    WE're using Saxon this year, but I'm still up in the air on it.

    I"m with you on having way too much math curricula. But the one that I have been able to use consistently use was Singapore due to its simplicity and ease of use. It did bore K when I asked her to do the workbook pages so this year we've skipped all of that. We go after the concepts and then apply hands-on materials to teach and solve. As a proof of understanding, I ask her to do the Challenging Word Problems. That has worked well because she is less bored by word problems and hates repetition. May I suggest more work with hands-on materials? I find the Montessori materials to be ideal for even teaching long division.

    Maybe she daydreams because the questions are either too easy or too tedious to think? Not sure, just a possibility. I have no choice, I have to use Singapore Math because I live in Singapore! LOL. I personally think Singapore Math can sometimes be testing your comprehension more than mathematical knowledge!

    I have a day dreamer as well so this was very encouraging for me! We have been using Math U See, switch to Saxon this year, and hated it because it was so much calendar stuff. So, we switched back to Math U See. We also read Life of Fred and enjoy it!

    We switched from MUS to RS. Dear son was just not really getting place value. So far, so good! He was reluctant to switch but is glad we did!
