Ask Me Smarter! is the one-source tool encompassing all elementary grade levels for parents and teachers to ask children progressive questions covering a wide array of disciplines. It is a straightforward approach to asking primarily rote questions that align with elementary learning standards and outcomes per grade level. It is designed to maximize the "spacing effect" in that facts are learned best and long-term retrieval optimized when information is studied at frequent intervals over a long period of time. It is based on the notion that children learn at different paces, and learning is not necessarily aligned to chronological age. Its all-encompassing, progressive format is what makes it unique.
It further allows for review and reinforcement based on child-readiness and retention capacity. Even though a child may learn one topic in a one year does not guarantee the child will retain that same information and have the retention and recall capacity to build on that knowledge the following school year!
Ask Me Smarter! is intended to enhance and reinforce the facts, ideas, and concepts "covered" in each elementary grade level. It encompasses a wide array of core and non-core subjects including language arts; notable literary works; math; science; social studies; government and civics; economics;physical education; health and safety; the arts; the environment;technology and information skills; current events; and historical timelines.
This book provides progressive questions and answers that align with elementary Language Arts learning targets, Preschool-5th Grade! Because parents are their children's first and best teachers! Because it is a parent-friendly resource that reinforces what elementary-aged children are learning in school! Because the BRAIN cannot resist a question!
