Kindergarten Math

What is your favorite program for Kindergarten math? I am seeing so many options out there. It is kind of overwhelming. What do you use? Do you love it?

Re: Kindergarten Math

We are using Singapore's Essential Math for K. It's working well for my ds and very easy to implement on my part. Ds LOVES it!

We used Singapore Essential K for fall semester; I liked it a lot.

Re: Kindergarten Math

Thanks mamas! I was just looking at the Singapore website. Are the two books available all I will need to get started then?

Re: Kindergarten Math

I've used Horizons, Shiller, BJU, and a host of other stuff. We have finally settled on Math U See and just LOVE it. Using it for K and 5th.

Re: Kindergarten Math

We're using math u see and I'm lukewarm on it. We're planning on using math mamaoth next year, and there isn't a press for kindy math with that program. Just basic counting and measuring; no worksheets/bookwork until first grade. I can't speak to how good math mamaoth is/isn't though, so take this with a grain of salt.

Re: Kindergarten Math

I feel like he best part of Singapore math is that you only need the 2 workbooks for Kindergarten and IMO only the 4 books for 1st grade (I didn't bother with the teacher's manual and don't feel like I'm missing anything).
