My children are finishing third grade at a Montessori school and we may be homeschooling next year. I’ve read about the Life of Fred math series and am considering purchasing it. On the website, they recommend any child between 1st-4th grade start at the first book in the series. I’ve looked at the sample and am concerned my children will be bored or frustrated and will not want to use them.
For those of you who have used Life of Fred, would you recommend starting at the beginning or skipping a few books?
p.s. If we homeschool, my children have asked if they could see a math teacher on the side who uses Montessori techniques. (They really love the Montessori math materials.) I am hoping the Life of Fred books could supplement the Montessori math.
