- The entire set of activities in the book are organized to be introduced over a ten week period with daily tear-away activity sheets with two activities per day
- Each day's activity sheet introduces a new learning topic which grows in complexity (for young kids) starting from simple matching the shapes moving on to writing, math and sounds
- The sheets are made of strong glossy paper, yet its good enough for using crayons for some of the coloring activities
- We loved the helpful tips and tibits for parents at the start of the book and at the beginning of each week's activities
- Comes with 120 Star incentive stickers which are more than sufficient for the 10 week's set of activities (which require 100) and leave some room for extra rewards when your child is extra 'nice'
- Comes with a complete answer key, luckily our little one hasn't wised up to it yet :)
We cant recommend this book enough to ALL parents whose children are getting ready for Pre-K as it makes learning a fun & rewarding experience with excellent content to boot. In fact just the other day I was listening to a newscast on 'All Things Considered' on NPR Radio about the state of New York's plans to introduce free Pre-K education to all 3 Year olds because there is proven science that early learning not only improves a child's ability to succeed in school/collage but studies have found that early learners had higher paying jobs much later in their lives as well. That alone is nothing compared to the price of this book. Highly Recommended
These activities are terrific. The pages rip out if you want. They are numbered with a calendar, so you can do 2 activities per day (1 sheet, front & back) for 10 weeks. Enough for the summer break. But frankly we do about 5-10 exercises per day (sometimes a whole weeks worth in 1 day), so for us they go fast.
The star stickers are great - you get one star every day on the calendar, and little certificates when you complete a week. Really well designed, love them. Great gift idea if you're a grandparent.
The first few pages are a bit simple, but they get more challenging just a few pages in. I only wish they made more than one book per level because we are going through it so fast..
We've been attending a Waldorf school, which ignored common core, and is very light on traditional academic skills the first few years. So we do a lot of these kinds of workbooks for supplementation at home. Most of them are hit or miss, even the big brands. Weekly Reader is definitely one I recommend. Also Sylvan makes great age-appropriate workbooks that are fun for kids.
My Experience: I have my 5 year-old son started working on this Weekly Reader: Summer Express for grades between PreK & K starting on 4/2/17 and finished it on 5/6/17. This workbook is excellent and makes learning super fun. I love that my son have these types of learning tools to keep his minds active and his learning expand. This is our first experience with Scholastic workbooks. We already love Scholastic picture books and free online printable exercises. This workbook is awesome because there are so many ways to learning the basics and the colorful pictures of flowers, fruits, animals, things are an added bonus.
This workbook is organized by week, with 10 pages of learning each week. It is designed to have the child work on 2 pages a day and each day, the child will earn 2 stars for the completed lessons. At the end of the week, the child will have completed 5 days of lessons or 10 pages of activities and will earn a certificate. Each week is separated out by colors so that it’s easy to keep track when the week ends. There are a mixtures of numbers, alphabet, compare size, differentiate more vs. fewer, math, handwriting, and reading & phonics in each week. I love the reading comprehension at the end of each week. The way this workbook is designed is excellent because it keeps children’s learning consistent from day to day and help enhance children’s interest in learning.
As a parent, I really enjoy sitting down with my son and helping him work through this workbook. I love the many fun ways of learning. Each page is filled with different activities that it feels like they are playing a game. Some days he actually volunteers to work on this workbook over his other lessons where he feels it was more of a homework than doing this. I highly recommend parents to invest on this workbook or similar ones because it makes learning fun and kids actually enjoys doing it. Scholastic has many workbooks for all ages. Click HERE to check out your choices. It’s learning without feeling like doing the work. Your kids thinks they are playing games when in fact they are actually learning, it makes your part in enhancing their knowledge a lot easier. I want my kid to excel and workbooks like these helps a lot because I work full-time and I just don’t have the expertise and energy to make learning fun for him. Therefore, I highly recommend you to give it a try. Your kids will love you for it!
Pro: fun learning activities, makes learning more like a game than work, illustrations, many areas of learning, reading comprehension, handwriting, counting, numbers, phonics, alphabet, etc
I rate it 5 stars!
***Disclaimer: Many thanks to Scholastic to provide the opportunity for my son to learn and for me to review. Please be assured that my opinions are honest.
