Bought this for my 3.5-year-old, but will have to return it, as it is way too easy. I am not entirely sure how it stacks up to the British Columbia kindergarten curriculum, as I haven't yet had a child in kindergarten, but my sense is that most kids acquire most of the skills in this book long before kindergarten. It only covers the very basics of reading: initial and final consonants, and short vowels.

This could be a good book for a preschooler, to introduce basic math and literacy concepts.

Good start, not enough depth June 5 2011
By Lizzi - Published on
I have used several of these books now since January. The 4 year old that used this book (previous edition, but I scanned through the updates at Sam's Club and there don't appear to be any big changes) has shown significant progress. She started without being able to write any letters or numbers and without being able to identify any written numbers. Within the last 5 months and fully completing this book, and some supplementary reading lessons she is able to recognize and write numbers 1-14 fluently as well as recognize most letters although she struggles with the sounds that many of them make. She grew bored of all the coloring in the book and started scribbling instead of coloring on some of the pages (which I allowed as long as she scribbled or circled only the ones starting with the correct letter).
The one thing that is frustrating is that there aren't many reading lessons built into the workbook. However the last few pages assumes that the child can read. In addition, the first grade book goes to fast with the assumption of reading for the beginning reader. There needs to be a smoother bridge for this series. Also the first grade book (both this addition and the previous edition) have some sheets which have confused both children with the subtraction problems as they draw out objects for the numbers on both side of the subtraction sign. Those should really be revamped (for the one that already new subtraction I told her to ignore the pictures and just look at the problems and for the one just learning subtraction I crossed out all of the second set of pictures and had her cross out the number of pictures that we were subtracting using the numbers in the problem).

For the struggling first grader in first grade the first grade book worksheets are either too easy or really hard. The first grade book doesn't have enough word problems (she does word problems that include multiplication and division at school and this doesn't stand up to it). However, lessons like the clock lessons made her have a great day while other students in her class were struggling with it. She (and her grandmother when she visited) really struggled with parts of it like the synonym unit and which one doesn't belong because they aren't always straight-forward for some
people -- like what is a synonym for "dimes"? Coins, change, money, do you teach how to come up
with stuff like that to someone else? Or that you can list a type of store for a synonym to it (not 100% true, but what the book expects).

Once you get past the super-fast reading primer the first grade book looks similar to the second grade book (with more reading in a paragraph form for the second grade book).

Not a Curriculum, Just a workbook. Misleading title Nov. 7 2013
By Momof2 - Published on
Verified Purchase
This workbook has lots of pages that are appropriate for "Grade K."
However, it's not a "Comprehensive Curriculum"
If it were just a workbook, I would have given it a better score but I think the title is misleading.
It's not a curriculum at all and to label it comprehensive is completely false advertising.
We do like it as a workbook.

Great guide for homeschooling kindergarten! Aug. 20 2013
By A. Drewes ❤ Product Reviewer - Published on
I love having this book to help keep us on track since we're homeschooling Sophia, who is in kindergarten this year. This keeps us up with everything she should learn for her kindergarten year. Much of it is a review of things she learned in pre-k while adding in new materials. It has a variety of worksheets and also has the answers in the back if you need it. Definitely a favorite for us to work from!

Great Way To Keep Your Child Sharp Over School Breaks Nov. 21 2015
By sgebhard - Published on
Mostly I write about children's books but today we are taking a little detour. My daughter is in Kindergarten and loves it! But she is always looking for more worksheets to practice her math with. The Comprehensive Curriculum of Basic Skills Grade K is perfect for this! There is over 400 pages of worksheets for your child to discover.

Each worksheet is similar to what she has been working on in school. There are pages asking her to fill in the missing letter in a simple word, connect the dots to make a picture, several pages with various directions for her to follow like circle the item that is full. The book is separated into sections. There are four sections in the book; Mathematics Readiness, Numbers and Counting, Time and Money and Patterns, Graphing and Thinking Skills. There is even an answer key, though this is Kindergarten work so I'm sure you'll be fine without it.

There's even a developmental skills checklist so you can assess your child's needs at the beginning before starting the book. And then once you've completed the book you can look back and see how far they have come. I like to use this book with my daughter at home to help keep her skills sharp. This would be perfect to use over those long breaks we have coming up or over the summer to keep your child's skills sharp.
