Math! I remember a time when I used to (and I sometimes still do!) dread that simple 4-letter word. I was a pretty good math student but I didn’t like it. At all. When it came time to teaching my kids math, I wanted to try to make it a fun experience so that they can learn to actually enjoy it. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Dimensions Math PK-5 from Singapore Math Inc. has actually put some fun back into math!
In exchange for my honest opinion, we received the Level K-B semester Teacher Guide, Textbook and Workbook from Dimensions Math PK-5 for this review.
What Is Dimensions Math PK-5
The Dimensions Math® PK-5 is a new series written by a team of teachers and trainers with more than 100 years of combined classroom experience. The series is rigorous, effective, and engaging and is separated into two semesters/levels, A and B. These levels correspond with the first and second halves of the school year. For this review, we received the Level K-B semester.
Each semester offers a textbook, workbook, teacher’s guide, online resources, and assessments. Lessons include discussion, exploration, use of manipulatives and exercises and it is recommended to use both the textbook and workbook simultaneously together, and not one or the other.
How We Used Level K-B
We have used this as our primary math curriculum for this semester and we complete lessons at least twice per week. Each week, I review the Teacher’s Guide to plan for the lessons. We start by completing the textbook, which has learning tasks, practices, and reviews the lesson. We then proceed to the workbook which has more practice as well as independent work. With this level, it’s easy to want to do several lessons at a time, but I suggest sticking to one lesson per day.
How Much Does Dimensions Math PK-5 Cost
My Thoughts On Dimensions Math PK-5
My daughter and I have both thoroughly enjoyed using this curriculum! We did not have to modify anything as she is able to keep up with the lessons. I found that after teaching her the first few math problems, she is able to complete the rest of the lesson independently.
Dimensions Math PK-5 is beautifully laid out and is easy to navigate. I love their free online resources, which are a great addition to the lessons. I also love the price! It is an affordable option for homeschooling families and I highly recommend it.
Since we loved Level K-B of Dimensions Math PK-5 so much, I will be purchasing Level Pre-KA set for my preschooler!
