Homeschool season is starting up, and we’re back to choosing our math curriculum and while I have tried (and will continue to try) several math curricula, I find that my children always want to come back to the ease of a certain homeschool math curriculum: CTCMath.
This is a compensated post between Houseful of Nicholes and CTCMath. As usual, all opinions are my own, and I’m not required to give a favorable review, but I am.
I’ve covered quite a bit in my posts with a CTCMath Curriculum Review here and there over the years, but today, I want to tell you 3 reasons you need to go ahead and press purchase on the homeschool family membership. My reasons may seem a bit simplistic, but honestly, isn’t that all we really want as we teach our children to love learning in every area of school?
I’m not sure about you, but math has never been my strong suit – and I’m not embarrassed to say that. I’ve always maintained that my loves have always been reading, writing, and science (not chemistry) so when I find an online offering that not only explains math in a way that my children understand but that I understand too, we’re all good.
3 Reasons CTCMath is perfect for your homeschool
The entire family can learn for an affordable price
When you purchase a math curriculum from CTCMath, you can get the homeschool family membership and be done in one fell swoop. This means that you can have all of your children on their own levels with the same curriculum for one price. No need to search high and low for the perfect math program. Given that I have children working on different levels of math, I can confidently assign them their lessons and daily work and move on to the next planning sessions.
While multi-child learning is great, I think an even better draw is the fact that CTCMath is an affordable option for new and veteran homeschool families alike. There is absolutely no need for homeschoolers to spend a fortune in order to teach their students. Needing to purchase a curriculum for the rest of your subjects and field trips is rather important.
You don’t have to be a mathematician
The way that the math units are presented makes quite a bit of sense. With different variations for providing the information necessary for your children to advance in math levels, there is a learning option for everyone.
I’ve often stated that Mother Nicholes (my youngest daughter) is a fan of workbooks and worksheets. She says there is something about being able to hold her pencil and complete the work that she likes. She also prefers physical books over reading on a Kindle or another electric device.
Her twin brother likes for lessons to be taught TO him while my oldest daughter prefers to read through her lessons to process.
CTCMath provides all of these options for children and even includes math games that they can play to strengthen their math wisdom.
Recordkeeping is a breeze
I know that I’m going to have to get better at keeping proper records for my children. I tend to lean more towards programs that keep them for me. My home life is a bit too busy to spend the time necessary to manually keep every bit of information when it comes to homeschool. I know that there are parents who LOVE all of the paperwork, but too much gives me a bit of anxiety and I don’t function well, and then I turn into the teacher that no one wants around.
There are checklists for those of you who love them though! Each grade has a comprehensive list of every module available in each level. That way you can keep track manually when your child starts a unit and when they finish it.
The creators of CTCMath believe in the program so much that they are giving all homeschoolers half off right now! That’s less than $150 for your entire family for a full year!
If you’re not quite ready to buy, you can test out a trial to see if you and your students mesh well with it.
