Mysteries Teach Us
Everyone loves a mystery--maybe not the blood-and-guts type, but we all like to ponder a riddle or be the first to discover a clue. Daily Mind Builders Language Arts employs that natural bent by providing your children with two puzzles a day.
Two Daily Activities
The first is a short true mystery that requires deductive thinking and inferential reasoning to arrive at a conclusion. This type of comprehension is an essential skill for standardized reading tests that often determines a child's reading score. The second puzzle looks at the meaning of words and the relationships between them.
Watch Them Sparkle!
Daily Mind Builders Language Arts is a short, five- to ten-minute activity that will get listless brain cells to sparkle. Whether you use it at the start or end of the school day, your children will eagerly look forward to unraveling the mysteries, and you will love seeing the progress they make in accurately identifying and evaluating evidence. For grades 5 – 12; answers are included.
In addition to waking up sleepy brains for the day's lessons, these short, fun daily activity pages develop the most important reading comprehension skill found on all standardized reading tests. Synthesizing disparate information and using the result to produce a reasonable conclusion is an essential skill assessed on standardized reading tests. This comprehension skill usually determines a child's reading score–-and every Daily Mind Builders™ page develops this skill.
Each daily activity page includes two puzzles. The first puzzle is a short true mystery. Its solution requires careful reading, inferential reasoning, and deductive thinking. The second puzzle involves a process of elimination involving the meanings of words or relationships between words. Try the samples and you'll be hooked!
