This book is great for kids learning kindergarten math. The pictures are colorful and engaging. The skills that are repeated have variety and different approaches that allows for repetition but also for novelty. Several of the activities would seem fun or like a game/fun challenge to a kid at that age. I know my son would have enjoyed that book at that age and that it would have worked on skills he was working on in the classroom.
Loved this book! Definitely recommend parents to buy the hard copy. I just wrote everything down on paper. My son enjoyed this.
The #CompleteKindergartenMathWorkbook from #NetGalley. was well drawn and had lots of different concepts for explaining aspects of math. What makes it stand out from other books is that it was comprehensive in the different activities. Perhaps a new homeschool mom or teacher wants some ideas for different ways to explain mathematics. Although I was quite familiar with all the different activities from various workbooks I've owned, I thought the language, conceptual framing, and word choices were variable enough to keep kids interested throughout the different activiites. it was nice to see them all co-located and executed well. The layout was clean and clear, and the visual thinking on the puzzles was well illustrated. I would recommend this to homeschool kindergarten parents, if they don't already have other workbooks. It's also nice as a complement to a full curriculum, or for extra math fun with your kiddos.
Fun workbook for kindergarten math. My daughter enjoyed it and the colorful pages made her excited to check out each page.
An interesting math book for kindergartener, some kind of Kumon style book that repeats calculation to hone young children's math works. Full colored one, this book is so engaging and fun to do, We can use this for at home skill builder, giving more confidence in the calculations.
It is never too early for a young mind to learn how to count. As soon as my child is ready to learn numbers I will be utilizing this book. This enjoyable workbook teaches fundamental math ideas. It begins with counting, sorting, and shapes and moves on to addition, subtraction, word problems, 3-D shapes, utilizing number lines and ten frames, telling time, counting money, and other topics.
The graphics are vibrant, entertaining, and captivating. There are several intriguing methods for tackling problems. In general, this is a wonderful addition to a math curriculum. It might apply to a youngster as young as age 3 depending on the child.
The ability to count cannot come soon enough to a young mind. This use-once exercise book proves the ability to count with and without the answer there as a multiple choice, and how to count to match with a pre-given answer, is only part of the picture. There are other tasks as well – a join-the-dots, a kitchen diorama with the numbers sprawled around like an advent calendar for us to find in order (although minus marks for having a 9 on its side so we don’t know if it’s the six or not) and so on. Tasks engage with the visual of nine, say, baseballs, as well as the digit and the lettering of the word ‘nine’, too, so the concept of presenting the number in all ways is fixed.
Things also progress as we go along, so while we start with just the numbers under 20, we gain the idea of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’, the zero being in a progression followed by 1 and 2, and some early geometry and shapes along the way to sections that deal with larger numbers and more scope for doing things with them, like subtraction. The geometry comes into using 2D and 3D images of items, but all of the things here are pretty universal – only once did I see a puzzle reliant on you knowing the weight of a bowling ball, and nothing else felt culture-specific or whatever the term is.
By the end we have learnt division and multiplication – even if they’re not called that here. This is lingo-free, just the puzzles and perhaps some adult guidance here and there. Complete this and the young brainbox will definitely be adept at using numbers, in ways that will be so useful from then on. I cannot remember a similar pre-school maths book from my childhood, and I gained much of my numbers via osmosis from an older brother anyway, but I am damned sure I would have had a creditable start to knowing maths from these pages.
What a great resource to complement a kindergarten school curriculum!
This workbook is a great source to build upon and enhance kindergarten math concepts. The activities were constructed to make math fun while learning at the same time. The activities a are colorful and include puzzles, counting, and hide and seek concepts, to name merely a few. There are so many choices which will allow all students to find something with which to connect. I especially liked the different levels of choice to allow an initial foundation and then, being able to continuously move on when a concept had been mastered.
This would be a wonderful resource for any elementary school!
I wish this workbook had been published a year ago because it is so great for the intended age. My daughter is just moving out of kindergarten and would now probably find half of these activities a bit too easy, but she is also easily distracted and might enjoy the variety of colorful pages to help her focus and further develop her math skills. As we are in the middle of summer and getting ready for back to school., I hope to sit down with her and work through some pages to refresh her knowledge and skills.
Such a great tool for Kindergarten readiness! I love the variety of lessons! This would definitely keep kids interested!!!
This math workbook is filled with colourful pages, pictures and puzzles to help prepare a child for elementary school math concepts. Things like size, grouping, counting, shapes and more are used throughout this book. As a former grade 1 teacher, I think that the content is grade appropriate for kindergarten and would be a great resource for parents wanting to supplement school/homework or engage young children in fun math tasks that will keep them motivated to keep learning. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me the opportunity to check out this book!
This resource would be fantastic for not only helping a child practice at home alongside their normal curriculum, but also as a homeschool assist as well as summer resource to prevent summer slide. The pictures are easily identifiable and engaging for the young audience. I especially like how it includes early division practices that are easy enough for a Kindergartener, or even a pre-k student, to understand and implement.
Extra kudos for including the seconds on the clock faces in the section on "Time", which is something I almost never see in these types of workbooks. I feel like this workbook would help children or all ages, not just the younger ones.
Adults who want to reinforce Kindergarten math skills before school starts up again will want to give this title a book. There is no denying that this is a workbook but it is a colorful one that has varied activities. These are organized by level. My advice: don’t push your child but see if they want to engage. They will definitely be ready for school if they do. I remember that I used to like workbooks. There is satisfaction with Math ones when the work is understood.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Zeitgeist-Z kids for this title. All opinions are
This is a fun workbook covering basic math concepts. Starting with counting, sorting, and shapes, it progresses to addition, subtraction, word problems, 3-D shapes, using number lines and ten frames, telling time, counting money, and more.
The illustrations are colorful, fun, and engaging. There are some interesting approaches to problem solving. Overall, this would make a nice supplement to a math curriculum. Depending on the child, it could be relevant as early as age 3.
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for this honest review!
My daughter is 4, but she's very interested in numbers already. She loves activity books, and this one looks right up to her alley. It's a colourful picture book, the illustrations are cute, and it's full of diverse activities that help developing different skills. The workbook is organised by levels from 1 to 4, so it will keep her busy and entertained for a long time.
Thank you NetGalley and Zeitgeist / Z kids for an Advance Review Copy.
