Format: Paperback
This is one in a series of workbooks, each of which offers an abundance of learning activities, exercises, and games that are presented with superb production values. Appropriate to the given age level, much of the material focuses on basic subjects such natural science, mathematics, history, and social studies while enabling children to strengthen their reading, reasoning, and writing skills. The editors of Brain Quest believe that:

"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.

Our son enjoyed the short lessons with explanatory pictures and definitions in the side-bars. You can tear out the sheets without damaging the spine. The color-coded sections are helpful for navigating. We noticed some typos, but it is generally a good workbook for homeschoolers who need a short introduction or brief reinforcement on a particular topic.

short exercises, big pictures, short instructions. A variety of exercises in a surprisingly large depth of areas (social studies in grade 1, really!?).. and this is a FAT workbook. My son is very much enjoying the one-on-one time with me when we do a few exercises each night ("are we going to bed or doing some exercises first?" ... works every time!). Also, it gives me a chance to assess his abilities against a less arbitrary measurement (someone assembled "grade 1 level" material here, i have no benchmark expertise to pick out appropriately challenging tasks on my own).

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.

I bought this book for my daughter who I am homeschooling in kindergarten. She already has regular schoolwork but she really enjoys having a workbook (s) to do whenever she wants that isn't quite so structured. I thought of getting her the K one, but knew she was an advanced K, so went with this one. So far she just LOVES it and has no problem doing it, as long as I read any instructions she doesn't understand. Great value for money.

This book is fantastic - although some issues I have with it are for someone who is brand new to phonics and spelling and letter recognition - the letters are not always in the same font so a does not always look like a printed "a" - it sometimes looks like a typeset a - which is good after your child understands there are different ways to print the letter but when they struggle with it it adds to the confusion. It teaches a bit differently than I learned in school - for example long e sounds or long o sounds - I learned long "o" was for example 'roll' or "hold' but the book also teaches long "o" sounds to be "ow" (so combinations of ou )...I'm trying to adjust to this 'new' way - and it gives my children a lot more phonics than they learn in school. My daughter has already learned a greater understanding of letter and vowel sounds from doing 2 pages per night from this book than she has learned in 3 years of school.
