RightStart math into my radar. I had never heard about it but quickly began reading as many reviews as I could. I quickly became intrigued by the way people raved about it. The focus on mental math and strategies facinated me. I also was impressed with the author's extensive experience and education. What stuck out to me the most was that many of the reviewers who wrote glowingly about the curricula were those who had spouses or family who worked in the math field, many of which were engineers. Another thing I noticed was that many were saying it was a good pick for struggling learners, dyslexic children etc. That was information that would hit close to home and I didn't even know it!
It was pricey but I sold what I had previously purchased for math and found RS used. Get this, the price I sold my other math curricula for was the exact cost of the used RightStart math items that I needed!! Isn't God good?!
Anyway, here I am a year and a half later and I am so thankful to the Lord for His goodness to us! My children are not math whizzes by any means but the way Biggest understands and moves numbers in her head is wonderful and now I am slowly working with Big Sis on her journey with RS. She is picking it up quickly and I'm excited to see her learn!
I've just recently realized that both of my girls show dyslexic tendencies with the stronger tendencies showing in Biggest. RightStart has made learning facts and adding and subtracting painless for them because of the amazing way they teach them!
I plan on posting later this week about how RightStart teaches place value and adding four digit numbers so if you're intersted check back with us!!
See ya then!!
