very light workbook,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Brain Quest Workbook, Grade 2 (Paperback)
my son's first grade teacher said i should reinforce concepts at home over the summer so he'll be ready for 2nd grade. i first purchased the brainquest 1st grade workbook, but realized it's geared towards kids who have finished kindergarten. since that book was much too simple for my son, i bought this book. this book is better, but i still don't like how there are very few problems on each page. for example, one page is 'draw a timeline of your life' with markers for every 10 years starting at 'birth'. another is a 5-line description of mammals (e.g., mammals drink milk, mammals have hair, etc), then directs a child to mark a group of 6 cartoon animals as mammals. i eventually went to a brick and mortar bookstore and realized that the workbooks that followed his curriculum are clearly labelled "aligned to state and national standards". One example isUsing the Standards, Grade 2: Building Grammar & Writing Skills (The 100+ Series) and Math, Grade 2 (Master Skills). i returned this brainquest book and purchased the two workbooks i mentioned.

Not sure what your point is. As far as I can tell, with 2 children in grade school, the state standards are minimal at best.
