Ray's for Today provides you with the time-tested content of the original Ray's Arithmetic series but in a format that's easier for homeschoolers to implement! This updated series is structured into daily lessons and grade levels and provides parents with additional help on presenting lessons, helping students grasp material, and adjusting the pace to your child's learning style.
Ray's for Today retains the emphasis on oral language, mental math, and math reasoning to help students build a practical understanding of underlying principles through orderly, systematic instruction. Lessons are presented in everyday language and move through three stages of exposure, practice, and mastery. Hands-on activities and visual 'walk-throughs' move students' understanding from concrete real-life examples to mental images and finally to abstract concepts. Real-life problem solving and story problems are also integrated throughout the text. Each level targets three to four essential skills, which are then reviewed and built upon in subsequent levels.
This kit contains both the student text and the instructor's manual for Level 2. The Student Text contains the teaching presentation in conversational form; the parent/teacher reads the lesson along with the child and guides the child's use of manipulatives and visuals.
The instructor's manual explains how to use the program, has background information for each unit teaching guidelines for each lesson, developmental benchmarks, learning style tips, and answer key. The appendix includes a readiness test, the previous level's benchmarks, the current level's scope and sequence and benchmarks, summer extension tips, additional cement mixers (mental math), and any manipulatives, game formats, and visuals that are needed for the lessons.
Both books are loose-leaf and three-hole-punched; parents may wish to place into a three-ring-binder (not included).
