The School Zone Basics series can be used to reinforce what is being taught at school or introduce new skills to a child who needs more challenging material. The introduction of each skill is presented with clear examples and an appropriate amount of practice problems that will not be tiresome for a child to complete. Preschoolers and kindergartners will enjoy charming illustrations that lead them through the skills taught at this level. The first and second grade workbooks focus primarily on reading, grammar, and math. The exercises are grade appropriate and cover essential basics needed for future success in school.
