TouchMath Kinder - Getting Started

We've gotten the TouchMath Homeschooling Kindergarten curriculum to try out for the year.  CJ used the TouchMath PreK curriculum for the past 2 years and I felt that it was one of the most comprehensive PreK curriculums out there.  Check out my review of it here. Were were excited to get the Kindergarten curriculum in our hands and start putting it to work.  We took it along with us on vacation as a little extra brain work during down time.
I like that the TouchMath Kinder pulls in many different science mini lessons into the math lessons.  They talk about a nautilus shell and penguins being birds for example.  The Kinder starts simple enough, starting with tracing the numbers and doing dot-to-dot type activities.  CJ is still struggling with the tens (like 30, 40, 50, etc) and asks what comes next for almost all tens.  Upon being told the tens he can count to 100 by 1's. I'm looking forward to using the TouchMath Kinder and hope that it addresses his misunderstandings in depth rather than just glossing over the concept.  Time will tell!
