I have a parenting problem — I have a child who wants to be near me all the time around the house. He won’t be dismissed to go read or watch tv — he wants to be at my side, adding commentary to all my activities. He’s an independent, happy little guy — this isn’t clinging behavior, he just wants my company.
Anyway, he’s a great reader for a not-yet-kindergarten child, so I flipped through this book (I think I got it at Target) and decided he could handle the work. And I figured, if he got stuck, our house is equipped with older helpers.
This book has been much better than I expected. The activities are right in his knowledge areas — not so much letter-formation as phonics practice, coupled with writing letters. He whizzed through the reading comprehension parts. The best part of this book was the addition and subtraction on a number line. He clicked with that and picked up a lot of knowledge on his own.
There are good sections for time telling and fractions and reading graphs. I’m very pleased with this workbook. Plus, it has a little certificate of achievement at the back — He loves that. 90 pages was just about right.
