Category Description for Ridgewood Analogies:

Solving analogies helps children learn to process information, make important connections, identify and construct relationships and improve comprehension and long-term memory. This series covers the five basic types of analogies: descriptive, comparative, categorical, serial and causal. Book 1 is the introductory level. It contains pre-analogy exercises, then progresses through the basic analogy types with four levels of difficulty. Novice exercises introduce and describe type of analogy, provide instruction and example, then practice exercises. Each of these has six words in a box, with one analogy shown. The student must use the other words to construct an equivalent analogy. Apprentice level exercises have a Word Bank from which students pick a word to complete an analogy. At the Masters level, students choose two words per analogy. Super Masters analogies have just one (or no) printed word(s) and a large Word Bank. Students create two analogies with corresponding relationships using words from the bank. Level 2 and 3 books are formatted similarly, with progressively more difficult vocabularies. Books 4 and 5 practice all five types of analogies also, but in the context of different subject areas (Geography, History/Government, Language Arts, Math). Answer keys also contain an explanation of analogies, with examples of each type of relationship, and lesson notes.

I was rather disappointed in this series of analogies books My daughter is 12 and has experienced analogies since she was Pre-KIf you are starting your child off in analogies for the very first time the Ridgewood series may be of use But for children who are well versed with analogies much of the book is a waste Each book explains how to work analogies in a step-by-step format A child only needs that once Not each time they begin a new book And certainly not for each section of the bookSo that my money wouldn't be completely wasted I had her skip the Pre-analogy and Novice sections In essence 1/2 the book It was still much too simpleAnother annoyance was that the Answer Key does not refer to page numbers You have to locate the title and level or the page completed and then look it up each time in the Answer Key Page references are faster
