Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
Page A Day Math and other resources were created by a mom in pursuit of giving children the confidence and skills to exceed in math. We were given the opportunity to try out their digital downloads in our homeschool.
Review page a day math
We use many digital products in our homeschool. Page a Day Math was very easy to navigate compared to others I have come across. Their website is simple. The download was instantly sent to my email and I have had no issues being able to access the products.
Page A Day Math was designed to be just like it says, a page a day. When children are learning their math facts repetition really helps them to remember and gain confidence as a student.
Page A Day Math offers elementary packages including:
- Addition Starter Kit
- Subtraction Starter Kit
- Multiplication Starter Kit
- Division Starter Kit
- Handwriting Starter Kit
The physical book kits are meant to serve children to grab on their own and do a page a day. The digital downloads can be used the same way, however, mom needs to print them off and make sure the child is able to get to the next page easily.
Digital products are growing in popularity for a number of reasons. First of all, they are reusable. If you have multiple children, it makes it simple to use with all of them instead of having to purchase more materials when the next child is learning their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
There are a few ways you could organize your digital download:
- Binder, then your child completes a page at a time
- Paper Tray, that your child grabs the top page working down the stack
- Individual days/weeks with a folder: parent gives child worksheet
My boys need direction so giving them a sheet works for me. However, we are working on independence in our daily rhythm routine so I will be utilizing a binder/folder approach while selectively picking the pages I want them to do.
That brings me to my next point. I like the simplicity of the program. However, the pages seemed best for a child actively learning that key math skill. So for my older son(8) who is learning multiplication and division, but still needs a review of subtraction and addition, I would have to go in and print from previous products to do so.
I would like to see more elementary bundles of all of the facts. Or see facts built upon previous facts learned every few pages. For example, a combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. There are reviews of the current facts being learned in the last 2 days per book.
We ordered the addition starter kit, subtraction starter kit, and multiplication starter kit. Each book contains 14 days and each kit contains around 10-13 books. That is 140-168 days so depending on a 4 or 5 day school week, you could do up to 3 kits per year. Or, you can stretch them out and do addition with k, subtraction with 1st, multiplication with 2, and division with 3.
However, for parents not finding out about the program until their child is in 3rd grade, it would be great for an all-around math bundle that encompasses lots of facts. They do offer this bundle, however, it includes only numbers 1-12.
I would recommend these products to families with early elementary. They are simple to use, and if you buy the digital downloads you can swap out and make your own how you like it.
The pages are perfect length for children to do on their own and build their confidence level.
