These topics are Identifying Colors and Shapes, Relating and Connecting Ideas, Completing Patterns, Counting, Number Patterns, Prepositions, Picture Analogies, Finding Differences, Finding Similarities, and Sequences. These exercises are meant to provoke and satisfy young children's curiosity and imagination in order to help them reach their fullest potential. A practice test is included at the end of the book with listening prompts that are meant to be read to the children, mocking real testing situations. This allows for parents to also play an active role in enhancing and furthering their children's learning process. Children who use this book will be able to learn alongside Jack and Jill, who are two characters in the book that appear in each topic, so that children may learn in a familiar environment. Our goal is to making the learning process enjoyable and fun for the children, because we believe that they will learn the most in this way. The book is colorful and kid-friendly.

NurtureShock

New Thinking About Children

View: 771
In a world of modern, involved, caring parents, why are so many kids aggressive and cruel? Where is intelligence hidden in the brain, and why does that matter? Why do cross-racial friendships decrease in schools that are more integrated? If 98% of kids think lying is morally wrong, then why do 98% of kids lie? What's the single most important thing that helps infants learn language? NurtureShock is a groundbreaking collaboration between award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. They argue that when it comes to children, we've mistaken good intentions for good ideas. With impeccable storytelling and razor-sharp analysis, they demonstrate that many of modern society's strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science have been overlooked. Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors' work is an insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend children's (and adults') lives.
