Doe anyone have an opinion, good or bad, on Saxon or Singapore Earlybird for math. I am thinking of using one for my kindergarten math curriculum.

Thanks!

I loved Singapore's method and books. I bought the science curriculum too. Saxon, I found repetitious and boring and didn't have enough real life problems. Singapore as in any Asian education does a lot of hands stuff, especially math. It's not just theory and calculation. It's real and builds math concepts. I highly recommend it.

Would you be willing to send me a link for the science curriculum you used? I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much.

Also, did you use the Earlybird Singapore or the Math in Focus curriculum?

Hi Elizabeth,

I used Singaporemath.com. They did not have Earlybird back then to my recollection. Here is the link:

There is also another site that you might like:

Message me any time. I still have the books  I homeschooled with, that is if you have questions about their content.smiley
