Product Description:

Earlybird Kindergarten Math Standards Edition is a comprehensive, activity-based program designed to provide kindergarten students with a strong foundation in mathematics. Aligned with the Framework for California Schools, the program aims to prepare young students for subsequent stages of mathematical thinking. In the Textbook (consumable) , mathematical concepts are developed in a systematic, engaging, fun, hands-on way with meaningful activities and attractive illustrations. Teaching notes can be found at the bottom of the student pages in both the text and activity books. New mathematical concepts are introduced and build on concepts already taught and mastered, review pages assess the students’ mastery of learning objectives, and structured activities help to consolidate the mathematical concepts taught. Activity Books follow the teaching sequence in the textbook and are designed to be used with the (now out of print) Math Readers which feature rhymes and stories. Both the activity books and readers are optional.
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.

Primary Math 2022 Edition (K-5) is a completely new revision retaining all the excellent teaching methods of the earlier Primary Math programs. Incorporating both cumulative assessments and challenging problem solving, mastery learning is emphasized. The scope and sequence is similar to previous editions and topics are aligned to state and national standards. ©2021-2022

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

This is an excellent foundation for mathematical concepts in an enjoyable format for Kindergarteners.
Erika K on Apr 14, 2020
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."

I've used Singapore Math with my older child for years and am planning on using it with my Kindergartener as well. Book A looks too easy for her so we're starting with B.

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.

We have used Primary Mathematics 1 and 2 with our older child for homeschooling. We used level 1 for the kindergarten year but had to do some extra lessons and supplementing with online/printable resources for number bonds since we didn't do the Kindergarten curriculum (number bonds introduced in Kindergarten B). For our younger child I'm going to get Kindergarten B to make sure we cover the introduction to number bonds in preparation for Level 1.
AMANDA M on Jun 7, 2017
We used this course with our son and liked it.

My third child just turned 4 and we have used this curriculum with each of our daughters at this age. It begins very gently and helps them develop strong number awareness.
Carolyn B on Mar 22, 2016
Used this for first child and plan to use Singapore with second. This is one curriculum we have been very happy with. A little costly, but totally worth it for a solid math foundation.
Noelia on Mar 2, 2016
Singapore has worked well for all 4 of our children. My oldest is finishing the 2nd half of grade 6 this year, and is doing very well in Math.
Benjamin G on Mar 1, 2016
The Singapore Math looks like it will explain concepts logically in way my son will understand. I need something to guide our learning time at home. I am hoping this textbook enriches our learning.
Valerie H on Feb 10, 2016
We completed Kindergarten mathematics A :)

Great Book!
I’ve used this with all of my life so far. So much of Kindergarten math can be learned “real life” style but when the littles want to “do school” like the big kids… this is what I pull out. I start book A for my 4 yr olds if they’re interested. It just gives them a little experience with book writing … super easy so they get a lot of confidence in math fast!

Easy to teach and has great explanations
Easy to teach and to explain. I love that it tells you what to say and what to expect children to do or understand during the lesson. I’m new to homeschooling and this has been great. I like how they build up the amount of learning as the lessons progress.

Love this book!
We have used three chapters of the "B" text and activity books so far this fall, and absolutely love them. It's not too slow, yet is challenging I'm all of the right ways. I highly recommend them.
