10 Minutes a Day is a series of home-learning workbooks, closely linked to school curricula, that helps make learning easyand so much fun. It provides quick exercises in math (fractions, decimals, and problem solving) and language and writing skills (spelling, vocabulary, and phonics) for children aged 3-11 years. Using the attached 10-minute timer, these workbooks are ideal for children during "time-to-fill" moments at home and are based on the effective little-and-often learning strategy.
The Standards Edition is an adaptation of the Singapore Math program that is aligned to the CA math standards and has been approved for use in CA. At the end of the millennium (1997), CA led the way in re-establishing rigorous math standards in the United States. The NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Math) standards followed and were revised in 2006. Interestingly, both of these standards are now much more closely aligned to what was already typical of the Singapore Math curriculum. Therefore, changes needed to bring the 3rd edition Singapore Math into alignment with the CA standards were rather minimal and pertain mostly to additional review coupled with some rearrangement of material. ~ Janice
Looking for a creative way for your child to practice math skills - one that will not lead to anarchy? This new series from DK may be exactly what you are looking for. Combining colorful pages with a built-in 10-minute timer, your children will be eager to "beat the clock" while doing math! The book contains over 30 grade appropriate lessons displayed on two-page spreads and is written to support the NCTM Standards. In the upper elementary grades, the workbooks provide practice in fractions, decimals, multiplication and problem solving. The unique ten-minute timer arrives connected to the book and is simple enough for the youngest of children to use. The timer records the length of time it takes to answer the questions in each lesson and can be used as a stop watch. If your child is still working at the ten minute mark, the timer will go off and your child will put the lesson away until the next day, motivating your child to work faster the next day to beat the timer. The front of the book offers a space to record the time taken to complete each lesson. A valuable tool for supplemental math practice or keeping math skills sharp during the summer months. Answers and parent notes are found in the back of the book. Pages are perforated for easy removal. Non-reproducible. 80 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
