Saxon Math Home School Curriculum


Building a solid foundation early-on is important for your child's future math success; Saxon math home school curriculum provides a proven and effective way for home schooling parents to accomplish this goal.

When I first started home schooling, I was completely overwhelmed with everything – especially when it came to choosing home school curriculum.

I took my daughter out of school mid-year which provided a few problems in and of itself; namely, no time to plan and no educational supplies to use to teach her.

Although I tried to use her workbooks from school, I didn't have the teaching manuals that went along with the work pages.

So Many Choices

When I finally attended a nearby home school curriculum fair a month later, my excitement about finding the perfect curriculum turned abruptly to discouragement. So many choices and as the day wore on, I felt increasing pressure to make a decision. I was so scared the day would end and I would go home empty-handed!

Saxon Math Home School Curriculum

Since I struggled with high school math, finding a good math curriculum was extremely important to me. I also didn't really know the first thing about teaching second grade math, so I made a quick goal to at least find a math program for my daughter.

After listening to everyone's spiels, Saxon home school math quickly became the winner!

Why did I choose Saxon home school curriculum?

The Deciding Factor

While taking a break to eat and peruse my homeschool conference bag, stuffed with all my goodies, I pulled out all the math brochures and fliers I had picked up from each table.

I lined them up and started reading.

Was the program easy to use? How much did each program cost? Would my daughter like it? Would it give her a good foundation for future math success?

These were some of the questions I asked myself.

Luckily, I didn't have to figure everything out alone, or wait too long for answers.

Answered Questions!

After breathing a little prayer for help, two women (angels!) sat down at my table with their children. I quietly listened to their conversation wanting to learn all I could about home schooling and waiting for the right moment to ask their opinion. Surely they could provide me some guidance.

To my delight, their conversation quickly drifted to math!

I asked the first question that almost everyone asks when meeting a fellow homeschooler... "What curriculum do you use?" :)

They both used Saxon Math home school curriculum! Do you know what else?

Their husbands were both math teachers! One was a high school math teacher and the other was a college math professor – a double blessing... and both highly recommend Saxon!

Saxon Math Home School

I figured if two math teachers used Saxon for their home schooling families, it had to be good.

The second grade Saxon Math home school kit was the first home schooling product I ever purchased and I am still using it with my little ones to this day! :)
