I was looking for something that my children could use to learn more math and English and this was perfect for them. They like the activities and it is straightforward so far. They are not always challenged in school so this is meant to supplement their learning when they want to.

A giant leap in workbooks! A giant workbook! 18. November 2008
Von H. Sapiens - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Summary: GREAT! Having gone through what feels like every workbook known to man - or at least Borders, I feel like I can finally stop my quest for the perfect workbook. The book's colors are vibrant, the pictures contemporary, and the content interesting.

Topics are color coded and separated by subject: phonics, reading, social studies, science, sequencing, measurements, math. I am really impressed with the mix of different subjects, especially the science, which is often overlooked in workbooks. The topics are age-appropriate, for instance coloring the land masses and oceans of the earth, reading a short passage on the sun and answering questions (e.g. Is the sun a planet or a star?).

There is a wide mix of ability levels within each subject, except maybe reading. The phonics starts very simply (shows pictures and the name, missing the first letter, and a list of a few letters d,f,g and the child writes in the letter it starts with). It then builds up including recognition of ch, sh, th words. I felt the reading section started at a bit higher level than the other sections ("This is a dragon.") already assuming your child has mastered sight words and sounding out. So, struggling readers may want to move back a workbook level (or better yet, get both).

The math section is really, really great. It moves from writing numbers to addition and subtraction, carefully showing the different forms that problems are written in (e.g. both horizontal and vertical). First the picture may look something like this *** + ** = ***** and your child would write 3 + 2 = 5. A few pages of practice and the next section would look like *** + ** = ________, so it is building on task sequencing skills and stepping the child into learning how to decode and solve the problem. Kudos here. The pictures are cute and engaging. Within the measurement section, my daughter especially loved measuring monsters using a ruler (included on the page) - again, nice skill building.

This book is amazingly full of a diverse number of activities. At the current price, it is a steal. The quality of the materials is better than a lot that comes home.

Cons: The font used is not consistent - in some parts of the book, the a's and g's are those fancy curly-q things that no one actually uses when writing (see the a here). This is difficult for a beginning writer who is trying to write a difficult word (e.g. a picture of a girl eating ice cream - a fill in sentence: "The girl is eating ______." with a word bank: cookies, gum, ice cream). For a child copying the words for the spelling, it would be better for the letters to be consistent throughout the book and in the form with which we want them to write.

The stickers are really not that fabulous - they consist of only a few designs repeated several times (stars, letters, cat, dog). They seem like an afterthought, so I don't mind, but be warned.

Some of the sections were a bit brief. There was little to do with each measurement section, so she burned through it in two sittings. But, she's prolific and begs to do her "work".

Placement: This is tricky. The material does move from easier to harder, except what I noted about reading, so I would be a little optimistic with your selection so that the material increases with your child and doesn't become too easy. I would pick the level true to your child's highest LEVEL rather than the grade they're in - not too easy, not too hard. A struggling 1st grade reader may need a K book, which will do more for them in terms of content mastery than this book, which assumes they've got it. Our older child has a learning disability, so I'm speaking from experience here - push too hard and too high of a level and they will become unmotivated and will just give up. I like this book because it builds on task sequencing, which I wish we had for our son; however picking the right level is critical. Not too hard! This should be fun and something they can succeed at so they want to do it!

If you are thinking about this book, here's what my thoughts were when picking this level: My 4 y.o. "preschooler" knows a good number of her sight words, all the letters, the names of the oceans and continents. So, I selected the 1st grade book. She is working in it without frustration, and that is the key. She seeks the book out and completes about 5-7 pages in a sitting. Do expect to sit with your child and work with them on some activities, but it should be without frustration. The reading in this book is not a perfect fit for us. She has trouble with sounding out words, and I don't want her to work beyond her comfort level, hence, I will be purchasing the K book as well. There was a lot of reading and writing in the reading section, and it required a child knew all 100 sight words from K, plus could sound out new words, and could form a complete sentence from information they read. Ultimately, I feel this book is absolutely consistent with the breadth of the 1st grade curricula, so should be appropriate for an average just finished K or just starting 1st child.

Edit: I forgot to add that the answers are included in the back and that the pictures are all easy to identify. We have some alphabet flash cards that ask you to identify all things that start with "Q" - and then proceeds to show a picture of a quail - you won't find anything that ambiguous in this book.

Great look, so-so content 13. April 2011
Von Sista Shopatista - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This workbook's graphics, paper quality and size give it a stimulating, well-made feel. Most pages, though, have only 3-5 problems. The oversized pages could have packed in many more exercises. My daughter can't build up a lot of momentum because she has to learn a new set of instructions every few minutes as she completes pages and moves on. I would have liked more repetition in the form of more exercises per page.

Follows our public school curriculum closely 25. November 2008
Von Carol M - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
My son is a first grader in a 1/2 "multi-age" classroom in a well-respected public school. This workbook covers almost exactly the kind of skills that he is being taught at school. We use this at home for reinforcement of what he is learning in school.

As advertised, this is a "work book", not an activity book. You'll find only a few mazes, dot-to-dots, etc in here. If you are looking for a book to keep your child busy for hours on a long plane ride, you probably want to look elsewhere. But for doing a couple of work sheets at a sitting for extra school practice, it's great!

My son likes this book because the pages are colorful, inviting, and have appealing illustrations. The skills and activities are often nearly identical to what comes home in his weekly "homework packet" -- but he's much more engaged by the same work in this book. The quality of the presentation of these workbook pages are sometimes helpful for more than just kid appeal. For example, in the "money" section, the coins are easily recognizable, but that is often not the case in the copied black-and-white homework sheets from school.

I think this book is right on target for the "average" first grader in the first half of the school year. It would be a good fit for an average-to-good kindergarten student in the summer before first grade. It would also be a good fit for a struggling first grader throughout the year. If your child is working even slightly above grade level, I suspect that the Second Grade work book would be a better fit.

Very Good WorkBook -- a review of Brain Quests 1st Grade workbook 19. November 2008
Von Pam - because someone has to be GOOD - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I have to say I'm pretty impressed with this workbook. Having looked at quite a few, I think Brain Quest is certainly one of the best. The first thing I like is that every topic is color coded. Phonics, for example, is Green, while Writing is orange. From previous experience I can tell you that it helps to navigate and organize your day.

The second thing I noticed was that this workbook, unlike others, more accurately tracks current First Grade curriculum. In the past, I have found that if you wanted a book for 2nd Grade, you had to 'add a year' and get a workbook that said it was for 3rd Graders. Not the case here.

In this respect, I should note that this book assumes that your child has already done some Kindergärten work. The Phonics section, for instance, starts with requesting your student write and know their letter sounds. [[The first assignment shows nine animals, and their names are spelled out, except for the beginning consonant which the student is to write down.]]

Weaknesses :::
The section on science is pretty basic and will need to be heavily supplemented if you are homeschooling.

The section on math skills is good, but you will need to come up with additional problems. There is enough material, in my opinion, to teach the concept, but not enough to practice and confirm that children understand it completely.

The Answers (should you need them) are given in miniature form. The actual pages are shown, but reduced so that 16 fit on a page. And you'll have to figure out what's what. There is an amazing lack of instructions for adults with this book. For example, at the end of the book there are cards that you can cut out to play a game, but there are no instructions for the game.

Strengths :::
The material is nicely presented; I love that there is so much color and that the pages aren't crowded with examples. I've seen many colorless workbooks, and used some on occasion, and they get boring pretty quickly. Similarly, some workbooks try to cram so much on the page, that it is very visually busy: which is very distracting to some children.

The sections and Time and Money are very exceptionally good. As are the sections on Shapes and Measurement.

There are incentive stickers to put on your child's completed pages. They say things like "Wow!" and "Neat!" and "Excellent!"

There is also a Certificate of achievement at the end of the book, along with some stickers with stars and the letters of the alphabet, but I haven't figured out what they are for.

There is an interesting poster at the end of the book which theoretically shows 100 Creatures. (I say theoretically, because we haven't counted them all yet). Around this poster there are numbers that run from 1 to 100. I guess there is a connection.

Summary :::
This is an excellent workbook. It begins where I think most 1st Grade curricula begin these days, covering all of the topics I think my own 1st Grader has covered thus far. I highly recommend it with the following caveats: 1) the math and science topics will need to be supplemented; and 2) I'm not at all convinced that most 1st Grade classes won't move beyond the limits of what is covered in this book.

A banquet of "brain food" to nourish young minds 29. Juli 2008
Von Robert Morris - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is one in a series of workbooks, each of which offers an abundance of learning activities, exercises, and games that are presented with superb production values. Appropriate to the given age level, much of the material focuses on basic subjects such natural science, mathematics, history, and social studies while enabling children to strengthen their reading, reasoning, and writing skills. The editors of Brain Quest believe that:

"All kids are smart - though they learn at their own speed

All kids learn best when they're having fun

All kids deserve the chance to reach their potential - given the tools they need, there's no limit how far they can go!"

I agree, while presuming to add that children will learn more and have more fun meanwhile if, when completing various exercises, adults are involved. As a parent of four and a grandparent of ten, I can personally attest to the pleasure an adult will also have. Each volume in the series is a WORK book. Exercises are completed with crayolas or pencils on the page on which it appears. Correct answers are provided. One caveat: Resist the temptation to control the learning process a child completes an exercise.

This volume, Grade 1 (ages 6-7), was written by Lisa Trumbauer, with Betsy Rogers serving as consulting editor. It is worth noting that Rogers was 2003 National Teacher of the Year. The material consists of organized curriculum-based exercises that help children to gain an understanding of phonics, spelling, vocabulary, language arts, reading, writing, sequencing and sorting, math skills, addition and subtraction, shapes and measurement, time and money, social studies, and science. Also included are more than 150 stickers, an all-new Brain Quest Mini-Card Deck, and a fold-out "100 Creatures" poster.

Here is a representative selection of exercises:

Cat and Snake
Say the word for each picture.
Draw a line from the pictures with the short a sound to the cat.
Draw a line from the pictures with a long a sound to the snake. (Page 37)

Time to Rhyme!
The words on the page all rhyme with brag.
Write each rhyming word [tag, bag, wag, and flag] next to the correct picture. (88)

Doggy Diary
Complete each sentence with a word from the word box. [bark, happy, stick, Gus, and fetch]
My name is....
I like to....
I fetch a....
I like to...
I am a. (142-143)

Connect the Dots!
Connect the dots to make each shape.
Color each shape the same color as the dots. (229)

Drop It in the Bin
Look at the picture on each bin. [PLASTIC, PAPER, and CANS]
Draw a line from all the things you can recycle to the correct bin. (290)

Each of the volumes in this series (pre-K through Grade 4) would be an excellent book for parents, grandparents, and others to purchase and then share with a child at an appropriate stage of her or his development. No doubt there are precocious children who will prefer more challenging material associated with later grades but I think it would be a mistake to rush the learning process. Worse yet, to indicate little interest in it.

Congratulations to the Workman Publishing Company and especially to the editors of Brain Quest. How pleased they must be to know that their materials have already helped to nourish so many young minds and to delight so many young hearts and, fortunately, will continue to do so for the development of other children in months and years to come
