Dear Valued Customer,

We pray that you will enjoy your time spent with Little Hearts for His Glory. We regret that as of today our Earlybird Kindergarten Math 2A/2B stock is completely gone. It has flown off of our shelves much more quickly than anticipated, so there will be some lagtime before we have our new math plans for kindergarten completed. A new math schedule will be forthcoming for Little Hearts for His Glory after our newest guide, Missions to Modern Marvels, is shipped in mid-September. We appreciate your patience during this time!

We anticipate having our new math selection for kindergarten in place and our math plans done for the new selection at the end of September. We realize that many of you are likely beginning your school year before this date, so you have several options that you can consider for math until the plans are complete.

One option would be to just follow the math plans that are in the Little Hearts guide each day, doing the scheduled hands-on activity and then doing some additional work along the same lines as the activity on a markerboard. On the days where there is no activity, you could review the previous day's activity. This would allow you to have a gentle start to math and give you a plan to follow while waiting until the kindergarten math plans are complete at the end of September.

If you prefer to begin your formal math program before this, then a second option would be to consider doing either of the other two choices for math offered by the U.S. based Singapore company. These choices include either doing the new Earlybird Standards Edition Kindergarten Mathematics or the Essential Math for Kindergarten. We will likely use one of these two choices for our new math plans.

If you choose to use the Earlybird Standards Edition Kindergarten Mathematics, you will only need to purchase Textbook A and Textbook B. The rest of the materials that go with that program are for a classroom setting and will not be needed in a home setting. If you choose to use the Essential Math Kindergarten Mathematics, you will need Book A and B. These materials can be ordered directly from the Singapore website until we decide what we will stock and carry through Heart of Dakota. The Singapore website can be found here: http://www.singaporemath.com.

Here is a link to the section of the website needed for Singapore kindergarten math: http://www.singaporemath.com/Pre_K_Math_s/20.htm.

Any of the options mentioned above will prepare your child well for the Singapore Primary Mathematics 1A/1B that is scheduled within the Beyond Little Hearts guide.

You can watch our website for updates to the math at the end of September. This will be the location for the update: http://www.heartofdakota.com/singapore.php.

We pray that the Lord may richly bless your school year!

Blessings,

Mike and Carrie Austin
