Summer Big Fun Workbook Preschool Readiness
Get ready for preschool! Designed for children who are about to begin school for the first time, this activity-rich, teacher-approved workbook combines skills practice with puzzles, humor, and reward stickers. This book lowers the barriers to learning and sets children up for early learning success.
Highlights brings “Fun with a Purpose” into this 144-page workbook to get kids excited about school before they even begin. This workbook introduces essential early learning skills and concepts, such as fine-motor control, letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. The book also encourages the development of other fundamental building blocks of learning–like focus and attention to detail–and it introduces what to expect in a preschool classroom. Plus, kids will love the bonus pull-out Hidden Pictures progress poster, fun reward stickers, award certificate, and extra activities that they can take outdoors.
“Summer” and “Fun” belong together in a sentence, but add in the word “workbook” and it becomes suspicious. Never fear, however, for Highlights knows how to deliver appealing, engaging learning. Packed with activities, these books are designed to review skills from one grade level in order that students can confidently move on to the next challenge. The workbooks are colorful and the artwork is appealing, and the activities are varied with just enough challenge and a good dose of fun to keep your summer student engaged. The eight chapters (one per week) are color-coded with each providing reading, writing, math, and thinking skills exercises that include puzzles, mazes, hidden pictures, and jokes. Each chapter concludes with a bonus activity such as a recipe, craft or science project. Progress through the book is recorded on a colorful poster (24”x 11”) tucked into the back of the book, with completion of each chapter marked by a sticker. Just to keep things interesting (and because it’s what Highlights is known for) there are 20 magnifying glasses hidden in each poster. When found, there’s a sticker to mark the spot. Sixteen emoji stickers are also provided for. . . well, just for fun. Your young, preparing-for-the-next-grade scholar receives a Congratulations! certificate when the book is completed. A complete answer key is provided. Oh, and the pages all have rounded corners (they’ve thought of it all!) Although there is no mention in the books themselves, the cover notes “online activities.” You might want to check out the interactive website for kids with puzzles, games, mazes, etc. at www.highlightkids.com. 145 pgs, pb.
