Research has shown that repetition is essential for the brain to learn and recall information. Furthermore, children have a tendency to repeat activities they enjoy. The engaging games and puzzles in this book will provide your child with repeated practice of grade-level-appropriate math skills. Continued practice with these skills helps develop a strong understanding of basic math concepts and builds a solid foundation in math problem solving, an important tool for academic success.
Upon your child’s completion of each activity, use the provided incentive chart and stickers to track progress and celebrate your child’s success.
Whether students need extra practice with grade-level skills or a head start on next year, Stick Kids® Workbooks offer engaging activities, games, and puzzles that help make learning lots of fun. Each 56-page book features full-color activities, a list of the skills, and an explanation of why those skills are important for development. Also included are helpful tips, an answer key, a handy tracking sheet, stickers for acknowledging achievements, and appearances by the lovable Stick Kids!
These right-sized (7” x 9”) skill practice workbooks are perfect for use at school, or as entertaining activities on the go. Tuck them into a backpack, purse, or travel bag. Great for school breaks, vacations, and year-long practice.

- Assist your child in identifying key math terms, such as in all, altogether, sum, take away, from, difference, even, odd, equal, greater than, and less than.
- Ask your child to explain his or her answers.
