Are Pre-K and Kinder Workbooks Worth the Money?

Did y’all know that we homeschooled Boy, K-12 – back when homeschooling was quasi-illegal in Texas?

REBELS!

The understanding of the law surrounding homeschoolers was so precarious (we schooled during the years the deciding case was being argued before the Texas Supreme Court) that I carried the name and number of our lawyer everywhere we went.

OUTLAWS!

My love-of-teaching run deep, so of course while Sweet E was here in the summer, I felt we should stay sharp for the upcoming school year.

This is a review of the workbooks we used.

Sweet E’s and my review for the Pre-K Workbook:

* Each workbook should be approached as a fun supplement and time spent per session kept to 5-10 minutes for the Pre-K group. Less is more, yo!

* Sweet E LOVED the circling activities, the tracing pages and ALWAYS wanted me to read through the workbook.

* The pages are colorful and PACKED full of info and activities. We likey!

* Sweet E WASN’T fond of tracing and writing the numbers or letters (refused, actually!). He preferred to write when it was a secondary activity.

* If you have a kiddo that is already very familiar with numbers and letters, this workbook may be a bit boring for them. Pass go, and grab the Kinder workbook!

Sweet E’s and my review for the Kindergarten Workbook:

* Connect the dots = YES!

* Maze fun = YES!

* Draw lines to match = YES!

* Circling “less” and “more” = YES!

* Next in sequence = YES!

* Color codes = YES!

* Tracing numbers and letters = Plttt! Thumbs down.

* Reading the colorful pages and interacting verbally = YES!

Out of 5 stars, I’d give each book a 4.

Each workbook kept Sweet E engaged and interested.

These workbooks are great for enrichment or to use in homeschooling.

I’ve always looked for ways to make learning fun – for the spark of learning, instead of forced learning- so even for me, workbook stuff can get old quick, which is why I suggest to keep the sessions to small bites.

Overall these workbooks are a fun diversion to ordinary school work. They can work as a rainy day activity to an actual supplement to schooling.

I’m sold and can heartily recommend.

Happy Learning, Littles!
