Reviews - What do customers think about Summer Bridge Activities: 4th to 5th Grade?
great purchase Jul 12, 2008
I was very happy with this book for my son going into 5th grade. I wanted him to keep up his math skills - the book is wonderful for that! There are some sections (social studies, history) that I ended up crossing off because I thought it was just too hard. Some of the writing I changed up a little to make it more interesting for my son (who doesn't want to write!) I will definitely do this again next summer.
A fun way to Bridge the gap b/t school years Jun 23, 2008
Summer Bridge Activities-we have used these for 4 years. We use them to help the children keep up their school/academic skills over the summer break. They are a GREAT adjunct to summer reading. The books have various "exercises" covering all subjects in a day by day format and have "grading" pages with stickers and stars for completion. The children initially balk at doing them but soon enjoy "remembering" what they did in school!!!
Excellent! Aug 15, 2007
I really like this workbook for summer practice, review and introduction of new material. This book includes a variety of subjects especially math.
Great summer time workbook Aug 1, 2007
My daughter loves these workbooks. They have a great calendar and pacing marks. She sets the goals and goes for them.
Refreshment for the Summer Brain Jul 3, 2007
I have used this series for my children for years. This year they actually reminded me to purchase them. Much of what was learned in school can become fuzzy when mixed with the sand and surf of summer. This workbook series helps keep it fresh. We usually do three pages every three days, paired with 30 minutes of daily reading. Still plenty of time for swimming, water balloons, and catching fireflies, and your child will return to school knowing that Marco Polo is not just a game you play in the pool! This edition has a good balance of math, science, social studies, and language arts. By reviewing what they learned in 4th grade, and using the opportunity to research included information that they may not be familiar with, your child can start the 5th grade with confidence.
