Product Description:

This is a 2-year preschool/kindergarten program that emphasizes concepts over drill. Like most early learning programs, a great deal of work is done linking sets of concrete objects to the numbers they represent. Although not developed by Singapore's Ministry of Education, this program was written by an educator with 28 years experience writing preschool and primary school materials.

This program introduces the basics of color, shape, size, numbers to 100 (but focusing on 1-10), length, weight, volume, time, money, picture graphs, and single-digit addition and subtraction. Topics like place value, addition, and subtraction are not covered until the second year. Some changes from the former US Edition to this one include some rearrangement of topics which results in less repetition and a better sequence of concepts. There is now a review at the end of each unit. Textbooks include a simple glossary, an index, and some "Math at Home" pages. Pages have been added covering solid shapes, patterns, and time. Pages were added to the chapters on addition and subtraction to provide additional material on different interpretations (e.g. number bonds, part-whole, counting on, counting back). Numbers past 30 and to 100 and money topics are not part of the CA standards and were moved to the last two units.

Numerous illustrations are used not only to facilitate learning, but also to hold a child's interest. The author's philosophy seems to be "quality before quantity." She presents a few well-illustrated problems rather than simply listing 10-15 practice problems. Brief teacher's instructions on how to use the workbook are located at the bottom of each page. Suggestions on how to approach a topic and reminders about specific vocabulary to introduce are often provided. The amount of material to cover in one day is up to the teacher. The teacher is also responsible for planning suggested pre-workbook activities, drawing the student into mathematical discussions, and when necessary, guiding the student through workbook exercises. Teachers who prefer more detailed lesson plans, like those provided in Saxon's Math K Teacher's Manual, might have difficulty with Earlybird's brief instructions. Answer keys are unavailable, and generally unnecessary, for this level.

The Activity Books follow the teaching sequence in the textbook and are designed to be used with the K Math Readers, although neither is required. The readers are based on well-known children's rhymes and stories; each of the readers accompanies two textbook units. There are suggestions for extra materials most of which are simple items from around the house. The list of suggested manipulatives, however, would be useful to have on hand.

Compared to other programs, Earlybird Math does have certain disadvantages. Some prefer workbooks that contain more practice exercises, like Horizons K. Horizons also moves at a quicker pace and covers addition and subtraction to a more advanced level. Nonetheless, Earlybird Math does a thorough job of teaching the basics. It will probably appeal most to children who are visual learners and parents who feel comfortable explaining math concepts, appreciate some instructional guidance, but don't mind planning their own lessons.


Category Description for Singapore Math Standards Edition (K-6):

Primary Math S/E (Standards Edition) (K-6) was adapted to meet the pre-Common Core CA math standards. An additional amount of content (probability, data analysis, negative numbers, coordinate graphing) from the 2nd edition was added back in and topics were rearranged but it is similar to the US edition. Cumulative Reviews at the end of each Unit and practice sets within each unit were added. Textbooks are in color. 2008 copyright dates. This edition includes the Earlybird Kindergarten Math program.

Category Description for Singapore Math Programs:

Countries around the world first became interested in Singapore’s math curriculum when results of the Third International Math and Science Study (TIMSS) were published in 1995. Conducted by the International Study Center at Boston College, achievement tests in both math and science were administered to students in over 40 countries. Students from Singapore ranked highly in mathematics achievement: 1st in the fourth, seventh, and eighth grade levels and 2nd at the third grade level. Results for the U.S. were disappointing: 10th in the third grade, 11th in the fourth grade, 23rd in the seventh grade, and 27th at the eighth grade level. In a follow-up study in 1999, Singapore again ranked 1st in eighth grade math achievement while U.S. eighth graders ranked 19th. Although a first place ranking does not necessarily imply the best program, something about Singapore’s math program was working.

“Singapore Approach Math” is a general term referring to a type of mathematical instruction (i.e. curriculum) developed from a syllabus designed by Singapore’s Ministry of Education in the 1980s. There were a number of revisions and the 3rd edition was the last edition used in Singapore. The good test scores were associated with this material and all of our Singapore Approach Math programs are based primarily on the 3rd edition although it is no longer available for sale. Components from different editions are not interchangeable but a student can move between the editions in-between levels.

Primary Math US (1-6) is an adaptation of the 3rd edition for use in the U.S. Although a small amount of content (division of fractions) from the 2nd edition was added back into the US edition, it is almost identical to the 3rd edition. The US edition adds sections for U.S. customary measurements and uses U.S. spelling and conventions. We expect this edition to be available indefinitely. ©2003

Primary Math S/E (Standards Edition) (K-6) was adapted to meet the pre-Common Core CA math standards. An additional amount of content (probability, data analysis, negative numbers, coordinate graphing) from the 2nd edition was added back in and topics were rearranged but it is similar to the US edition. Cumulative Reviews at the end of each Unit and practice sets within each unit were added. Textbooks are in color. ©2008 This edition includes Earlybird Kindergarten Math.

Primary Math CC (Common Core) (K-5) is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and is another adaptation of the 3rd edition. Only minor changes were made to the scope and sequence. Unit Reviews are no longer cumulative and Practices were removed although some of the content was incorporated into the lessons. ©2014 Includes Earlybird Kindergarten Math CC. This edition will be available for the foreseeable future.

New Elementary Math (7-8) is a no-frills program based on an older Singaporian program and covering integrated algebra and geometry.It’s considered a sequel to the Primary Math programs.

Math in Focus (K-8) was developed by Great Source (a division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) in conjunction with Marshall Cavendish (the original publisher in Singapore). Although the basic instructional sequences are similar and the content is very close to the SE, material added to the most recent editions brings it into alignment with CC. Math in Focus has a more American look and “feel.” ©2010, 2014

Mother of 5 children age 20 to 4. I have used Singapore Math K for all 4 older children. The 5th child gets to experience the colorful, manipulative-friendly pages of Singapore K. It's a wonderful introduction to the idea of "textbooks." I know that "real" math occurs beyond the pages of a paper textbook. This pre-K/Kindergarten friendly text allows a parent educator to incorporate real-world, concrete experience while acclimating a new student to the world of learning "between the covers."

We used these with our older two children. It was easy to adapt to slightly different learning styles. Both have excelled and now are 2 years ahead of most of the peers. We were originally recommended Singapore math from the experience of an engineer working with peers that were taught the Singapore method vs. those taught with the tradition Amercan school methods.

The reviews seem to be pretty good for this. I've used lots of Singapore Math in the past, but have never tried this Kindergarten level, so we'll see!
Tammy F on Aug 28, 2016
I have used this book before for my daughter and it was simple math to understand. Not too hard for beginners and fun activities for Kindergartners. I supplement practice sheets from online sources for extra practice. Will be using it on my 4 and 6 year old this year ( my eldest boy is developmentally delayed so it will be easy for him to understand without making it too confusing for him).

Math in Focus Grade K Student Pack
Math in Focus Grade K Student Pack
BEST ANSWER: Very similar, both by the same publisher. MIF is MC’s product targeting school districts while the other along sister products Primary Math are designed for home schooling. Content is about 90% the same. Make sure you use workbooks and textbooks as well as supplementals like assessments. I have used both, taught Math in Focus (MIF) before retiring and have used primary mathematics for my grandchildren.
How different are the two editions of this? For example, if you start with the Standards Edition A, could you do Common Core B or vice versa? Or do you need to do A and B from the same set?

BEST ANSWER: Content is very similar and yes, you should be able to go from the Standards Edition (S/E) A Workbook to the Common Core (CC) B workbook.
What all do you need to make this a complete curriculum?
A shopper on May 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The book itself can be a full curriculum, but having some of the recommended manipulative would be super helpful. Kids need concrete things to understand the abstract! This also has a workbook that goes along with it, but after using this for 3 of my kids I would say it is optional and helpful for a kid who loves extra worksheet kind of stuff (2 of mine didn't). The problems in the book will help you use real-life things you can find around your house to teach and practice the concepts.
What year is this published/printed?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: 2007.
Do you use this textbook with the Essential Math Kindergarten A workbook?

BEST ANSWER: I did not. It's my understanding that they are 2 separate curriculums since the Early Bird book comes with the teachers manual. With the Essential books, everything you need to teach the concept is at the bottom of the page. We didn't hardly touch them and used them more as a supplementary item. I ended up using Abeka Math instead.
Does anyone have a comprehensive list of the manipulatives needed for Early Bird Kindergarten Mathematics? Is there a kit? How about for Primary Mathematics levels above Kindergarten?

Great Math Resource for Young Children
This is the 4th time I’ve purchased this book, and I’ll use it again for any kindergartner who likes to use workbooks. It’s very pleasing to the eye and attractive to small children because of the bright colors. Although it does work well as a standalone, there are some pages you won’t be able to do without manipulative. We have them all, so that’s fine for us. You do not need the textbook or the teacher guide for this, but if you have them, they are also great resources.

Fun starting point
This book seems better suited to prekindergarten level, it has basic patterns, shapes, and forming the numbers. We really like the chapters in the back about measuring and capacity. It's a fun start to math.

I love it for preschool or kindergarten math!
I would recommend this. I really like how Singapore moves students gradually through the concrete/representational/abstract stages of math development. As a person who struggled with math for years I can see this system filling in all the holes I missed.

We used Singapore Math Early Bird for my K She enjoyed the colorful pages I thought it went at a good pace; not too fast not too slow Early Bird Math taught basic K math: graphing simple addition simple subtraction shapes measurement weight patterns comparison and sorting This is pretty much an "open and go" curriculum except for gathering some simple manipultives used for counting weighting etc You decide how many pages you do a day/week with your child We did much of it verbally The teachers manual is not necessary We also bought the Earlybird Activity Books and Earlybird Readers for more practice and for fun! This is a great curriculum and I'm eager to use it again w my younger 2 children!

We use Singapore Math for all 4 of our children so it seemed natural to start our kinders with it (two at the same time in K) My suggestion is to purchase "Power Math-K" isbn is 981-04-1817-5 to use as a supplement with your child It has filled in the gaps for one of our kiddos that desired a little more :O)I personally am a huge fan of Singapore Math But know there are a lot of great programs out there

This product is very helpful to a newbie homeschooler who just isn't sure what a K'er would be learning in school It is an open-and-go curriculum that needs no preparation A few manipulatives are helpful but items from around the house are easily substituted for the book's recommendations Using some of the recommended activities helps to facilitate learning to children with different learning styles Although the recommended age is Kindergarten we used it for Pre-K with no problems
