The key to your child's educational success is in your hands

"Knowledge Essentials is a remarkable series that will benefit children of all abilities and learning styles. . . I highly recommend it for all parents who want to make a difference in their children's education."
—Michael Gurian, author of Boys and Girls Learn Differently and The Wonder of Boys

Part of the new Knowledge Essentials series, First Grade Success shows you how to enrich your child's classroom learning and take an active role in your first grader's education by exploring:

• What your first grader is learning at school and the educational standards to expect in math, language arts, science, and social studies

• Your child's learning style—visual, auditory, or kinesthetic—and how it affects the way your child learns and processes information

• Hundreds of easy-to-do activities designed to help your child meet specific learning requirements

• Environmental learning sections that identify learning opportunities in the everyday world

• Methods and checklists to assess your child's academic progress

• Information on how teachers evaluate performance—portfolios, rubrics, test scores, and other tools of the trade

• Recommendations of age-appropriate books and software that will enhance learning

Give your child the gift of your time—and help him or her get the most out of school with First Grade Success.

This is an excellent book for parents to use with their child throughout the school year.

First Grade Success gives parents the knowledge and activites they need to help their little student do well in school. It's helpful to read about what first graders are learning about in each subject and to learn how it relates to their overall development. I also love the versatility of the activites for each subject - there's something for every child - and most importantly, they're fun. I recommend this book to any parent that wants to help their child extend their learning outside the classroom.

This book helps parents understand the way their child's mind develops and how a first grade curriculum is designed to accommodate the development. It also provides valuable information about how to be part of your child's school life and the best people to talk to at the school. The practical advice is invaluable!

As a former teacher, I am extremely impressed by the kinesthetic parts of the book. It is so important to include hands-on activities. I especially like the part in each chapter titled 'When mastery occurs'. I highly recommend this book.

This book is fantastic! The book is easy to read. The lessons are fun and interactive. It is so helpful to have a book that shows you how to adapt to your child's learning style. It is a wonderful supplement to what your child is learing in school and a great way to help him/her improve!

This book was great for me as the parent of a young child. It was very practical and useful. I hope to be able to use more books in the series as my son gets older.

Our 5 yr old is starting school this year. I feel she already has a headstart with the insightful infomation in 1st Grade Success. I think it would be essential if you were doing home schooling. The book is written in 'real terms' down to earth language that is easy to understand.
