The book is divided into color-coded sections (the following all caps). Just a sample of themes: PHONICS at the beach, SPELLING/VOCABULARY on the highway, GRAMMAR/ MECHANICS while shooting hoops, READING the process of growing sprouts, WRITING about a fun day, NUMBER/ OPERATIONS at doggy day school, ADDITION/ SUBTRACTION under the big top with a pair of juggling clowns...
There's MULTIPLICATION with a times table machine, MEASUREMENT/ DATA converting ingredients for chocolate flan, GEOMETRY at the robot body shop, NATURE of SCIENCE with a fossil, LIFE SCIENCE with a variety of animals, EARTH SCIENCE in space, PHYSICAL SCIENCE with drums, COMMUNITY maps and saving/spending in the MARKETPLACE...
...And the list goes on and on for over 280 activities.
The page of stickers in the back are currently the same ones found in all three grades of Achieve! workbooks. Each book includes a paper ruler and a separate code for a free two month trial of Go Math! Academy.
My favorite part of this book is grammar, including irregular verbs, pronouns, commas, irregular plural nouns, and much more. I think having a book like this every Summer is a great idea.
This book has a few editing choices that may help you decide if this is a good book for your family. This is a review and practice book with no time spent on teaching these topics. It's designed to be a book for one kid. The pages are not removable and there is no space for them to write their name on individual pages. The book does have an option to register your workbook download the book in PDF format which is a 100% copy in terms of content and resolution of images/font etc, it's an amazing feature! The content is Common Core based. This book is also 300 pages and 16 topics which means that no one topics gets enough coverage to do a page a day for a year and keep up as reinforcement. Even as a refresher if you do 3-4 pages a day over the summer you can knock it out, but the first Addition and Subtraction page is 6+2 level and at the end 25 pages later it's 796-468 so the ordering and pacing will take some parent review to make it work. And yes, there is an answer key!
Overall I think this is a solid work book that does a good job of sampling a ton of content in an way that is interesting to kids and will keep them engaged. The PDF is also an amazing feature worth the cost by itself!
