Timberdoodle Review: Editor-In-Chief B1

Recently I was given the opportunity to review two books from Critical Thinking Press, through Timberdoodle.

I chose Editor-In-Chief B1 for Lee, who is in grade 8 right now. This book is for grades 6-8 and she is really keen on correct forms of writing. I thought this would be something she would like to use. I’m not sure I did so good on my guess.

The book is really good- it has interesting entries that the student is to ‘correct’. According to the description at Timberdoodle, the student will develop correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, capitalization, and attention to detail using a standards-based thinking approach rather than drill and practice. Because it is geared more toward real-life application (as opposed to say, multiple choice or fill in the blank) it was of interest to me. I find it is always easier to retain information when we are actually doing what we are learning.

First we tried to let her do it on her own but there are no set instructions on how to use the book. Then we would sit and look at the passage together. After we thought we had figured all the mistakes or made our corrections, we checked the answers in the back. Well, after doing some of these, I see I am in need of some grammar and attention to detail study!

The book is difficult for her, to say the least. Definitely not a bad  book! But I think this will need to set until next year. We’ve not doing enough with editing to jump in with this book yet. It is not a light editing book- they mean business!

You can find this books at Timberdoodle, by publisher Critical Thinking Co. Or if you are interested in thinking skills games they have plenty of those, too! They even have entire curriculum for all years.

Editor-In-Chief B1 $16.99

    Hello and wolecme, Christi!Every child is different. My middle children have been unable to do social things very well until recently. Even now it is difficult for them, but it has never been a matter of my holding them back in order to make them overdependent and stunted. It doesn’t sound like you are doing that, either. In my house if you act like a baby, you do get treated like a baby and that means no video game time and outside trips. The teens aren’t right by my side any more, but the general principle is good. The walloping session as outlined in that link creeped me out, though. I’d like to say theoretically that I’m not against parents using physical discipline, but when I read stuff like this, I think some kid is gonna be dead esp. if he is disabled/unable to snap to it for a bit there…
