Pencil-Pal Software & Workbook First Grade
Pencil Pal is an early learning workbook with everything from letter problems, word problems, simple math, order-of-event problems, shapes and picture puzzles. Some of the letter/word problems are close to this: the capital and lowercase of a letter, followed by pictures of items; it then has your child circle the pictures that start with that letter. Order-of-event problems might be like this: "Think about what you know about the pilgrims. Then number the boxes in order." Accompanied with pictures, these problems are probably more useful and enjoyable than your average early learning challenges. This early curriculum also comes with interactive software to use. On it are activities that include scenes to color, blank pages to draw and decorate, and more. Definitely worth a look if you want a fun, thorough workbook. 128 pages each; the first grade workbook contains answers in the back.
