Grade 1 ThemeVille Math Review

{Disclaimer:  I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review.  I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.}

F has started working through Grade 1 of ThemeVille Math.  We were blessed to receive the physical worktext and the complete solutions book.

ThemeVille Math is a complete math curriculum for homeschoolers, classrooms, CoOps and even tutors.  There are five levels representing 1st-5th grade.

If you know me, then you know I love looking at the scope within programs.  The scope for Grade 1 in ThemeVille Math includes counting in groups of 10s/5s/1s, place values of 1s and 10s, addition and subtraction within 20, measurement of length, operations with number line and colored rods, partitioning and comparison of numbers, money, hundreds chart, numerals and words, skip counting (forward and backward), word problems, and ordinal numbers.

G loves to watch!

The worktext is thick (590 pages plus an appendix, see photo above) and includes 120 daily pre-lessons, 120 daily lessons, and 10 tests.  I was slightly worried when I noticed that the entire book was in black and white but there is something beautiful about the simplicity of this.  F is really enjoying it and doesn't mind that there isn't any color so it has been a nonissue.  The tests can be used to help you determine an overall grade if needed and monitor your students progress.

There are also online videos for each lesson that you have access to as needed.  Above you can see the videos for the first few lessons.

The format of this program is straight forward.  F completes the pre-lesson (which is a review) and then the daily lesson.  We talk about anything he needs help with but he always works on his lessons independently.  He sometimes watches the lesson videos as well.  I leave it up to him.

 F watching the video lesson for counting money.  I pulled out our money manipulatives for him to use!  He was super excited.

Here's the solution page for this lesson found in our solutions book.

We love manipulatives around here so I really appreciate that the worktext has optional activities for students to do using manipulatives.  The solutions book makes grading easy peasy as it contains answers for the pre-lessons, lessons and tests.  F is really enjoying this program.  If you are looking for a simple math curriculum for your student in grades 1st-5th, I would recommend checking out ThemeVille Math.

That ThemeVille Math workbook sounds like a great idea to introduce to the kids. I'm sure they'll have fun solving all those math problems.
