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
"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."
