My Review: Hinkler Books: Write, Slide and Learn: Math, Phonics, and Spelling. I have only known about these books for a couple weeks now I bought that math book and the spelling book from Goodwill for 3 dollars each. As I home school my kindergartner in a preschooler I try to find a fun activity books that will help them easily love to learn to read love to learn to spell love to learn to count and write. These books seem to do that all in one.
The math books specifically helps your child learn how to count from 1 to 12, word problems, missing numbers, most and least, even numbers, odd numbers, counting backwards, addition, subtraction, and other such a valuable skill that children need to learn. My 6 year old loves using these books! He loves being able to slide out the answers to make sure he's doing it properly and it helps and learn to visualize the numbers not just write them.
The Spelling book specifically helps your child learn to spell 280 commonly used words, work on beginning sounds, ending sounds, missing letters, rhyming words, consonants and vowels, and other such important skills needed. Since right now all I have is the last book in the spelling but I can't wait to find the phonics book even if I have to pay full price these are totally worth it I highly recommend these books.
Again these are great for home schoolers for Parents to just want to give their kids extra help with their school work and great for the summertime when you want to make sure your kids don't forget what they learned the previous school year.
Pros: excellent content, easy to use, easy to clean
Cons: I would like to see this series of books come in different levels: like Kindergarten and First Grade.
