I homeschooled for 10 years, and used RightStart for all my kids. It sure gave them a good foundation in math! My son, though, has been a little slower, and he was only in 3rd grade when we put him in school. I used my RightStart materials when he came home and did not understand a concept, or needed extra help (like the math games!). Now I believe we will homeschool him and give him the good start the girls have had until at least Jr. High. Thanks so much for your help.
