    Brittney McGann

    My daughter and I had the great privilege to be beta-testers for Book 1 of the Charlotte Mason Elementary Arithmetic Series. When we started my daughter was a couple months shy of six, very chatty and seldom still, but she was insistent that she begin her own lessons just like her sister. She knew only what she had picked up by the way, so Richele’s book was her very first experience with lessons of any kind. Very slowly we worked our way through the numbers, learning how we could add or subtract; discovering how many ways we could divide the number being learned into groups, and learning to count forward and backward with ease. I had to change the subject for all the word problems to kittens for a few lessons, but because everything is laid out so clearly I was able to keep my focus on my student. I learned how to draw her attention back to the problem at hand to stretch her just a little bit, but I also learned to watch her cues to tell me it was time to put math aside for the day. This curriculum isn’t written by lesson, but by numbers studied, so we can move at our own pace without pressure. I have watched my child’s confidence grow and I can see the pleasure she takes in her own understanding. I am confident that my daughter has a solid foundation to build upon and I know that continuing with Richele’s books will only deepen her joy and appreciation for the created beauty revealed through mathematics. This set with included manipulatives is even easier to use because everything you are going to need is ready to go and in one place.
