My 8yo is almost done with the entire Miquon series, (yes he likes math, we are still working on the writing though Very Happy ).
My question is what do we do after that? Any suggestions? 8 is a little young to start pre-algebra isn't it? Any ideas?

I know this is an old topic, but can you please tell me about your experience with miquon math? I am interested for my 2nd grade son. Thanks!

Miquon was wonderful but has a few down sides as all curricula do. ON the upside, the problems are large and clear so it is better for the child to be able to see and write was they need to. It is inexpensive and easy to find. It 'sneaks' in harder concepts in ways that really don't surprise the student. That way it isn't a sudden "ok now we are studying Multiplication", instead they really just lead into it from addition so the transitions are very smooth. It can be done in almost any order so the student has more independence.

The down side is that the word problems and real world application isn't there as much as it should be. So you should really supplement with some more word problems. This is easy to find online, and usually free.

I hope this helps. My son that doesn't need a lot of repetition on subjects really did well with the series and finished it is half the time needed. He even asked to do it on weekends! My son that needs more repetition and constant review couldn't use it. I hope that I covered it all for you.
