I didn't even have a chance to introduce this workbook to him. It was sitting on the table and he picked it up and started looking through it. He excitedly asked me, "Mommy, can I do this?" I sat down with him and guided him through a couple different pages, thinking that would be that.
To my surprise, (and delight!), he kept asking if he could do another page!! The pages are colorful and really draw your attention. They really do draw you in....but the real advantage is that each page teaches an exercise in how to think things through. For example, one exercise gives fun "clues" to figure out what is the favorite food of 3 different characters. As you fill in the right spot on the page, based on each clue, you end up with the correct answers, but along the way, YOU MADE A CHART! Which is a great thing for a 1st grader. There are mazes that you can only get through by answering questions, or avoiding pitfalls, or following clues. Mazes are always a big hit at our house, but these ones you had to think your way through.
Even though the title says it's a "Problem Solving Workbook," these pages go WAY beyond the "story problems" that you and I remember from school. Instead they are so much fun that your child won't even realize that he's developing thought patterns and methods of solving problems that will help him throughout school and dare I say it? Yes, throughout life. There, I said it. Sounds like a sales pitch, I know, but I'm no salesperson. Just a plain old mom, who is thrilled that my child WANTS to do something that actually TEACHES him valuable lessons along the way.
You will be amazed at how fun your child thinks these worksheets are, AND at how truly helpful they are to your little one's brain skills.
First, I don't like to plop him in front of a screen, so any written materials that occupy him while I get some work done are gold. Second, this book teaches skills that will come in very handy when my boy takes the OLSAT test, or any other aptitude test. The exercises enforce focus, logical steps, and following directions, which are such critical skills for any form of higher thought.
We have tons of workbooks, but this one stands out in several ways. It's colorful and bright and friendly-looking, which is important at this age. The puzzles are very well thought-out to be challenging and entertaining to this age group. They're not rehashes of the same puzzles I've seen in other workbooks. One, for example, involved reading a compass and indicating directions from one place to another by instructing the traveler to go east, then north, then northeast, etc. Another involved matching old technology (eg, quill pens) with its newer equivalent (eg, ball point pens). It's great to see that Mead has put real thought into these exercises. My son certainly put thought into solving them!
This was my first Mead workbook. I think of Mead as a notebook and school-supply manufacturer; I never really thought of them as content generators. That's changed now. I will be looking into their other educational materials -- er, I mean "puzzle books," as I always call them when I give them to my son!
The one potential negative to this book is that it strikes me as perhaps a bit too challenging for the average first grader. Parents of average students might want to get the book from the grade below (e.g. the K book for an average 1st grader and the pre-k book for an average Kindergartener).
