I thank RightStart Math for making a subject like math fun. It definitely makes it more interesting and helps your kids to learn it more quickly.

What makes RightStart Math special?
My favorite and I’m going to guess my kids’ favorite thing about RightStart Math would be that they are making math fun! The lessons book includes everything you need for fun, learning with your kids, including what worksheet to out of the workbook, when to use the Yellow is the sun disc, when to play (which) game.
If you remember I shared all that you get in the RS2 Math Set that we got with our curriculum choices? it included everything we need to learn, and to learn hands-on. To have fun with games in each lesson.
The 2nd Edition Level B math is about continuing to build a strong foundation with number sense. If you haven’t used their program for math in the past, you can start it at any time, this is our first year using it, and my oldest is using Level D this year (review coming at a later date).
RS Math Level B
- RightStart Math does this through quantity recognition and mental math strategies by grouping in 5s and 10s.
- Subtraction ( to 18)

The RightStart Math Level B bundle Second Edition comes with Lessons, Worksheets, Appendix, and Yellow is the Sun.
Level B Lessons continue to build a strong foundation with number sense through quantity recognition and mental strategies by grouping using the AL Abacus. RS2 Level B includes addition and subtraction facts to 18, place value to the thousands, geometry, measurement, time, money, and basic fractions.
Problem-solving and place value are emphasized throughout. Card games are included in the lessons. Review lessons are included for children new to the RightStart™ program.
Super Saver Option
RightStart also offers a Super Saver option that provides a more pared-down set of manipulatives. With this option, you’ll need to print and prep several more materials, though, too.
A fun, engaging math curriculum like this is going to set an amazing foundation for your child to learn. It is going to create a love of math, which is going to be important to have to go through your child’s education.
