My oldest son has struggled with and hated Math for years. At school it was hard, and afterwards, homeschooling was hard. Tried different approaches…nothing “clicked”. I knew his brain was geared to learn differently from the traditional way. He was behind at least 3 years in Math. He didn’t struggle with any of the other subjects like that. This year, for 6th grade, we made the switch to Rightstart. He and my other son had gotten to “play” with some of the manipulatives Rightstart displayed at their table at a homeschool convention, and they were actually EXCITED to try it and ASKED ME if we could switch to that curriculum. We are 7 weeks into it and both boys LOVE it so far. It’s so hands-on and challenges kids to really think for themselves. Learning through games is especially good for active boys! And they are actually learning while they play! But my melting moment was yesterday, when my 6th grader, for the first time ever said this during our lesson: “I love this!! I could do this forever!!” *tears* I could not believe I was hearing him say that. That’s a miracle. Thank you so much for providing the ONLY fun alternative out there!!! I can also tell that the people who put your program together actually enjoy Math themselves and just know how to communicate that passion.
