From the Jacket
"I literally have NO WORDS to describe how amazing this book is! On a scale of 1-10 I give this workbook a 110!...The workbook is actually FUN. There are a few exercises that my son considers "work" but most of the pages he actually enjoys doing. Not too many kids actually ENJOY doing extra school work. That is because the activities are FUN and our son doesn't realize that while he's having fun he's also learning and reinforcing what he's learned."
"[My son] Vinze began using the workbook about a month ago. It is very easy to use and I have been pleasantly surprised to see that he is putting his new found skills to use! His punctuation has already improved and his spelling is coming along quite nicely in only one month!"
"As a teacher, I look for different aspects in a resource than a student or a parent might... The book has vibrant, attractive colors and the worksheets are really fun. My 10 year old son has been enjoying them since I got the book…I recommend this book to students, parents, and teachers alike for increasing student achievement."
"My daughter has picked up some great study habits and she loves that we don't spend hours on one subject. I recommend these workbooks to everyone homeschooler or not, as they can really add to your child's learning experience."
"This book is extremely well organized. I love how each activity in a section connects to eachother, which allows the child to really grasp the concepts. The pages are full of interesting stories and fun activities. The workbooks also make it easy for kids to check their own work which will help them gain confidence in their skills."
"As an early childhood teacher, I know that good reading, vocabulary, and spelling skills make an essential foundation for both academic success as well as lifelong learning. Sylvan Learning Workbooks & Learning Kits are an awesome resource that I'd have no problem recommending to the parents of any of my students who are struggling. The teacher-reviewed, curriculum-based activities and exercises in these books are great for helping a child achieve success with reading, provided that they're worked through with a loving and patient adult."
