I was delighted to see the lights start coming on

I am homeschooling 3 of my children this year. My 9 year old daughter and 10 year old son both have reading/learning challenges, and I have an eager 4 year old. We have used several different math curriculum’s in the past with varying levels of success. I was led to RightStart while researching Montessori methods for my 4 year old and discovered that it is also a wonderful choice for children who are math-challenged. After using this curriculum for only a few weeks, I was delighted to see the lights start coming on in the eyes of the 2 older children. The abacus was making things really click for them. I started the two of them in Level C, per the placement test, but each level starts with a review training that teaches the abacus methods. As for my 4 year old, she is using level A, since she was 3 1/2 and we have completed about 15 of the lessons so far. Between the manipulatives and the games (All 3 LOVE the games!!) she is getting a solid math start. We are planning to use all levels.
