Corrections - Do I need an answer key in 1A?

Not to discourage you, but in my opinion I don't think you need the key. I did buy the answer key to help my son learn to correct his own work. I found we NEVER use it. Since it's such basic math it seems much easier for me just to take a quick look.

Just my two cents.

I haven't used the answer key in 1-3. But in 4-6, it is quite nice.

Regarding the answer key from a non-math person... ;)

We've just finished with 2B and I simply LOVE the answer key!!! When you get to a five-six page review, you don't have to do all that in your head to check their work! Makes me happy...

The answer key saves you all the time of having to work out the problems yourself. It is not that you can't work them out at this level but that it is just a time saver. In 1A and 2B that may not be so much the case but I know that in 3B(where we started) I was glad I had it. You will find that the first answer key contains 1A-3B.

Here's my take on the answer key. I talked to someone about this at convention, and we both use it the same way.

After ds is done with his Singapore workbook, I have him call out the answers to me and I, with answer key in hand, can either respond "Great!" "Perfect!" or I can say, "Hmmm, wanna look at that one again?"

Ds likes this method much better than seeing a page with things marked "wrong" by me. And the quicker feedback I think must be better than waiting a day, as well.

Just another idea on using an answer key.

OOoh, I like that idea!!!!! (call out answer)

I was the one who was quick to say you don't need it, but remember I said I'm only in 1a, soo....I might not be the one to listen to in this case.

Have fun shopping!
Then the best part...opening the box!!!!!

Thanks for the idea, Julie and Crystal!
So that's why I've had the answer key sitting on my shelf for 2 years! lol!
My 2 y/o is trying to turn every room into a school room. I just saw that answer key a couple of days ago...and I have no idea where a stack of phonics review sheets are..
