We used the Math U See Primer during our kindergarten year. I was pregnant, tired, and a wee bit loopy, so I needed a good math program that was easy for my 5 year old, yet challenging enough to keep her up/ahead of grade level. I also needed for it to be ALMOST teacher-free.
This curriculum answered my prayers. I remember lying on the couch at 81/2 months pregnant while Mr. Demme taught my daughter math! It was great to have a math curriculum which came with an instructional DVD (where someone ELSE was the instructor), at least for that season of my life. NyGirl learned a lot in math that year – counting by 1’s, 5’s, 10’s, telling time, basic addition and subtraction, skip counting, etc.
