Every day your child is acquiring the skills needed for entry into the world beyond family and home. Knowledge of patterns enables us to make predictions and solve problems. Noticing patterns in nature and in home routines and observing the sequence of daily events strengthens mathematical thinking and supports logical thinking and understanding of the world. Reading comprehension and the ability to solve mathematical equations are dependent on a child's skill in patterning and sequencing. This book includes activities that build skills in these areas. The activities in this book may seem simplistic, but their mastery is essential. Repetition is key, but remember to have fun! Research has shown that the brain is more receptive to learning and acquiring skills when not under stress.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!
