I LOVE the scaffolding and that this book series teaches MATH, and LOTS of MATH. It's NOT full of extraneous garbage that just clutters up pages. I appreciate that ideas are introduced several times, each time fleshing them out a little more. For example, in the first grade year, iterative addition is introduced, and then multiplication, but it isn't really worked with much, it's just that the idea is presented. And again the second year, but this time, there's more in depth, and it's accompanied by skip counting and some drill.
Skills are clearly outlined with simple and straightforward examples and the corresponding workbook assignments are easy to identify.
If I had to criticize something, I'd say that sometimes there's too little practice, but there are other, additional practice books that round it out nicely.

Singapore is a wonderful math program. The concrete > pictorial > abstract approach makes it easy for kids to grasp concepts. There is emphasis on active thinking and problem-solving. We changed to this program from a more traditional approach, and one of my children who had struggled in the past is enjoying math more and understanding it better.
