A Lion's World & Planets/Weigl Publishers Inc.
My older boys, ages almost 3 and 5, have really enjoyed reading and looking at the pictures in A Lion's World and Planets. These will be nice beginning reader level books for the upcoming Kindergarten year as well. The Planets book was so much fun that it inspired us to make a "Planet Mobile" by using the images in the book as a reference.
Not bad for preschoolers!
Both books come with a code that gives the reader access to six eBooks in six different languages. There is also a "Key Words" table in the back covering sight words and content words.
Mentoring Minds: TEKS Mastery Series (ELA)
Honestly, reviewing this book was a "whoops" because it is meant for 6-12 grade. Not 6 year olds. Like I said, whoops! I did look over the material myself anyways and there were a few things I did like.
I like that this guide is a spiral, flat-lying book which would be very handy for following along during lessons. Each lesson is broken up to cover vocabulary, building activities and assessments of each concept along with tips for teachers as they cover these lessons. The book really doesn't contain any exciting imagery or any way to make math more "fun" but then again this is geared towards older students. Maybe there will be something more visually stimulating available when we get to that bridge!
I received these educational products from Academics' Choice free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
