I am using the standards edition as well. We are in the K level though. I saw a huge difference between the K level of the US edition and the K level of the standards edition. The Standards one is so much better. I didnt compair the US and Standards at the 1 level though.
CuckooMamma- I get my singapore at RR with all the my other purchases and just make sure that I need enough to get their free shipping.
The reason the Standards edition would have been better for kindergarten is because Singapore does not really have the Kindergarten so that was written just for the US market.
|The Standards edition was US written to fit US standards. The US has never had the best standards and consistently ranked at the lowest in math on internationally tests. So, you can take that for whatever you want. Some say the Standards edition still keeps with the Singapore way, but it devotes way less time to it as it is spread to thin adding in all the extra, unneccesary, superficial topics of typical US books.|
