"All kids are smart - though they learn at their own speed
All kids learn best when they're having fun
All kids deserve the chance to reach their potential - given the tools they need, there's no limit how far they can go!"
I agree, while presuming to add that children will learn more and have more fun meanwhile if, when completing various exercises, adults are involved. As a parent of four and a grandparent of ten, I can personally attest to the pleasure an adult will also have. Each volume in the series is a WORK book. Exercises are completed with crayolas or pencils on the page on which it appears. Correct answers are provided. One caveat: Resist the temptation to control the learning process a child completes an exercise.
This volume, Grade 1 (ages 6-7), was written by Lisa Trumbauer, with Betsy Rogers serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that Rogers was 2003 National Teacher of the Year. The material consists of organized curriculum-based exercises that help children to gain an understanding of phonics, spelling, vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, sequencing and sorting, math skills, addition and subtraction, shapes and measurement, time and money, social studies, and science.Read more ›
I have to say i'm really, really pleased. Too bad that there's only one book (and not several volumes) as i anticipate we'll be through this one in just a few months, easily.
Sitting with my son to do these pages at home has helped me to know that he's got his letter sounds down (teacher thought otherwise). Also his numeracy and measurement skills are a quick win. (Again, teacher thought otherwise.)
AND (to give his teacher some credit) now i know why she thought he had rocks for brains. Child does not want to sit still for anything. Doing these one on one i'm constantly bringing him back to task and reminding him of the rules/constraints for the exercise on the page. Yes he can complete and accurately too most of the time - but he is not ready to sit still. As a result, he performs poorly at school.
He was not eager to start with me initially when the books arrived. However, after a few rounds he decided to try "doing some pages" without me one day - and then we could check them together. (He quickly abandoned that plan when he realized he didn't know what the instructions were for the page - he doesn't read yet.Read more ›
