Last year was our second year with 'Go Math'. Yes, a lot of
pages, but they go very quickly! I usually complete the large
book by the end of April and use the second book, which is a
review book, as RTI practice, send home as extra practice or
as a review for previously taught skills as needed throughout
the school year. Usually I have a few of those pages at the
end of the year to fill in during the last 4-5 weeks of school.
We were very concerned with the large booklets too, but it
turns out that we move through them quickly and the
manipulatives are and come with the program purchase.
Another hint.... I tear the large books into each unit so that
they are handled easier by the students. Yes, a little extra
work, but I prefer them in smaller sections. One of my
colleagues has his students use bookmarks to keep track of the
page they are working on.
