Through the B:1 lessons and workbook, students will be encouraged to strive for mastery of the 1-10 addition/subtraction facts. They will also learn more about the importance of godly character development through the continued study of the godly qualities of the Math Flashcards 1-10 animal families.

An Advanced K4, K5, or Beginning 1st grader can usually complete Math Levels A and B:1 in a year. Some K5/B1st students can also finish Level B:2. A few more advanced students have even finished Levels A, B, and C in a typical school year, or shortly thereafter. For the best results, teach in sequence according to whatever pacing lovingly challenges your student’s God-given capabilities.
