Summer Program Study Guides 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...
Good for English exposure Aug 20, 2008
I live overseas with my kids and they attend a local school in another language (their third language). I feel good about the level of education in general, but want my kids to also maintain their mother tongue of English. They read a lot, including in English, but rarely have the occasion to write. These books are great for age-appropriate writing opportunities for kids in this situation. I don't dictate how much they do, or that they finish them, but they often take the initiative to do a few pages on days they don't have homework from school.
Great Teaching Tool Mar 15, 2007
Nice visual supports. Reading passages are at the grade level reported. I teach Specific Learning Disabled English Language Learners in Middle School and these books are the best supports. 95% of my students are able to complete the activities independently. Great tools for fostering literal and inferential comprehension as well as basic math skills. I am using these to support Language Arts and Math instruction. Students are assigned 20 pages per week. Each grade level has some repetition of subject, scaffolding instruction to a higher level.
Very challenging, not something the kids can do themselves Jul 21, 2004
I bought this for my step-daughter because she didn't do as well in school last year as she should have. Partially because of the school, but I thought that this would give her a head start. She was frustrated most of the time because she didn't know anything. There are parts where you have to use prior knowledge about things and write about it and she didn't have any prior knowledge. Another thing was that she had to write essays about things, I don't remember writing essays on things until I was in Junior High, so that was also frustrating. You pretty much had to have a dictionary and encyclopedia in front of you the entire time. The math section was good, it was pretty much self explanatory. Most of the time I had to play teacher because she just didn't understand and it confused me! I just wanted them to sit down with their books and do them, not to play school!
A little extra homework Apr 6, 2000
This is a good book to use with homework assignments. My son does a page a day along with his homework and I see a difference in his grades. Great practice for the State Grade Tests. If your child needs to sharpen his basic skills, this is the book.
