Product Description:

Bright, colorful workbooks, optional activity books, solid progression of first readiness skills (K4) and then introductory arithmetic skills all tied together with a user-friendly teacher guide. This is the Earlybird Kindergarten program - two levels (A & B) that can be used either as separate K4 and K5 programs (one book per year) or with quicker pacing as a kindergarten program (both books in one year). An adaptation of the original Earlybird math, the program has been slightly modified to align to Common Core. Mathematical concepts are systematically presented and reinforced using a concrete to pictorial to abstract approach. The Textbooks (A & B) include the actual instruction and can be used independently of the corresponding Activity Book or the Teacher Guide. The Activity Books add an element of hands on activities - and fun! Units parallel the textbooks and have a nice variety of coloring, pasting, writing, and games. The Teacher Guide ties everything together, providing reduced copies (with answers) of all student pages in both the Textbooks and the Activity Books. Each set of detailed lesson plans includes objectives, listing of CC standards applied, materials, vocabulary list, and the teaching sequence. The various options (with/without Activity Books; with/without Teacher Guides) give you a lot of flexibility in terms of expense without any real sacrifices in terms of actual mathematical instruction.

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

It's the best to use for little kids - I just bought this for my 3-year-old and she's the third kid I will have used this curriculum for.

I've been very impressed with the SIngapore Math/Primary Mathematics Common Core series. Their approach makes math interesting as well as the colorful pages. The Kindergarten series is perfect for this age since it also involves some cutting and pasting projects. The series for older students has extra practice books and also a book for challenging problems, which stretches the children in their understanding of the core concepts taught.

Organized & Easy to follow
We didn't expect to home school our kindergartner but here we are. This book has eased my fears about teaching math. It is very organized with a clear focus on each unit. The only down side so far I can see is that each unit is so focused it may be easy to forget what was learned in the previous unit. Not a problem, just be aware to continue working on ideas from previous units.
