Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
The cover of this workbook has a listing of the various subjects covered in its 300+ pages—from addition to vocabulary, all of the basics are covered. The cover also says "A whole year of curriculum-based exercises and activities in one fun book." This statement is actually well founded. The colorful pages cover a wide selection of every aspect of second grade studies. There are many sidebars of information and specific tips about grammar, math, social studies, or whatever is being covered in the particular section. The activities are wide ranging and interesting, with great effort put into making the workbook accessible to students. There are plenty of opportunities for students to make subjective interactions with the separate pages, as well as opportunities for higher order thinking in the story analysis sections. The cursive practice pages are straightforward and easy to utilize for those perfecting handwriting. There are motivational stickers (over 150) and a map of the United States (with more stickers of its own), as well as a "Brain Quest Mini-Deck" of question cards and a "Brainiac Certificate" for those who "complete the whole workbook." This workbook will guarantee that second graders will not lose their skills over the summer and those entering second grade will have had an excellent exposure to the things they will master more fully during the school year. The cartoon illustrations are appealing and help make the workbook more fun than it might have been, considering the amount of information that is crammed between the covers. Reviewer: Sheilah Egan

    First Grader Loved it

    My 7 year old first grader loved 'doing her workbook' over school break and when she was home with a stomach bug. Challenging, yet easy in the beginning to get started.

    Fun and learning can be the same thing

    This series of workbooks is a good tool for teachers to use in reviewing subjects or simply to have a challenging game. The facts seem to have been well checked and are very grade specific. They are great to have in the car or in the classroom. Summer vacations don't need to be a time when learning stops. Have these workbooks on hand to fill in the quiet times or the times when you hear "I have nothing to do."
