Additional practice is provided with math card games.

This is our 4th year using this program. Most testimonials speak of it's benefits for special needs learners, and while they will benefit from this program, please do not consider this to be a watered down, low challenge level math. It is NOT! My children are not special needs learners and their ability to add quickly without counting on their fingers still amaze me (you would be shocked at the number of people who use their fingers and still could not add as fast). Well organized, I use it as a foundation for planning our school year.

We are very happy with RightStart Math. When I explained to my husband how this program uses subitizing to teach math concepts, he exclaimed that that is how he had to teach himself math concepts so that he could understand them. My children love all of the hands-on activities and games. Learning math should be this fun for every child!
E. Teal, Co-op Member
My daughter had decided that she was not capable of doing math. I had tried many different methods to teach her math, but she would not try to understand it. She hated math and thought she was dumb.

After I had used Right Start Mathematics a few times she asked if she could do more. She has gotten over her idea that she is too dumb to do math. Thank you for this product.
Susan P., Co-op Member
My students and I completed two years of RightStart, and definitely enjoyed it. While it's not for everyone, it has helped my "big picture" thinkers grasp math and geometric concepts in a new and engaging way. While there isn't any advanced lesson planning required for you, as the teacher, you will spend a part of each day going over the lesson with your students. Definitely not a "hands-off" curriculum, but the teacher materials are very helpful and thorough. The only negative I can see with RightStart is that it ends at level G, which my mid...(more)
Talisha Cabral, Co-op Member
I am using Rightstart for my 2nd and 4th graders and we are loving it. I wanted a math that was very interactive and hands on and this is perfect. The kids are always excited to find out what math game we get to play. Anytime anyone asks about my curriculum, I am excited to tell them about rightstart. I will definitely be using this with all of my children.
Amber W., Co-op Member
I am so grateful we came upon RightStart at an early age. I just love to see how mathematical conceptual understanding builds in this program! This program seems to fit more different kids of learners than most - auditory, visual, hands on, ADD, - math oriented or not. My mathy dauthter loves the games, but could not handle the many drill and kill worksheets of other programs. I tell everyone I know about RS. If you already have a math program that works well for your child, you can always just buy the games which will support any other math pr...(more)
Ann, Co-op Member
As a former teacher I really appreciate the Right Start program and the philosophy behind it. I have been impressed at what my children have been able to do and how their understanding of the Math concepts develop. I also very much like that the program has high parental involvement and is not just about giving them worksheet after worksheet. The games have been engaging and allowed us to play with multi ages/abilities. I have found my Math abilities sharpening!
Laura Elkins, Co-op Member
We LOVE Right Start Math! This past year was our first year with Right Start Math. It was also the third Math curriculum we've tried. We love how it helps children of all learning styles - visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc. Our children really grasped the "why" versus memorizing rote facts and trying to remember them. The visual aids are plentiful and the games are a wonderful reinforcement of the skills they learn. Our entire family enjoys playing the Math games. There's something for everyone.

The teacher's guides are easy to ...(more)
Jennifer B., Co-op Member
I appreciate RightStart as a complete and thorough math program for my sons. The manipulatives are very useful to help them truly understand and play with numbers instead of just memorizing facts (though they are memorizing facts as well.) We tried other curriculum before but I was mostly disappointed with topics that simply weren't covered. I will continue to use it as long as it keeps working for us! I know other homeschool families that use RightStart and enjoy sharing successes and encouraging each other.
Lori S., Co-op Member
I would recommend RightStart Math. The materials are a high quality and my 5 year old son wants to do his math lessons most of the time and even gets somewhat excited about them. It's definitely a good fit for kids that like hands on activities. I haven't found the prep time to be a problem thus far as I can generally look things over briefly and then begin the lesson at this early stage. Planning on continuing to level B once we're done with level A. We're definitely glad that math is not boring.
