We are curently doing Singapore 1A & 1B. I need to know if all the things covered in these two books will be reviewed again, such as grouping 10's for adding, and everything covered in 1B.

I don't want to keep adding worksheets to have my dd know this. I need to know if these concepts keep coming around again. More worksheets per day will drive her batty and just burn her out. I'd prefer to know that these concepts will be reviewed often. I have the scope and sequence and it looks like they don't Shocked If I look at the Saxon scope and sequence they review this in every year, which is what my dd needs. She'll need to drop it for a while and come back to it if she doesn't get it, not just give her more worksheets to do.

Whoever has used the elementary levels, how does this pan out? My dd needs review. I love Sinapore's out of the box thought process but it won't work if we have to just keep adding worksheet after worksheet.

Thanks

We really like A beka math. There are just a few problems of multiple types on each worksheet. For example, there will be 3 or 4 division problems, 3 multiplication problems, 2 story problems, a few fraction problems, a few measurement problems, and perhaps a time problem on each page. In other words, multiple concepts, but in small doses, are on each worksheet. Therefore, there's not much need for review since all concepts are ongoing. It also makes the worksheets very tolerable for those who bore easily.
