Building Thinking Skills
These thinking skills books are among our favorites because of their tremendous scope. They develop four basic analytical skills (similarities/differences, sequences, classification, and analogies) through both figural and verbal problems.
In addition, there are problems dealing with deductive reasoning, map skills, Venn diagrams, mental manipulation of two-dimensional objects, and much more.
Studies have shown that students using these books have raised their national test scores significantly in both content and cognitive tests! What's more, these books are never boring!
Another outstanding component of
Timberdoodle's 2015 Second-Grade Curriculum Kit!
Building Thinking Skills® provides highly effective verbal and nonverbal reasoning activities to improve vocabulary, reading, writing, math, logic, and figural-spatial skills, as well as visual and auditory processing. This exceptional skill set provides a solid foundation for academic excellence and success on any assessment test.
The activities are sequenced developmentally. Each skill (for example, classifying) is presented first in the semi-concrete figural-spatial form and then in the abstract verbal form. Children learn to analyze relationships between objects, between words, and between objects and words as they:
Observe, recognize, and describe characteristics.
Distinguish similarities and differences.
Identify and complete sequences, classifications, and analogies.
While a few pages in Book 1 do utilize manipulatives, there are certainly not enough to justify any additional expense. Unless you already have these manipulatives, we suggest that you either be creative or skip those pages.
Building Thinking Skills Book 1
includes answers, objectives, and focus questions.
