    I see all sorts of listings from people who use curriculum for math and I am just following Charlotte’s examples straight from her book. I use buttons for manipulatives that I bought for 4 dollars from the craft store. Should I be adding some sort of curriculum? Our oldest turns 6 in May so I haven’t officially started year one, but we do implement many subjects because she wants to learn to read and just learn period.

    I think it depends upon your comfort level with teaching basic math. I rarely used a “formal” math curriculum before age 10 or so. Family Math is a wonderful resource for informal math games, as is Peggy Kaye’s Games for Math if you want more ideas.

    Have you heard of Math on the Level (MOTL) I got it from a Thomas Jefferson Ed mom, who was selling it. I think it is GREAT, in that it is very thorough, you have control over what you are teaching, yet it allows you to use a whole host of ancillary materials (if, like me, you have them from all the OTHER ‘great curricula’ you started out with!) and is short and to the point- NO TWADDLE. The charts and progress report aids are also a big help, from one who used to have ‘math phobia’.

    Hope that helps.
