Singapore math question-K vs Primary 1st

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there anyone out there with experience on this? I want try this program out. My dd is right in between K and 1st grade (December b-day). She already knows a lot of addition and subtraction that she learned on her own, so I'm trying to figure out if the K or 1st grade books would be more appropriate.
We mostly play and unschool, so this is a new foray for us. Dd has requested some more workbooks and really likes math.
I'd appreciate it so much if anyone has personal experience or knows where I could find out more. Thank you.

You might check the Sonlight website (sonlight.com). They have samples of Singapore, as well as a scope and sequence.

I'd go for the 1st then.

The 1st is a bit harder (obviously)... Right now, my son is doing a series of workbook pages that involve picking 2 numbers (out of 5) that add up to one specific number. It's hard for him, but he really likes the way it's done.

I'll see if I have time to pull out the K books tonight and review their contents, but I'd go for 1st. It seems pretty easy.

Given your description, I'd go with the 1st grade workbook.

I'd go for the 1st, too. We just started it and we skipped over several of the first lessons because ds had already mastered the basics of number identification and such.

My son is the same age as your daughter and he is 10 pages from finishing the K Singapore and we've already got the Primary 1 books here so yes, it sounds like she ought to go ahead and start those. If you get them and think they are just a bit too much (which I don't think you will) then you could order the K 2A and 2B books.
