Category Description for Primary Analogies:

Even children without reading skills can cultivate their ability to identify and describe analogous relationships with this program. Beginning with picture-to-picture analogies for the non-reader, then progressing to ones using letters and numbers, then simple words, children learn to solve and create analogies in five categories: descriptive, comparative, categorical, serial, and causal. Few analogy programs are available for this age range, especially one this focused and systematic. The ability to perceive and understand relationships and make connections between objects and events is a higher-level thinking skill that can help improve understanding and long-term memory. Comparing one thing to another, or seeing how one thing is like another is one way to help make sense of the world around us. Although children at this age will probably just consider these exercises fun, we know they are creating pathways for learning that will facilitate their comprehension of concepts and events in both school and life.

Used this before with one of my boys and enjoyed doing it together. Got it for my 8 year old and I to use.

This is a very frustrating product Several times I've had to stop using it midstream because I couldn't make it work On page 2 the student is supposed to match up what goes with birthdays Thanksgiving and Halloween My child could not figure out which picture is supposed to represent Thanksgiving The choices are a jack-o-lantern a very odd hat that doesn't look like a pilgrims hat (which they didn't wear anyway) or a witch's hat either and a candle Page 3 says the first one is done for you and I'm still looking at it and going "where" and the directions are vague enough that it would have been helpful if the first one had been done Page 4 has circles and an overlapping set A is supposed to be farm animals B is supposed to be circus animals A & B overlap creating C which is only supposed to be 4 legged animals But what if you have a 4 legged animal that is a farm animal and not circus animal -- how can you put it in C which is also part of B which is circus animals Its almost as if it communicates that any animal that has 4 legs is both a farm animal and a circus animal There is a good chance this is going to end up in the trash
