Kumon Math and Reading
by Jason Fields
Kumon Math and Reading is a great supplement to the home school curriculum. Children visit the Kumon Center twice a week and complete the work at home the other 5 days. The assignments take around 15 to 20 minutes.
The great thing with Kumon is the daily practice and locking in the concepts through mastery. Children will not move forward unless they master a concept, then they use the concept throughout the program.
Children may advance well ahead of their classmates since they are in control of their progression through the curriculum. I started both of my children in Kumon when they turned 3 and they are well ahead of their classmates today.
Kumon was designed by a High School Math teacher to help his young son who was falling behind in math. You can visit the web page to learn more about Kumon Math and Reading. www.kumon.com
