We love RightStart Math! :o) The lessons are short so that will not cause any problems. Also, they run the gamut from being visual, auditory, kinesthetic, etc so all types of learners will benefit. I have started A with my DS (4 yrs old, will also be starting K next Fall) and he enjoys it (he is wiggly so we do not do it every day or every week for that matter, we are on lesson 10 maybe, I have started doing more living math w/ him too). The reason I started it now was because he does simple addition and subtraction in his head and I wanted to get him thinking in math *this* way instead of having to later go back and reteach him, what is what I'm sort of doing with my DD (my DD had no problems w/ math and was actually advanced in math for her age, but I think the RS way of math is more effective than what she naturally was doing).

I just can't say enough how pleased I am with how RS approaches concepts (I am having so many "ah ha" moments myself!).
