I’d like some clarification on which books to order (or get from googlebooks, which I have) for my dc. I’d be using them with elementary students, one who stuggles a bit and one who is somewhat a beginner who could use more oral/mental math.
I see that Rainbow Resource has the set and so does another site in CD format (then I’d be printing them out).
I’m using Ray’s Primary Arithmetic but I see there is a New one and now I’m confused.
Thanks in advance.my3boysParticipant
You know, I think when Mott Media republished Ray’s, they changed some wording where appropriate and added the “New.” When we went to Ray’s, I did order the set of four volumes, the answer keys and the parent-teacher guide by Ruth Beechick. That was a time vs. money situation and I didn’t want to be bothered with any possible changes in previous editions if I were searching them out separately. I use this with the SCM handbook as there are a few things Ray’s doesn’t include that Charlotte found very helpful in securing mathematical understanding. The simplicity works very well for us. Ruth Beechk’s Parent-Teacher guide has progress reports and tests.
They were written as oral lessons and we do use gridded notebooks with a larger grid from a Waldorf-store online for the times my boys are writing problems out or writing out their mulitiplication tables.
Sorry, I’ve only made a cursory look at all the Ray’s that Ruth linked to in another post but from what I see, the four books that Mott’s has republished as “New” that Ruth Beechick wrote the guide for form a complete Scope & Sequence through 8th grade (approximately).
