Building Thinking Skills
These thinking skills books are among our favorites because of their tremendous scope. They develop four basic analytical skills (similarities/differences, sequences, classification, and analogies) through both figural and verbal problems.

In addition, there are problems dealing with deductive reasoning, map skills, Venn diagrams, mental manipulation of two-dimensional objects, and much more.

Studies have shown that students using these books have raised their national test scores significantly in both content and cognitive tests! What's more, these books are never boring!

Building Thinking Skills Book 1 includes answers, objectives, and focus questions.
Answers are located in the back of this book.

Beginning Thinking Skills Review by The Flanders Family

review by the Flanders Family

”The workbooks are designed to be consumable, but I’ve always preferred to sit with a child on either side of me and work through the exercises together — at least for the beginning books. They think through each problem and take turns pointing to the correct answer.”

Enough for the year

This book is great because it has enough to last the year and really builds on so many aspects of critical thinking.

Building Thinking Skills

Great basic book for building skills

Daughter liked the book

Our 7 year old enjoyed this book. We only did half of it and we are going to do the other half for 3rd grade. It was nice to add in because it was something we could do together. She would do like 20 pages at a time and then we would not do it for a few weeks. She said that it was a nice "Brain Break", where she could do the pages and just kind of relax because it was fun.
