Summer Study Program Jan 7, 2009
Great Product! We bought these books for our kids to study over the summer break (worked out to about five pages a day, 20-30 minutes). They were well prepared for their next grade and were both Honor Roll students. We have done the summer study programs four years in a row now...
I wish it were organized differently. Dec 14, 2008
This is a nice work book to supplement my second graders online curriculum, but I wish it were organized like my six graders book of the same title.
The second grade version (at least the one I received, which has a different cover as the one I ordered - same title) is organized by a daily work guideline rather than subjects. For example, the second grade book will have math, language, reading, etc, in the first couple of pages, and then repeat another group of daily subjects. There are, however, some nice unit type studies. My six graders workbook of this title is grouped according to subject. Math is in a group, reading comprehension in a section, grammar, etc. That is a more logical way to organize a book of this size.
I will be using this 2nd grade book, but it requires more work on me to find the right material to give her on any given day than it would have had it been organized by subject.
Great Summer Bridge Workbook Jun 9, 2008
We've used these workbooks for several summers to help bridge the school year through the summer. It is colorful and fun for the kids. One of the best workbooks.
Excellent, clearly laid out, good skills level targetting Sep 22, 2005
I like this book. My 6 year old likes this book. We love the variety, so if you have to do some 'academic' work in your plan for the day, but dont feel like doing spelling, you can flip to the reading chapter, to the maths chapter, to the comprehension chapter. Its very clearly laid out, its fun (where a lot of Grade 2 material can be made to look pretty boring)and looks fun, and seems to cover most of the basics. It is NOT a be all and end all for a Grade 2-er, but for someone not following a set curriculum, this is a great provider of material so you know you are covering your bases. It could also be a great top-up if for some reason you need to top up what is happening at your school, or for example to cover in a summer. I would really recommend this.
good, solid workbook Sep 10, 2005
Although there have been some negative reviews in this series, I have personally found this book to be very through and helpful to my 6 year old. It covers the core subjects for 2nd graders such as reading, language arts, spelling, and math. They all well presented, except the math part is a bit easy for my son. Not uncommon as grade levels in different states are different.
I think the set up of a certain number of pages per day is convenient, and just the right amount to keep his interest. The colors and pictures are great, and the price is right! I especially like the teaching suggestions in the back of the book - giving you the option of doing as little or as much as YOU feel comfortable doing on any given subject with your child.
For math, I find the Beestar worksheets (a nice web site at www.beestar.org) suit my son better. But overall, this is very good workbook. I fully intend to continue using this series as long as I can.
