Singaporemath.com Inc Essential Math Kindergarten A

Graphically represented problems reinforce concepts and skills for kindergarten students. As a stand-alone text or supplement, students will practice shapes, number order, set, counting, measurement, and patterns through visual exercises and examples.

There are useful ideas at the bottom of each page for parents and teachers to introduce the concepts concretely before doing the workbook page, and for extending the concept after doing the page. Lessons are one full page (front and back). 158 pages, softcover. Grade K. Book A is designed to cover the first half of the kindergarten year.

My son did enjoy this workbook. However, I didn't find this workbook to be a challenge for him at all. I expected the lessons to progressively get more difficult. I did not find that to be true. This workbook was very simple. My son was able to complete it in a month. He is now moving to workbook b.
The pages are visually pleasing. The lessons are presented well. There is a lot of coloring, counting, matching, & sorting, and then some measuring at the end. My friend who has a masters in education is using this workbook for her kindergarten son and finds the workbook to be just right for him. So, I don't necessarily think the workbook was not on level. It just was not the right workbook for my son.

My 5 year old loves to work in her new math book! I find it is a nice easy introduction to math, yet she is already learning new things. I love that it is a great price. Very easy to use.

Book A starts out very, basic. It is however, very comprehensive. The lessons move quickly enough so there is no boredom. The teaching suggestions on the bottom of each page are what makes this golden. This is not just a workbook to hand to the child, it requires a bit of prep from the teacher/parent but is very much worth the extra effort. Without those exercises, you would lose a lot of the Singapore method. I have to add, I am using this for pre-K with my 4y/o with excellent results. She absolutely loves math and I credit that to this book.

It covers 1/2 a year of the basic k-5 math. But what I love most is that this book goes further than just a basic worksheet. At the bottom of each worksheet, there is an easy, fun activity to reinforce and make the concepts come alive. It usually uses things such as index cards, crayons, etc. that you probably have around the house anyway. I have found it is more fun for my kids to use other items that would normally be thrown in the trash (such as different colored drinking screw caps as counters) instead of buying counters or blocks from the store. You can get as creative as you want, and spend as little or as much time as your child needs. I always say something such as, "After we do this worksheet, we are going to play the game it suggests." Both my kids get excited and think math is a big fun game. Very very happy with this workbook!!

My kindergarten-aged children like these books from Singapore Math a little better than their other series. They like the pictures and there is not as much "busy work" with cutting and pasting. I started out with the other series and moved to this one, however, both are very good. With boys, I found this series was more interesting to them.
