IF you need good coverage of foundational language arts skills; IF you also want that review to be aligned to Common Core; IF you want it to be inexpensive yet eye-pleasing (white pages with accent color); and IF you recognize the motivating value of gold stickers; THEN these workbooks from DK are the answer. Some activities are typical workbook activities, but others are "outside the box." Upon completion of each page, the provided gold stars are attached to line items in the table of contents, which serves as an assignment chart. Grade-level appropriate coverage includes phonics, punctuation, capitalization, parts of speech, types of sentences and beginning composition. Answers and a certificate of completion are provided. 60 pgs, pb ~ Janice
