The Saxon Math Kindergarten Teacher's Manual is the cornerstone of this homeschool curriculum. In includes detailed daily lesson plans for a full year of kindergarten math instruction. This is one of the most detailed kindergarten math teacher books available anywhere with 4 to 6 pages per lesson. Saxon has done the work, preparing each day's lesson and laying it all out so the teacher has less preparation work to do; just follow the instructions provided. The Teacher Manual uses the Saxon Math philosophy of spiral review, wherein all previously learned concepts are incorporated into new lessons throughout the entire year. Topics are never dropped but are instead increased in complexity and practiced every day, providing the time required for concepts to become totally familiar.
