We got an early Christmas present! Sort of. It wasn't really intended to be a holiday present, but it arrived today and the girls were so excited about it, you'd think it was an actual Christmas gift!
For years, I've thought about trying RightStart Mathematics. I'd read great things about it when Big Sis (my oldest daughter) was going into Kindergarten and it was among my top three choices for our homeschool math curriculum, but we ended up selecting a different program at the time. Nevertheless, the curiosity about RightStart has always lingered in my mind. So while we like the math program we have been using for the last few years, I am happy to report that we are about to embark on a new math adventure with RightStart! Yipee!
This curriculum was sent to me for review purposes and I will share my genuine and sincere feedback as we use it. I'm eager to incorporate it into our daily learning and I'm not the only one. Both my girls opened the box and squealed with excitement when they saw all the manipulatives, games, and hands-on material that will be used. Despite the fact that it was evening already, they were begging to get started right away! Even though Big Sis is in 3rd grade and we only received Level A (the beginning level), it looked so enticing and fun that she wanted to do it too. I had to inform her that it is primarily for Lil Sis, but if we like it enough, we will consider it for her future math program as well. Then again, I'm not sure if she'll be able to wait that long. While we were unpacking the box, she kept saying, "I want to do this too!" and "Can I please do some kindergarten math with Lil Sis tomorrow?" Sure she can! It can't hurt to do some review - especially if it's fun and her idea! And who knows? Maybe she'll learn something new or expand on her knowledge since this is a new (to us) curriculum. Check back with my blog in January and I'll let you know how it's going!

I'm a homeschooling mom of two, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
