who home-schooled us, and also was a public school teacher and reading specialist. She used it both in home-schooling, and in the public school format - she found it to be excellent for both.
Heidi K on Feb 14, 2018
I spent days researching before deciding on Saxon, because it's normal math -not this new Common Core strangeness that'll make your kids cry (the main reason we're Homeschooling now). I love the idea of using colorful fun manipulatives for my 6 year old, too. My husband likes this, because Mr. Saxon was a military vet, and hubby was too. He says it's manly math good for his boys.

Does Saxon Math 1 match up to first grade?
Holli B on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will depend on the standards/curriculum you are comparing it to. Saxon in the primary grades is slower paced than many programs found currently in the public schools or that we carry.
Does this have a 2002 re-printing date inside the front cover? Looking to match my TE with the workbooks.
A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The TEs in our Homeschool Kits have a 1994 copyright date. A re-printing date is inconsequential because there will have been no major changes with just a re-printing.
Is this the third edition?
A shopper on Jun 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, we carry the 1st edition of Saxon Math grades K-3.
what is the meeting book?
A shopper on Apr 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The meeting book is like your child's own personal calendar, only they learn how to fill in the date every day. At the beginning of each lesson in the teachers manual there is a section called "The Meeting" that teaches calendar, weather graph, and counting, and as you teach this section, your student follows along and uses the meeting book. Sometimes, if we've missed a few days, I still make my boys fill in the missing dates and we talk about those dates and what we might've done on those days, so they can see the progression of time.
Does this include everything I will need to teach first grade math? What will I need to purchase extra when I teach it again to my next child?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, in order to do all of the activities and lessons in the Saxon books, you will also need the manipulative kit. The kit has all the 1-inch square blocks, scale, tangrams, geoboard, etc... that you will use in Saxon 1. You need that in addition to the teacher's book and student workbooks. You will either need to photocopy the student workbooks so you can reuse it with your next child or purchase another set of workbooks when you need them for your next student. (Personally I bought the manipulative kit that works for Saxon K-3, so I got all the items needed for all the math books through Saxon 3.)
i do not need meeting book can i buy it without the meeting book?
A shopper on Feb 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The kit is only available with the meeting book but you can purchase the teacher edition and the workbooks by themselves.

The kit has all the 1-inch square blocks, scale, tangrams, geoboard, etc... that you will use in Saxon 1. You need that in addition to the teacher's book and student workbooks. You will either need to photocopy the student workbooks so you can reuse it with your next child or purchase another set of workbooks when you need them for your next student. (Personally I bought the manipulative kit that works for Saxon K-3, so I got all the items needed for all the math books through Saxon 3.)
    i do not need meeting book can i buy it without the meeting book?

    BEST ANSWER: The kit is only available with the meeting book but you can purchase the teacher edition and the workbooks by themselves.
