homeschool questioin
 
Any of you that homeschool use the Math U See program? I have seen it online and it seems like a good program, but wanted to hear it from some people who actually use it.

On a side note ~ I am "homeschooling" my youngest this year. He misses the cut off for kindergarten by a couple of weeks. He will be five the end of the month. I have always home-preschooled them but I have decided to go ahead and see and how my son does with moving forward with a kindergarten type curriculum. I worried that he would then be bored when he does go to kindergarten, but he could do so well that we decide to homeschool all of them!! He will be my guinea pig!! :rolleyes:

I use it. All 5 of the oldest are in it and they like it and it works for us. My husband does most of the teaching to the oldest 3, though, because my math brain is for the birds and I get frustrated because I can't explain it to them so they can understand it. I am getting better with the younger ones, or at least their stuff is easy enough for me to understand!

My 4 yo turns 5 next week! In FL, he wouldn't be able to go to school this year either, but I have to register him as a homeschooler (1st grade) by the start of the school year next year because his birthday is before Feb 1 (weird thing in our law) so pretty much everyone who has a kid whose birthday falls from Aug 1-Jan 31 start a year early.

Did you have something specific to ask about Math U See or just general "do you like it?", which I do.

just a general "do you like it"? I was just looking for someone else who uses it to see if they like it. It seemed like it was good but it's hard to tell just reading on the website.

Thank you!!

I have a friend who is using it this year and she LOVES LOVES LOVES it....I haven't used it...we are using Alpha Omega Press's Horizons Math this year. We'll see...it's our first year of that....

Anyway..I've heard great things about MUS...

I have a forum that I started...it's REALLY small..just a handful of people...and not always new posts every day...but it's nice still...it's a Christian homeschooling forum...if anyone is interested in a link PM me...There are a couple of Math U See users on there :)
