My girls loved this curriculum
Review by Ashley
I’ve had two girls go through this curriculum and both loved it! They loved the stories and actually motivated them to work through their lessons to get to the next story.
Review by Tailored Homeschool
Master Books is definitely where faith grows! All the curriculum I have used blows my mind in how it helps me disciple my children. Highly recommend them

We love math kinder! My boy is 4 and doing amazing with it! So fun engaging, and it sticks!
Kindergarten math
Review by Raina
This math program is so much fun to teach. My daughter really has enjoyed Charlotte and Charlie and the fun engaging lessons.
Great starter Math book!
Review by Eileen
This is a great book for just introducing kids to Math; I started my youngest later with it. Come to realize it was way too easy for him, but it built the foundation, so I’m thankful for that. He will be soaring through level 1!
Gentle curriculum for little kids
Review by Jamie
My youngest son is technically in preschool but he is breezing through this curriculum and loving it. I hope he continues to enjoy the math curriculums as much as he does this one.
My only regret was not starting sooner
Review by Charity
My 1st daughter never really had a math curriculum for K, and really struggled when it was time to dig deep into 1st grade. We went through 4 different curriculum and many tears before we started gaining any traction. I knew I did not want that for my other children, but I didn't want to overwhelm them either.

I was very pleased at how gentle and developmentally appropriate Math K was. We also loved all the great conversations Charlie and Charlotte's family had together. I was so impressed that immediately also switched my other Daughter to MB math and she started to thrive!

We have are now in Piggy Math with my 2nd and she is ready to dive deep into place value and more. My only regret is that I wish i had started K sooner. I held off until 5.5 but she could have easily done the program sooner.

Fun & Engaging
Review by Johanna
Math: Level K was fun & engaging for my kids and they learned the math concepts well. I appreciate the various ways of learning math concepts including mazes, cooking recipes, and kinesthetic activities.

One important thing we found to do is to laminate the “Shape Practice Sheet” at the back of the book, like the author suggests, and have your child practice that before starting the lessons about shapes. Lesson 30 also has a very helpful sheet on how to draw shapes. My oldest son, who tends to understand math concepts easily, struggled so much learning how to draw shapes. When my second child started Math K, we knew to start practicing the shapes worksheet in the beginning of the school year to avoid the frustrations of learning this new concept. Lesson learned!

Overall, this is a great book and I would suggest this to anyone who is looking for a kindergarten Math curriculum.
Level 1 was best for my son but this would be great for many children
Review by Jessie
I debated on whether to use this or math lessons level 1 with my kindergartener. I didn't want level k to be so easy he was bored but I also was afraid to skip it and that level 1 may be developmentally more advanced with too much writing or concentration needed. He has always been very "advanced" and he knew everything listed in the level k scope and sequence and a lot of level 1. If he had been at a typical 5 year old level in math I wouldn't have debated at all and would've just got level k. I ended up going with level k but for him it wasn't just a good review, or a way to ease into "school", it was feeling like a waste of our time so I let him zoom through it as fast as he could. We finished in 3 months and then started level 1. It was much more appropriate for him and we were pleased with it. He enjoys the stories of the twins. The lessons are simple and to the point which is great for me with severe chronic illness. For a lot of 5 year old's I'd say this level would be perfect for kindergarten. I recommend and appreciate this book is biblical without crossing lines on doctrine.
Sweet Kindergarten Curriculum
Review by Betsy
I have used this math curriculum with two children. It was always a happy time and never a fight to complete it. The stories are precious and I love the fact that the Bible is interwoven with math. My friend, an AP Calculus teacher, chose this curriculum for her children and I followed her lead.
I have been homeschooling for over 14 years and have homeschooled a total of 9 children.
I do agree that this is on the easier side, but I have to ask why that is a problem. This entire series prepares children for Master Books’ Principles of Mathematics Volumes 1 and 2. There is nothing wrong with a gentle approach to mathematics (or any subject). If you are concerned, I would definitely look at the placement guide.
Great Product
