Beast Academy Grade 1
Now available, Beast Academy 1 fits the needs of children who need a math challenge! Using the popular monster theme of the other levels, Level 1 teaches math conceptually and focuses on problem solving. At this level, the all-in-one Guide and Practice Book are all you need! Beginning with a how to use section, 1A focuses on counting, shapes and comparing. The pace is fast, and mastery is the goal. Children begin by reading the comic book style lessons, and then complete the practice pages that follow the guided lesson. Over 400 practice problems are included, ranging from typical math practice to word problems and challenging puzzles. Guide and Practice Book pages are perforated for easy removal. Student hints and answers (some with expanded explanations) are found in the back of the book. Free printable resources at the publisher website make this excellent math program more interactive. Recommended for children ages 6-8 years. Students should be able to count and write to at least 20 (100 is preferred) before they begin Beast Academy 1. Early readers may need the help of a parent. Not reproducible. Printable manipulatives, game boards and other resources are available at the Beast Academy website.
Coming soon is 1B, with 1C and 1D planned for 2022. Planned chapters for 1B include Addition, Subtraction and Categories; 1C planned chapters include Addition and Subtraction, Comparing and Patterns; and the planned 1D chapters include Big Numbers, Measurements, and Problem Solving.
