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!
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.

review by My Life on a Taffy Pull
"She’s been working through it now for a couple weeks and her honest opinion is that it’s 'a little boring.' When I was asking her why I realized that book is divided into sections with the same sorts of activities, so it wasn’t that it was boring per se, it was that she was doing the same type of thinking skill each day. To make things more interesting I suggested she move around a little in the book to keep things fresh and exciting. That did the trick!"Read the Full Review

"The books use both figural and verbal problems to develop four important analytical skills: recognizing similarities/differences, completing sequences, developing classification skills, and understanding analogies. The further you go in the series, the more detailed and complex the exercises become."Read the Full Review
I have my daughter do this 3-5 days a week, but each exercise is so short she can do 3-5 pages in a single day if she wants to. I love this because she gets these skills sharpened but in little exercises. I plan on using this in probably 2 years worth of school.
This covers so many conversational skills and thinking.
Very nice . Fun to use as a part of learning .my child enjoys it .
Good stretching exercises for the mind. Building a solid logic base.
My kids love this series of critical thinking books. It is the perfect blend of fun and challenging.
