Math Curriculum by Zearn


  First step in creating your own  curriculum is to determine your child’s learning style and your teaching style (there are several online questionnaires that can help you with this).  Do you want t use textbooks or online resources?  Do you want to use Common Core standards or Singapore math?

Our Answers to these questions:

  • Kinesthetic  Learner  – My child’s learning style
  • Online Learning  –  My teaching style
  • Singapore Math –  Math standard

Next step is to find your resources.  I researched several  options to fit our math needs and found Zearn grades 1-5.  I was shocked to find this free online resource.  Each lesson has a learning video, games and worksheets.  For us, this is an amazing find.

We are using as our main curriculum .  We supplement with games, YouTube videos and worksheets when extra work is needed.    I was not able to find any documentation that states that Zearn is based on Singapore math but the number bonds and other grade 1 materials are the same.
