These books are great for summer learning! May 13, 2008
I started using these books when my now 7 year old was 5. He loves them and they are great for practicing math or whatever subject you choose. We like to use them during the summer to keep the subject matter fresh for the next school year. There is a little achievement certificate at the end of each workbook which my son just loves to fill out. This series is especially nice for small children just learning new skills such as tracing or learning their numbers etc... I recommend the whole line.
great in SMALL doses! Dec 24, 2007
This series is a great resource but it should NOT be your sole means for teaching your small kids the 3 Rs. The exercises are SO repetitive that if you bombard your kids with page after page they WILL learn to hate learning and studying and will need years of therapy to undo the damage.
Seriously, in small doses (say 1/4 to 1/2 a page once or twice a week) this volume will signficantly augment your child's development. But you have to take an active role and make it fun, and make it personally meaningful and joyous for your child. We almost made it a chore for our girl and i will never make that mistake again.
No frills workbook, but excellent practice! Aug 15, 2007
This is a basic book of addition. It reviews addition systematically, meaning a child practices 3 pages of adding 1 to numbers, then 3 pages of adding 2 to numbers, and so on, all the way up to 9. There is no instruction, there is no variety, but I really like Kumon's systemic approach.
I gave it a 4 because it is so no frills (no color, 20 problems per page in 2 columns), which meant that my preschooler rarely wanted to do it voluntarily (unlike say, the Evan-Moor series of workbooks which he would happily finish in a week). My preschooler, btw, is a sibling of homeschooled children so he will ask, "Where's MY math book?" when his siblings are doing math -- otherwise I wouldn't see the need to introduce this book to a 4 year old. In fact, the recommended ages are 5, 6, and 7.
Anyway, if you are looking for a math practice book, this is a good straightforward one, but I would definitely supplement it with other activities and workbooks to add variety and increase interest.
