I wish I found this product sooner. My son didn't like writing and he didn't struggle with math. Just with writing the math. This program saves me unnecessary struggles while delivering mathematical knowledge to my child.
I find the concept of subitizing (rapids quantity recognition) very efficient. The book creates it by games and manipulatives and repetition. The quantities are represented in different ways: tallies, fingers, hand claps, tiles, abacus and standard numbers. I also find manipulatives and games more engaging than traditional curriculums.
We tried two other workbook-based mathematics programs, which both ended in my son saying "I hate math." We switched to RightStart in the hope that a different approach would help. He now asks to do math! The hands-on, active learning approach has been a game-changer.
During the pandemic shut downs I have started home schooling my disabled non-verbal son who can not use his hands but can use an eye gaze computer to communicate. With some creative adaptations my son is finally understanding number sense and quantities. . De-emphasizing counting has been the key to success for us since he will never be able to use one to one correspondence in counting. The Right Start way of visualizing quantity and using music and multiple manipulative's has been incredible. He loves to do "math" time and I can see the steady progress even though he has dyscalculia. The curriculum is laid out perfectly with short, well thought out lessons that teach a concept from so many different angles. I wasn't sure I would be able to teach my son math, especially given our unique challenges, but here we are learning and having fun. We love it!
We have tried several math curriculums. This is HANDS down the BEST out there. So grateful to have found this company! Hand packed with love and built for the best interests of our children!
Great curriculum, my 5 year old loves math time! My 2 year old observes and is learning as well!
This is our first year homeschooling, and I am very happy to be using Rightstart math. My daughter loves her math lessons and games, and I love the guidance I get on what to do with her each day. Regular review and practice of new material is built into each day's lesson to keep it interesting and fresh, yet get enough repetition to build a solid foundation.
I'm so glad I found this curriculum at a Special Needs homeschool convention. I am currently using it for my two kindergarten boys, ages 5 (neurotypical) and 6.5 (delayed). I love the manipulatives and my boys are always excited to do the lessons. They're learning at slightly different paces but it isn't difficult to modify the lesson or combine two lessons to meet both of their needs. The teacher manual is well-structured and makes it easy to pick up the materials and get to our lesson without a lot of prior preparation. I'm confident this is setting them both up for success. I'm also doing level B with an older student. I've used several other programs with my oldest kids and wish I would have been aware of RightStart earlier!
I am using Right Start Level A with my 5 yr old kindergartner this year and we are loving it! The materials are excellent quality! The way the program is designed allows her to learn so much while having fun!
I'm very impressed with the Right Start program so far. I am using Level A this year with a five year old and six year old. Last year, we mostly relied on Abeka workbooks for math. Both kiddos enjoy math but I could tell they needed something more solid to really understand it. Several reviews ("farmhouse schoolhouse" really stood out to me) helped me decide to give Right Start a try. They fell in love with "Yellow is the Sun" from the beginning and are so enthusiastic about their math lesson each day. The lessons are short, but packed with a variety of activities and I love that I can see their understanding. Likewise, each lesson is organized so well. After we gather the materials we are ready to go! I also really appreciate the explanation sections for each lesson; they help me guide them through problem-solving scenarios and give reasons for the different activities and methods. I'm really looking forward to using Level A this year!
