Beyond Drill to Real Skills
Most parents know that a child who only memorizes math facts without really understanding math will find progressively complex concepts more and more difficult to understand. But what they erroneously think is that such problems arise about the time a child is memorizing the multiplication table. Not so. Unlike reading, an integral skill that is tightly woven throughout our entire day, math tends to be a more sporadic subject, essential when you need it and then easily set aside. That is why it is imperative that a child is able to reason his way through any mathematical problem.

Award-winning Mathematical Reasoning is a great place to start. With 250 pages of quick, straightforward problems to build mathematical reasoning skills in kindergartners, these highly motivational activities will take your child beyond mere drill work by using step-by-step, discussion-based problem solving. Concepts spiral gradually so that children do not forget as they go. The concepts are written to the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Non-reproducible.

Topics/activities include Addition, Bar Graph, Calendar, Capacity, Coins, Count, Fractions, Language, Length, Likelihood, Match, Number Line, Odd/Even, Order, Pattern, Real World Problems, Shapes, Subtraction, Time, Weight, and Whole Numbers.
Answer guide included in the back of the book.

    Mathematical Reasoning January 16, 2017
    Reviewer: JJ, age 6 from Michigan  
    I like doing the sums the best. And I like beginning subtraction picture because it makes it easy to understand "take aways." I especially love the pictures of food they use to explain the take away problems.

    Math reasoning A September 13, 2016
    Reviewer: kristina meyers from Marysville, WA United States  
    We are about 30 pages into Math reasoning A and my daughter is doing quite well with it. I think it is perfectly leveled at Kindergarten, as some of the concepts are a bit difficult for her to grasp at 4.5. There are a few pages where she can do things on her own once they have been explained, and she has enjoyed learning things like even and odd, and is having success with most of the activities. Occasionally there will be several pages in a row that she cannot do without extensive adult help. We are planning to use this as a complete math curriculum for her school year.

    My 4 year olds LOVED this workbook September 12, 2016
    Reviewer: Anya Wimberly from San Antonio, TX United States  
    I was suprised that they enjoyed this workbook so much. We have a lot of multisensory, hands-on learning materials and I supplement with Montessori materials, but this was their absolut go-to thing. They wanted to do several pages in one sitting. I thought it did a really good job of introducing different skills, keeping the material interesting and perfect for those short attention spans.

    My 5yo loves this! July 27, 2016
    Reviewer: Tanya Mize from Felton, DE United States  
    This is the 2nd book she asks to do every day, right after logic. She likes the bright colors and fun pictures and I like the spiral approach so she doesn't get bored doing the same thing day after day. I think once we finish this book, we will be getting the 1st grade book as well.

    LOVE these books! June 7, 2016
    Reviewer: Krista Lynn from Burleson, TX United States  
    This is our second book to go through and my 5 year old begs for more, more, more! I have to literally limit her on pages at times. She is not near this eager in ANY other subject. The bright colors and simple language grab and hold her interest. I do have to read it for her sometimes, but we consider that fun mommy/daughter time in the recliner. We are sticking with Mathematical Reasoning!
