Summary

Now first- and second-graders can really sharpen their skills. Announcing Brain Quest Math and Brain Quest Reading, a natural extension of Brain Quest into single-subject tutorials. Using the same curriculum-based, question-and-answer format that has made Brain Quest America's #1 educational bestseller with over 16 million copies in print, Math and Reading concentrate on the two subjects that are of paramount importance for parents, teachers, and especially the kids.Math is as focused as flash cards, but with far more range, interactivity, and educational value. Each grade comprises two decks. 1st Grade has five questions to a card, covering Numeration, or the basics of numbers; Bits & Pieces, including shapes and equivalents; Computation-addition and subtraction; Measurements; and Problem-Solving. 2nd Grade, with seven questions to a card, adds two new categories to the original five-Super Computation, which has more complicated operations, and Fun with Numbers.Reading takes a thorough approach to working on the fundamentals of reading and language arts. First comes an original one-page story illustrated in full-color, with 56 stories per grade. Following the story card is a comprehension card, quizzing the reader about the story, its characters, and content. Following that card is a second question card-five questions for 1st Grade, seven for 2nd Grade-on Grammar, Word Choice, Phonics, Vocabulary, Extensions, and Mixed Bag.A strong foundation in math, a strong foundation in reading-that's what elementary education is all about. Making it fun to learn is what Brain Quest is all about-that, and reinforcing the idea that It's O.K. to Be Smart!
