Saxon Math develops a solid foundation in the language and basic concepts in all areas of mathematics. It carefully builds concepts in small increments and provides practice in order to create success for your child. Saxon's primary Home Study Kits for kindergarten through third grade provide materials appropriate for teaching children in a home setting. Each kit contains:
• a Teacher's Manual (a spiral-bound book containing from 112 lessons in kindergarten up to 140 lessons in third grade)
• a Meeting Book (a consumable book which you and your child will use during The Meeting at the beginning of the day)
Each first through third grade kit also contains:
• a Student Workbook (two books which include written practice pages, lesson masters, assessments, and fact sheets) and Fact Cards
Each lesson in the teacher's manual provides a list of materials and preparation instructions. The lesson which follows is scripted, making teaching easy and providing appropriate language and questions. This lesson includes The Meeting, a new objective to be taught, fact practice and written practice instructions (in grades 1 through 3), and assessment instructions on appropriate days.
Saxon Math K-3 is a multisensory approach that emphasizes the use of manipulatives. The math manipulatives are available in one kit that can be used for all four years. The manipulatives kit includes 450 pieces (a student clock, teddy bear counters, color tiles, dominoes, geo boards, 100 number chart, and much more) that accelerate understanding of abstract math concepts.
