Kumon Focus On Series
Kumon is a very trusted name in education, but most people associate their materials with early learning. Over the past several years, Kumon has developed math materials up through 6th grade, and these new additions focus on areas in which some students have difficulty. The idea behind this series is to help students 'master' fundamentals for a solid math future.
The Kumon methodology is to tackle one skill at a time and 'focus' upon it until the student understands and can apply it. The workbooks follow a systematic, incremental approach that allows children to learn at their own pace and practices each skill intensely. Each workbook has 27 or 28 two-page lessons, and it is suggested that you do a few pages each day and do the pages in order. The books are printed in black and white with a single accent color, unlike the regular Kumon math curriculum, which is more colorful. The intention is for the child to complete the workbooks independently and even do their own checking with the answer key found at the back of the book. If a child has difficulty, they should go back to an easier section of the book and redo it; working forward from that point again.
Let Kumon help your child become proficient in math as they "Focus On" their skills. ~ Donna
