Week 15

This week Hannah started Saxon 6/5.  Yep.  We've been following the Robinson Curriculum method of using Saxon for mastery and wow, can I just tell you how impressed I am with the results.  Amazing.  By the way, it's made amazing by the fact that Hannah is only 6 { although she will be 7 in a couple of weeks }.

These days she does a lesson a day.  She hasn't had to re-do any lessons yet { she scores too high - like in the 90's }.  Then in the afternoons for FUN and POCKET MONEY I let her do a few CTC Maths online lessons.  Yesterday alone set me back 50 cents - that's 5 lessons.When I first started paying them for the online lessons I thought 20 cents a lesson would be ok, but I had to drop it because of the amount of lessons they wanted to do.

  1. Wow! That's wonderful Hannah is starting Saxon 65 at 6. Did you use Saxon 54 or jump straight into Saxon 65?

    1. Hi Sara,

      Yes, we used Saxon 5/4 first. Before that we did Rod and Staff 1, 2 and 3. She does a LOT of math. She also spent a fair amount of time doing multiplication / division flash cards.


I really appreciate you taking the time to visit and leave me messages. Thanks so much.
