Today we are comparing two very popular homeschool math curriculums; Math Lessons for a Living Education Level K and The Good and the Beautiful Math Level K. These two homeschool math curriculums are quite different so I think you will enjoy seeing the comparison and I think it will help your decision making.
This post has been highly requested; we will be looking inside of the homeschool math curriculums: the good and the beautiful math level k and math lessons for a living eduction level k and level So many of you have asked me to do this comparison video, so I am happy to finally have it completed for you! Comparing these two homeschool math curriculums is difficult because they are vastly different.
I do want to point out that this post/video is not sponsored in any way. I purchased all of these curriculums with my own money and the thoughts and opinions are my own. This comparison is not to praise one math curriculum and bring down another, it is simply intended to inform fellow homeschooling parents so they can make great decisions for their families. I really hope it’s helpful to you!
The good and the beautiful is heavy workbook and activities. The good and the beautiful math level k comes with a large manipulative kit and you use the manipulatives in almost every lesson. The good and the beautiful math level k also covers a very large amount of material and in my personal opinion, seems very advanced for a kindergarten math curriculum. The lessons can take quite a while to complete. In the video I talk about what the curriculum covers throughout the course, as well as a look inside at a sample lesson for you to see.
Math lessons for a living education is a much more gentle approach. This curriculum is more “Charlotte Mason” styled and your child will learn math as they follow a darling story of twins, Charlie and Charlotte. They learn the basic math concepts through everyday life situations. Each lesson has a story and then there are worksheets to complete each day of the week. Math lessons for a living education level k covers much more basic concepts than TGATB Level K. In this video I talk about what is covered in MLFLE Level K and where your child will be once they complete the book. And because I think it’s helpful, I also briefly go over the math lesson for a living education level 1 in this video to give you further information, to make your decision easier.
