Review by Homeschool Circus

Three Critical Thinking selections from Timberdoodle

“Jen told her friends that what she does for a living takes strength, skill, patience, determination and lots of guts.  What does she do?”

Curious to know the answer?????  Please read on…..

The following selections (Word Roots B1 Grades 7+, Visual Perceptual Skill Building Book 2 Grades 2-4, Red Herring Mysteries Level 1 Grade 4-6) and more can be found at Timberdoodle.

Visual Perceptual Skill Building Book 2 Grades 2-4
One thing I love about The Critical Thinking Company is that they do include thorough directions with all their products.  First, in using Visual Perceptual Skill Building, administer the pretests for all 8 sections. (Which include:  Visual Motor Integration, Discrimination, Closure, Figure Ground, Form Constancy, Memory, Sequential Memory, and Spatial Relationships)  This sounds like a lot, but, it really goes quickly.  From there you score each section to see if additional work is needed within that section.  (If there is not, there’s no need to complete that particular section)

From the book:
“The emphasis is on the development of visual perceptual skills necessary in today’s world of academic learning, computers and early career skills”.

Visual perception is among the last skills a child develops.  Abilities such as concentration and behavioral organization are an essential part of academic learning capacity.  Good neurological integration contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-control.  None of the aforementioned functions develop at exclusively one age;  rather, the child works at each level of sensory integration throughout childhood.”

I administered the pre-test to my 2nd and 4th graders.  My 4th grader needed just a wee-bit of help in two areas.  I wasn’t too surprised to find that my 2nd grader needed a small bit of help in 4 areas.  But, I was surprised to see her outscore her brother on the Visual Sequential Memory!  The pretest also pointed out a slight problem in drawing matching geometric shapes.  Since the book gives VERY good guidance in pinpointing problems and how to proceed, I trust that after remedial work in only these trouble areas will produce success as will be shown in the post tests that are also provided.

Above selections and more can be found at Timberdoodle.

Last but not least, the initial quote of this posting is from the Red Herring Mysteries .  I thank you so very much for reading this far.  I’d love to tell you the answer, but first you need to ask me a question that I can answer with a “yes” or “no”….please submit your questions below and I will be sure to answer.

Come on, try it – it’s a lot of fun!
