What We Thought
My daughter is in Kindergarten and likes math. She had a good preschool start to Math so some of the concepts were already covered. She is also a fan of workbooks and worksheets so this is a great curriculum for her. She really enjoyed the printables and the review games. Sometimes it was difficult to keep her to only the worksheets that were slated for the day because she wanted to keep going.
The program allows for teaching the student to follow directions as well. I read the directions to her and she would complete the worksheet; however, if she didn’t follow the directions correctly, she would get upset but I think its good practice to learn that the student has to follow directions.
Overall, we really enjoyed the curriculum. We will definitely continue with it this year. I liked that it did not require a lot of preparation and that the lessons were short. My daughter liked the engaging and varying activities.
Each quarter additional information is added to the review board, which is a board that is built upon and reviewed throughout the curriculum. Crafty Classroom suggests that you use manilla folder glued/taped together to which students add the review board materials. The review board is a great idea and allows the student to see the developing concepts and easily review them each day.
Overall, it is a good program, developing an important math foundation. I would definitely recommend it. Like other products, we have used from Craft Classroom. You can see our review of Crafty Classroom Preschool Bible Curriculum here.
