When we left for Canada the other week we didn’t bring the kids school work. We weren’t expecting to be gone so long. When we realized we were going to be there for another full week I ran out to find something to temporarily replace our curriculum.
After looking through many different work books I came across the Brain Quest one and instantly knew it was what I was looking for. It touched on so many subjects like Spelling and Vocabulary, Language Arts, Reading, Writing, Math Skills, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Fractions and Decimals, Social Studies, Science and more – all in the one book. The pages are colourful and bright. The lessons are fun and filled with games and puzzles.
What I really liked about it was that it touches on the basics while keeping things entertaining. It makes for a good supplemental curriculum for kids whether they are home schooled or attend a conventional school. The lessons vary from fairly easy, which helps build confidence, to more challenging, which really gets the kids thinking. The pages tear out easily which is good because the answers are in the back of the book. Every activity has a little Brain Box at the bottom of the page which is more of a review than a lesson. If your child has not learned that particular lesson in school, be prepared to do some teaching.
Overall, I’m really impressed with the Brain Quest workbooks and just thought I’d pass on my thoughts to you!
