Reviews - What do customers think about Spectrum Language Arts, Grade 3?
Very Rote, Not Creative. Jul 29, 2009
Each topic of study has a two-page spread. Today my son is studying statements and commands, sentences that start with a capital letter and end with a period. The first page has a brief overview and some instructions, and then a paragraph which kids must edit for capitalization and periods. On the second page, children decide whether sentences are statements or commands, and then at the bottom of the page they write one statement and one command of their own. Both pages are about a lemonade stand. There is a color graphic of lemonade in the corner.
While these activities do give kids practice with the target skill, they are not at all interesting. this site here has an "about the author" saying that the author is Mercer Mayer. He is no longer the author. He had clever, witty paragraphs, poems, stories that kids could work with. Now the topics are somewhat boring for kids.
My son has trouble telling where one section ends and another starts; there is no demarcation between directions and activities.
This workbook will help kids prepare for standardized tests, but it will not give kids a love for language. Come back, Mercer Mayer!
Great Book! Jan 15, 2009
I own a few of the Spectrum series books. These are great and packed with a lot of activity worksheets. These books cover all aspects of the FCAT testing and make for great student practice. Even with shipping the price through this site can be lower than the education stores.
Language Arts workbook Sep 30, 2008
This book offers good information, but it wasn't really designed to help the way I needed it to. It seems like it would be more appropriate for someone who already had a good grasp of the concept, rather than someone who needs extra help mastering the concept. It seems more on the line of test preparation than strict practice.
Great Book!!! Jul 28, 2008
It is a great grammer review book. I bought to keep my son busy and in touch with study during summer. Even though sometimes he complaint that why he has to do it...:) I like the book as it explains rules so he can fully understand the concept!!!
Basic intro for first grade Jun 28, 2008
I bought this workbook for homeschooling my (will be) first grader next year. I was happy with the illustrations and basic general knowledge the workbook presents, but wanted something more through. If you have a child that grasps concepts very quickly, then this might be a great choice for your child. The workbook only devotes a few exercises for each concept.
I have decided to use this book to get the basics for first grade, but to then use this First Language Lessons for the Well-Trained Mind for laying the foundation of grammer needed for second grade and beyond. The First Language series is great.
