DD has coped very well with the lessons, with the exception of a full week of practice lessons, about 20 problems per day, that made her "hate math" by the end of that week. Thankfully, we finished practice and began measuring and suddenly she loved math again. So far, she's been able to quickly grasp all the concepts we've introduced.

My question is this: should we continue at this pace and get into 2B by end of March, or should I slow the pace to four days of lessons and one drill day so that we simply finish at the end of 2A?

What would you do??

Many thanks!

With my middle dd, she was ready for more math in 1st grade, so we went through the 1st grade rotation once and then moved into Singapore 1A and only finished part of the book. She finished Singapore 1A, 1B, and part of 2A in 2nd grade. She finished 2A and just moved into 2B in 3rd grade.

So, if I were you, I would just keep moving on. I love being "ahead" in our math books so that I can have a little wiggle room to spend extra time on hard topics or multiplication drill without feeling we're falling behind. (We're behind where you are, but for us, my middle dd is a bit ahead of where my eldest dd was at that age).

It certainly doesn't hurt to just keep moving through the lessons and the math books, and then you can afford to take some time off if you want to or just camp out on a topic that is harder in later years. I don't think you need to feel like you need to race ahead or anything. Just keep moving forward at a comfortable pace. Just one suggestion for you.
