The pack opens out so that the main cover you see in the product pictures is the front part of the pack's envelope style opening and inside is the following:
Flash cards which are colour coded for identification into their groups (Proper Nouns, Pronouns, Adjectives, Verbs, Nouns, Suffixes, Contractions and Punctuation)
A covering introduction flier
Chip's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook
Kipper's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook
Biff's Spelling Workbook
Sticker sheet which included well done stickers and jigsaw piece stickers
Sticker Chart where the jigsaw puzzle piece stickers go when prompted in the workbooks
The workbooks each have a different theme and each have different exercises for your child to work through which are complimented by bright colourful illustrations and fun games to keep your child interested. The books prompt your child to stick one of the well done/reward stickers on every other page once the exercises on those pages have been completed and also prompt when your child can add a main puzzle piece to the main sticker chart. On the inside back cover of each book is an answers page so that anyone who may be a bit rusty on the subjects covered has help to hand. I must admit I knew what homophones were but I didn't know that that was the 'proper' word for them and so I've learned something too.Read more ›
The kit includes three workbooks:- Biff's Spelling Workbook, Chip's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook, and Kipper's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook. It also includes a sticker chart, and some flashcards.
Biff's Spelling Workbook is sixteen pages in length. It looks at letter groups used to produce certain sounds, prefixes, suffixes, root words, syllables and homophones. It is clearly presented, and on certain pages your child earns a puzzle piece sticker for their chart. Smaller stickers are also earned on every double-page spread, as a reward for completing a section.
Chip's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook is also sixteen pages. It continues on from Biff's workbook, and examines contractions, possession, nouns, pronouns and tenses. It continues with reward stickers for each section tackled by your child.
The final book, Kipper's Grammar and Punctuation Workbook continues on from Chip's book. It explores verbs, adjectives, punctuation and plurals.
All three workbooks are easy to comprehend, and my six year old massively enjoyed working through them. She is due to complete her Key Stage 1 SAT tests this week, so I hope they have helped to consolidate all that she knows.
The cards can be used to explore grammatically correct sentence formation. They can also be used for several games, as detailed with the instructions.Read more ›
However, the exercises and activities are very well presented.
Essentially, advice is included for parents too; reward systems and sing-alongs are no use without adequate parental involvement. And there ARE excellent, brightly coloured 'Well done!" stickers to boost self-esteem, plus useful "ditties" to recite with an adult.
So, ticks all the boxes for stimulating cognitive learning -with the right attentive parental encouragement.
I am probably being a tad churlish for docking a star for the age targeting -it's just my personal opinion.
There are also flash cards and stickers (which make a nice jigsaw).
Aimed at 6/7 year olds, this may be good for 5+ year olds when under supervision.
