I am not normally one to completely give up on something right out of the starting gate. But about 2 years ago, I gave up on kindergarten math about 3 lessons in. Yep. 3 lessons. I thought we could go back later, when I had a little more patience. Later ended up being an entire year. We said good-bye to kindergarten math and we never looked back. Two years later and one kid more in kindergarten and I have absolutely no regrets.
Is it time for you to say good-bye to kindergarten math, too? Or should you not even waste your time, energy, and money on a math curriculum for your kindergartner? I don’t know. But I don’t mind sharing my thinking behind this epiphany to help you decide.
