We are a skill sharpeners family and am so happy that Timberdoodle suggested these fun and engaging books.
I like that it has a variety of tasks despite being a workbook--it starts with introducing new terms, then some writing/drawing, cutting and pasting, and finally making something (like cutting out pieces to makes a volcano). Geography is one of Amess favorite subjects, so he would happily do the whole lesson in one day rather than week.
We used Geography Skill Sharpeners Grade K for my 5-year old’s Kindergarten year, and it was fantastic. We used it just about once a week for most of the school year (though we finished the book before 180 days). My 5-year-old would squeal with excitement when it was time for this workbook, and I’m sure would have finished the whole book in a week if given the opportunity. There is a mix of reading, writing, coloring, cutting, pasting, etc. The pages are colorful and engaging. Some of my 5-year-old’s favorites were making a paper volcano (landforms section) and paper snake (deserts section). I would not consider this to be your stand-alone geography curriculum, but it was great in addition to other geography texts. It is worth the price. I am purchasing the Geography Skill Sharpeners Grade 1 for 1st grade and the Pre-K Geography Skill Sharpeners for my 3-year-old.
My 5 year old FLEW through these pages! Simple and easy instructions.
Very happy with this geography book. Covers topics easily and straightforward for a kindergartener.
