RightStart™ Mathematics Level A Starter Kit


The beginning level math lessons are best started at age 5, or even sooner, before the child develops a reliance on counting strategies. An early start also helps the child understand quantities based around 5s and 10s. Level A includes place value to the hundreds, addition facts to 10, and some basic geometry.

Ready to start with RightStart™ Mathematics Level A? We have just the Starter Kit for you!

You have four decisions to make which will determine which Starter Kit is the right one for you. Your first decision is choosing which type of AL Abacus; Standard or Classic. Next decision is which type of worksheet: coil bound worksheets or e-workbook. Third decision is the type of kit: Basic or Deluxe and final decision is US or Canadian version.

1. AL Abacus Standard or the AL Abacus Classic?

Both of these abacuses are grouped in 5s and 10s with blue and yellow beads and both are made in the USA. The AL Abacus Standard has a red plastic frame and plastic beads. The AL Abacus Classic has a wooden frame and wooden painted beads.

The abacuses are very similar in size; AL Abacus Standard is 9-3/4" x 7-1/2" (24.75 cm x 19.25 cm) and the AL Abacus Classic is 9-3/4" x 8-1/2" (24.75 cm x 21.5 cm). The AL Abacus Standard is more durable due to the plastic material and the design. It is also less expensive.                             

2. Coil-bound worksheets or e-workbook?

The coil-bound worksheets are copy written for a single child's use. The electronic workbook is copy written for a single family's use and will be delivered as a pdf through your email. 

3. Basic Starter Kit or the Deluxe Starter Kit?

The Basic Starter Kit includes all the required books and manipulatives needed to complete the curriculum. The Deluxe Starter Kit has the same required books and manipulatives, however, this kit adds the additional recommended books and manipulatives.

4. US or Canadian version?

The child's worksheets will depict the correct US or Canadian coins, the money card decks will display either US or Canadian images, and if your Deluxe kit includes plastic coins, it will be the ones from your country. The teacher's manual will not vary with the versions.
