|A peek inside Woodjie's workbook.|
Singapore Mathematics teaches children concept by concept. There are occasional reviews and tests, but for the most part the concepts are taught to grade level mastery one at a time.
The textbooks are re-useable, but each student should rightfully have his own workbook. There are two workbooks and two textbooks per grade level. We are finishing 1A and will move on to 1 B sometime in mid-April. Because we started homeschooling around Thanksgiving, we will likely be done with this grade level around the beginning of September if we work through the summer.
So we're a bit behind, but not terribly so. I should rather spend a fair bit of time teaching the basic addition and subtraction math facts, and making sure the children can tell time and count their pennies and nickels before moving up to the next set of books.
