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 How Alike and How Different?, Deductive Reasoning, Diagraming Classes, Mixed Analogies, 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!

Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words as they:
  • Observe, recognize, and describe characteristics.
  • Distinguish similarities and differences.
  • Identify and complete sequences, classifications, and analogies.
  • These processes help children develop superior thinking and communication skills that lead to deeper content learning in all subjects.

    Considered to be a full credit if both Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Figural and Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Verbal are completed. This book alone is considered to be only 1/2 credit (1/2 year or 1 semester).

    Answers are located in the back of this book.

    Building Thinking Skills Figural Review by the Flanders Family

    review by the Flanders Family

    ”I can’t help but think all that practice on figural problems helped when it came time for our two dentists to take their DATs! The exercises in the verbal volume of Book 3 are great prep for the SAT, as well.”

    Perfect for my ADHD eighth grader to start the day.

    Love this book.

    My daughter needs extra support in organizing her thoughts. This helped to slow down her thought processes and organize them.

    My Daughter Loves This Book!

    The Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Figural has become my 8th grade daughter's favorite book to work on this year. She finds a lot of the puzzles and shapes challenging but loves working to figure them out. I love that it's getting her to really think outside of the box.

    This has been a great book for my son to work on his visual perception skills. So far he seems to enjoy it and does fairly well at the different activities.

    Building Thinking Skills Book 3 Figural

    My kids have used all of the Building Thinking Skills books and I think it really helps them think outside of the box. It was a little tough when they were younger, but I've noticed that it's helped them build on the previous books they've done.
