I never used this program before this year and I find it: a) confusing to teach - I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how to present this material in a way that makes sense for my kids. b) ineffective c) confusing to learn (especially for special ed students who really need to practice and reinforce a skill before moving on) In a word, I hate it. My kids are separated into two groups so I have to try to figure this out for 2 different grade levels. To compound everything, I'm missing almost all the materials and really just have one copy of some (but not all of the consumables) and the teacher's manual. Everything else is "on order" for me. So how do I give them little pieces of math concepts, move on to something else the next day, and then revisit them and expect kids with significant learning disabilities to retain a concept that we barely touched on days or weeks ago? Shouldn't concepts be mastered? Shouldn't a teacher spend days or weeks on a skill until it is mastered before moving on to an entirely new topic that builds upon it? Any advice for making this program work - especially for kids with learning disabilities?
