Homeschool math seems to be the biggest challenge to choose each year. We got to try out Pearson Homeschool enVisionMath this past month. Today I get to share all about it!
I received the Pearson Homeschool Curriculum for free in exchange for an honest review, however I was compensated for my time to review the products.
When we got our Pearson enVisionMath curriculum in the mail my daughter was so excited! She really loves getting new workbooks and school materials. She was just finishing up her other math for the year, so it was perfect timing to try something new. We do not do school year round in our home, but I do have my kids continue on with a few subjects to keep their minds fresh all year. Math is one subject I always like to have them keep up on. The Pearson curriculum became my daughter’s summer math, and her new favorite school book!
What is included in the Pearson Homeschool enVisionMath bundle?
The Pearson enVisionMath bundle included a Student Workbook, MindPoint Quiz Show CD-Rom, and a Teacher Edition Cd-Rom.
I was pleasantly surprised by the student workbook. It is not the standard size, but is twice as wide. They call it a tear-n’-take tablet, which seems more fitting than just calling it a workbook. At the beginning of the workbook, it tells kids to tear out each page and fold it in half as they work on it. They even tell them to hang it on the fridge when they are done! 🙂 This was exciting for my daughter because tearing out pages is usually a no-no!
The workbook is colorful with fun illustrations and eye-catching activities on every page. The lessons are organized by topics and then lessons within each topic. Each lesson has learning activities, word problems, and home connections and activities to do together. Also, with each unit there is a fun game board that you can pull out and play together to practice the skills they are learning in the book. This is our favorite part, of course!
There are these fun pages that are letters to your family telling them what you have been learning in the lessons. They also have recommended math storybooks to find at the library throughout the book. I was excited when I found my daughter with a little notecard writing them down today.
There are 20 topics covered in the first grade math including:
Along with the workbook they include the Quiz Show CD-Rom. This is a fun multi-media game to help kids practice the math they learn in their lessons. It tracks their learning and is a good assessment as well. It can be played in a multi-player mode, too. My daughter really enjoyed the quiz Show games!! It adds a good variety into into her regular lessons.
The Teacher’s edition has planning tips, lesson overviews, teaching tips, test answers, and ways to make the learning more interactive with your kids. It also includes printable activities including manipulatives, vocabulary cards, math stories, lesson masters and assessments.
What I love about this curriculum is that my daughter really is happy about doing her math again. She likes math but was struggling with it at the end of the school year. This book has helped her to be excited about it again. She loves the games and the time we spend together on the stories and activities. This is a great program for a more hands-on approach to math!!
