The colored activity sheets are reproducible for single-home/classroom use. A student should be able to complete the activities independently with little parent/teacher assistance.
Johanna is just over the grade/age suggestion for this program. Although she has used a curriculum from The Critical Thinking Co during a prior review, she is new to their program designed to develop critical thinking skills. I reviewed sample pages and felt she could benefit from this level and still experience some challenge.
When the activity book arrived, Johanna jumped in before I really had a chance to look it over. She was drawn to the colorful pages and engaging activities. In the first chapter, she especially enjoyed the exercises in recognizing the folded patterns and describing positions. She feels some of the activities are like solving a puzzle.
