"Easy On The Teacher" Math Book?

Posted by   + Show Post

Anyone know an "easy on the teacher" math curriculum for first grade?  What I'm using now has a teacher guide with several lessons/exercises to be taught using a variety of manipulatives, games, etc.  Then we need to go through a text book together and then after that she does her work book pages.  Usually by the time we get part way through the teacher guide, my daughter is finished!  We can't seem to complete everything in the lesson without taking days to do it and the guide suggests one whole lesson each day!  Is there anything that would be more "user friendly"?  My daughter likes her "Explode The Code" books.  We do a short lesson together and then she enjoys filling in her work book pages on her own!  If there is anything like that for math, I would appreciate the suggestions!

I second, third and fourth Math U See! =D

We've used other curriculums but this is the best by far!

Quoting Jinx-Troublex3:

I second Math u see. Especially for hands on learners.

We also just switched my middle ds to teaching textbooks which id working really well. It has the lesson on the computer and then they work the problems in a workbook.After they work them they enter them on the computer and they can work through any they miss. He loves that it corrects instantly and he can fix his mistakes.

children to think, you begin by treating them seriously when they are
little, giving them responsibilities, talking to them candidly,
providing privacy and solitude for them, and making them readers and
thinkers of significant thoughts from the beginning. That's *if* you
want to teach them to think." ~ Bertrand Russell
