When my daughter had their book fair at school three (3) years ago (she was only in the Preparatory Level then, now she's in Grade 3) I decided to come with her to check on the books available on the fair. I have a second thought that if I will just give the money she might buy books that are not of importance on her learning progress. The book fair was great. I saw different story books, workbooks, art books plus more that truly kids will not be able to identify what they will really pick. Personally, I want my kids to be diligent on their studies and I always told them the many reasons why. I wanted them to give utmost importance on each and every subject especially Math and English subjects. In that regard, I supported them thru investing on different workbooks or activity books that will help them practice on numbers and words.On that book fair I saw this 100 Words Kids Need to Read by 2nd Grade. Although she's only in the Preparatory Level I guess doing some advance learning will help her a lot. It introduces 100 sight words and encourages kids to practice reading. I checked it cover to cover and I could say that with all the different simple reading activities inside my daughter will find reading easy and fun. There's alphabetizing staircase, matching type and fill in the blanks of the correct word. She will be guided with a word box on most of the activities where she can pick the right word to complete the sentence, paragraph or story.
Now that she is 9 years old and currently a Grade 3 student, I could say that this workbook helps me a lot in introducing reading to her in an easy and fun way. She excels on her English subject. Actually, she won first prize in a Spelling Contest among Grade 1 students and consistent recipient of academic excellence for English subject. I owe these achievements to the workbooks I bought for her like this one.
