Ideally, if all things came together and the stars aligned and a magic fairy waved her wand and zapped my school supplies,… I’d be teaching Princess with a Saxon 2 Math book right now.

Alas, as the stars did not align, no fairy waved her wand, and God chose to bless me with an extra dose of ingenuity in lieu of plopping a book in my lap…here’s what we came up instead.

  1. I looked up the table of contents for the Saxon Math 2 book, to see what is covered.
  2. Then I search online for worksheets or games pertaining to the next concept and print some out and/or have her play them.
  3. If I have any questions about a chapter, I call my homeschooling friend who has a Saxon Math 2 book. I’m sure that you could go online and google a specific concept to find out more about it though.
  4. Once Princess has it we move on to the next

(Yes, it’s true that we’ve been hanging out on some extra addition practice for a while, but during that time I’ve continued on with new concepts like odd and even, rounding, measuring, graphing, temperature, etc.)

So that’s it. Homemade Saxon Math. Next year I’d much rather have the books, oh yes I would. I much prefer having all the work done for me! 😉 But for now… well, it works. It works just fine.

Hey, y’all! I’m Amber and I wear many hats. I drink a ton of coffee and I’m constantly sweeping crumbs off the floor. After 18 years of homeschooling, I’m getting close to graduating my third child and now we are starting over at preschool with our fourth, Lil Miss Mouse. She keeps us young and she’s the main reason for my excessive coffee consumption. Drink up!
