Reviews - What do customers think about My Book of Simple Subtraction (Kumon Workbooks)?
easy to use! May 13, 2008
My son finished this book right before starting 2nd grade and found that he was right in line with what his class was learning. He felt confident and accomplished. These books are very easy to use and we mix and match them with other learning materials. There is a certificate of achievement at the end of the workbook for your child. My child just loves to collect the certificates and we reward him with a small toy or a day of fun etc... The positive reinforcement works like a charm. I'm glad to see that Kumon is creating more workbooks for older children. We will definitely continue with this series.
better if has some applications in real life Apr 11, 2008
This book is based on the Kumon Method that introduces math concepts in an incremental, step-by-step approach, allowing children to grasp new skills little by little in drills with less challenge or frustration. As a result, children may gain confidence in their abilities and are motivated to learn more.
The practice helps your child develop an understanding of subtracting the numbers 1 through 5 from whole numbers up to 20. Children will be able to understand the concept of subtraction by repeatedly tracing and reciting numbers both forwards and backwards and then gradually shifting to subtracting the numbers 1 through 5. You can rarely find a book focusing on simple subtractions this way.
My child used this book and found it fun. Although it's labeled for 6-8 years old, I feel it's better for 5 years children or slow first graders. It's indeed very simple. I would like it better if it includes some real life use of simple subtractions, so children know how to apply the knowledge. In this aspect, Beestar free online word problems are wonderful. My child understands subtractions better when using both programs together. Overall, this is a solid book for very young children to start subtracting.
GREAT - totally love it. Jun 11, 2007
I totally love this workbook. It works incrementally, simply laid out and totally organized. I am confident that it will work really really well for my 5 year old. Some children might not like it, if they like things really bright and interesting or if they don't like doing the same thing over and over, however my daughter will really do well with it. I wish there were a few more pictures, otherwise it is fantastic!
